Abstract

My presentation will introduce the key terminology to heritage language education: heritage language, heritage language learner and speaker, and heritage culture. Second, I will explain the significance of the three types of bilingualism (receptive, sequential, and simultaneous) and how they inform curriculum design for K-12 students. Third, I will address the need to separate heritage learners from L2 students. Lastly, I will give details of the different forms of assessments and the disadvantages that may arise from them.
