We are pleased to publish the first in a series of quarterly newsletters dedicated to the issues of heritage language (HL) teaching. Each newsletter will include a discussion of a topic that informs the teaching of dedicated HL or mixed HL/non-HL classes. In addition, each issue will include a focus on a successful HL teaching program; this issue includes Alegria Ribadeneira’s article on a program at Colorado State University – Pueblo.
Maria Carreira, Co-Director, NHLRC (CSULB/UCLA), and Claire Chik, Assistant Director, NHLRC, are the newsletter’s creators and editors and have written the lead article in this first issue. In the future, the newsletter will include a blog that we hope you’ll contribute to. Our goal is to provide connections and create a community of HL teachers. Please think of contributing articles or short comments about the challenges you face and successes you’ve experienced.
