Source code in the app folder is compiled as one assenbly so you cannot mix languages.
You can configure your web application to treat different sub folders in the app folder as different assemblies.

Each folder can then contain source code in a different programming language. The configuration is specified by creating a codeSubDirectories element in the compilation element of the Web.config file and adding a reference to the subfolder. The following example illustrates how you would configure subfolders named VBCode and CSCode to compile into separate assemblies:

<compilation debug="false">    
    <codeSubDirectories>        
        <add directoryName="VBCode" />        
        <add directoryName="CSCode" />    
    </codeSubDirectories> </compilation>

Create the Two separate sub folders in App_code named VBCode (contains VB Class files *.vb) and CSCode (Contains CS Class files *.cs) then modify the web.config like this

<compilation debug="false">    
    <codeSubDirectories>        
        <add directoryName="VBCode" />        
        <add directoryName="CSCode" />    
    </codeSubDirectories> </compilation>

This shouldn't be a problem at all. I'm doing in in DotNetNuke programming right now. No issues at all.
