For this Capstone project, we examined the definition and aspects of language brokering. Specifically, through reviewing and exploring the literature that discusses significant findings from previous research, we investigated the factors that are involved in language brokering. We examined the issues and impacts of language brokering on the child, acculturation process, and family structure. Our project focused primarily on gathering data from surveys given to Latino students who translate for their parents and are between the ages of 18-25. We then analyzed the findings and reflected on our experiences collecting data while collaborating with a distinguished faculty member (Dr. Robert Weisskirch) whose research specializes in the area of language brokering.
