Individuals use two or more languages to communicate both with those who speak their language, but also with those who speak a different one. Bacterial cells use two or multisignaling systems to communicate both with their species, but also different strains. This truth encapsulates the width of this study, which presents an initial comparative opportunity between both communication structures, aiming to initiate an innovative discourse in bilingual education research. Such bold argument could be a very long stretch in the minds of many, but we must be clear: this paper’s purpose is to be constructive in the interdisciplinary communication protocol, simply an attempt to see beyond the visible. Furthermore, this document offers an original perspective on the communication system in bacterial cell strains and that of humans by presenting certain parallel communicative realities.
