This collection of studies investigates the individual,
micro-psychological, and macro-societal factors that promote or discourage
the development of child and young adult heritage language learners' spoken
and written skills in East Asian languages (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean).
The research presented in this book is based on empirical data from various
learning and social settings in the United States and Canada. The
contributors are themselves mostly from East Asian immigrant backgrounds
and have worked closely with students from such backgrounds. This book also
speaks to the needs for future research within East Asian communities that
will (a) promote East Asian heritage language development in applied
linguistics, (b) encourage parental, community, and national support for
East Asian heritage language development, and (c) improve the teaching of
oral and written skills for heritage learners of East Asian languages in
various educational settings.
