This paper explores Vietnamese ethnic minority students’ translanguaging beliefs and practices, and their identity construction via translanguaging. It specifically examines how the students’ translanguaging between their ethnic language (L1), Vietnamese (L2) and other languages is linked to their language shift and identity transformation as they partake in the mainstream society where Vietnamese is prevalent.
