Hi! I’m so sorry if this question is stupid. So the main character in my story is bilingual. How do I show how she switches between English and her native tongue while talking with her mother, from the perspective of the main character and someone who’s not bilingual. I don’t know what to Google for this problem. (btw, I’m also trilingual)


Not at all! This is a good question and I’ve written a couple posts about it before here and here

Additional Resources for Writing Multilingual Dialogue:

For future reference, I Googled “how to write multilingual dialogue” and Google provided similar search requests at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for asking!
