Heritage Language Learning Initiative at UNC Charlotte

Welcome to the Heritage Language Learning Initiative at UNC Charlotte. We seek to increase understanding of and knowledge about heritage speakers in the American educational context, and to strengthen bilingual/heritage language education practices by connecting scholars, language instructors, and students at the local, regional, national, and international level. We also work on establishing a multi-disciplinary academic group dedicated to better serving the needs of (Latinx) heritage speakers at UNC Charlotte, and to promote current debates on Heritage Language Education. To do so, we organize and promote the Annual Heritage Language Learning Symposium.
