Abstract: The human ability to speak two languages can be defined as bilingualism; moreover, a person who is able to speak two languages fluently is known as a bilingual.Code switching is a fundamental function in bilingualism because bilinguals change between languages in the same conversation group in order to make other members understand easily. Undoubtedly, alternating during conversation can be an important technique for producing relationships between individuals and can be beneficial for representing group identity. This seminar is about the importance of doing code switch by bilinguals. Also, the place and reasons of doing it by bilinguals, as well. 

Keywords: bilinguals, code-switch, alternating, bilingualism and technique.
