This online professional course for teachers of heritage language learners, developed by the National Heritage Language Resource Center (NHLRC), is a one-semester course, with 5 self-paced modules, that can be taken when the participant chooses. As you complete the first module, you will gain a better understanding of important differences between heritage language learners (HLLs) and foreign language learners (FLLs). In the second module, you will learn about strategies for working with heritage language students in the classroom. Module 3 focuses on issues that are language specific. For each language, you will hear a scholar discuss topics that s/he has found relevant and challenging in the teaching of that language to heritage language students.
