‘She Really Only Speaks English’: Positioning, Language Ideology, and Heritage
Language Learners

**Winner of the 2011 Best Graduate Student Paper Award / Gagnant du Concours du
meilleur article par un étudiant diplômé**

This article draws on data from an ethnographic multiple-case study on the
identity, positioning, and interactions of Spanish as a heritage language (SHL)
students in regular Canadian high school Spanish classes. Interview and
classroom observational data are discursively analyzed to reveal the presence of
a form of language ideology that equates displayed Spanish speaking ability with
language proficiency and heritage. This type of language ideology particularly
impacted how one SHL student, who was reluctant to speak Spanish, was positioned
and treated in class in ways that not only did not acknowledge her Hispanic
heritage or encourage the development of her oral skills, but also did not
recognize the usefulness of her literacy skills. This article problematizes the
assumptions that HL students are typically able (and willing) to speak their HL
and that this ability is viewed as their most important asset in class. The
article concludes with pedagogical implications and directions for future research.
