Summary:   REGARDING QUERY: HTTP://LINGUISTLIST.ORG/ISSUES/17/17-1321.HTML#1

I RECENTLY QUERIED LINGUIST FOR ARTICLES THAT EXPLORE THE HERITAGE LANGUAGE
SPEAKER POPULATION, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHICH LOOK AT EFFECTIVE LANGUAGE
TEACHING METHODOLOGY FOR USE WITH ADULTS, PARTICULARLY IN A COLLEGE
CLASSROOM SETTING.

IN MY OWN POST, I MENTIONED A PRESENTATION BY FRANK NOJI FROM KAPIOLANI
COMMUNITY COLLEGE AT TESOL 2006. FRANK IS FINISHING UP THE PAPER ON WHICH
HIS PRESENTATION WAS BASED.

I ALSO MENTIONED THE HERITAGE LANGUAGE JOURNAL, IN PARTICULAR THE ARTICLE,
''HERITAGE LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION FOR POST-SECONDARY STUDENTS FROM IMMIGRANT
BACKGROUNDS'' BY KIMI KONDO-BROWN, UNIVERSITY OF HAWAI'I AT MANOA.
HTTP://WWW.INTERNATIONAL.UCLA.EDU/LRC/HLJ/ABOUT.ASP

--------------------------------------------------------------

LOUISE WILLOUGHBY [ LOUISA.WILLOUGHBY@ARTS.MONASH.EDU.AU ] RECOMMENDED

CLYNE, MICHAEL, SUE FERNANDEZ, IMOGEN CHEN AND RENATA SUMMO-O'CONNELL.

CANBERRA: LANGUAGE AUSTRALIA.

AND SUGGESTED MICHEAL'S ARTICLE IF I WERE UNABLE TO GET THE BOOK:

CLYNE, MICHAEL. 1997. MANAGING LANGUAGE DIVERSITY AND SECOND LANGUAGE
PROGRAMMES IN AUSTRALIA. CURRENT ISSUES IN LANGUAGE AND SOCIETY. 4. 94-119.

FOR PEOPLE INTERESTED IN THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN CURRENT AUSTRALIAN
PROGRAMS, ANOTHER GOOD ARTICLE IS

ELDER, CATHY. 2000. OUTING THE NATIVE SPEAKER: THE PROBLEM OF DIVERSE
LEARNER BACKGROUNDS IN 'FOREIGN' LANGUAGE CLASSROOMS - AN AUSTRALIAN CASE
STUDY. LANGUAGE, CULTURE AND CURRICULUM. 13. 86-108.

LOUISA ALSO OFFERED A COPY OF HER OWN ARTICLE (IN PRESS) LOOKING
SPECIFICALLY AT THE FACTORS MOTIVATING HERITAGE LANGUAGE SPEAKERS TO (NOT)
STUDY THEIR HERITAGE IN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL.

FERNANDA FERREIRA [ FFERREIRA@BRIDGEW.EDU ]

REFERRED ME TO AN ARTICLE OF HERS ABOUT PORTUGUESE HERITAGE LEARNERS IN
MASSACHUSETTS, IN THE HISPANIA JOURNAL (THE PEER-REVIEWED JOURNAL OF THE
AATSP) WHICH CAME OUT IN DECEMBER 2005. IN THAT ARTICLE SHE EXPLORES HOW
TALKING ABOUT THE INHERENT DIVERSITY OF LANGUAGE HAS HELPED INTERMEDIATE
LEVEL LEARNERS.

SHE IS ALSO CURRENTLY WORKING ON A MORE QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE
HERITAGE LANGUAGE POPULATION, WHICH SHE OFFERED TO SEND.
