The Heritage Language Journal
Heritage Language Education is fast becoming a field of its own, drawing from research and practice in linguistics, psychology, and language education. [...] there is great deal of interest in but little understanding of the issues underlying the teaching and learning of heritage languages. There is a demonstrable need for a forum for ongoing discussion among researchers and educators interested in heritage language acquisition.
The Heritage Language Journal is published by the Language Resource Center of UCLA and the UC Consortium for Language Learning and Teaching with support from the UCLA International Institute and the Division of Social Sciences and Department of Linguistics at UC San Diego.
