Enseñanza del Español como Lengua Heredada

Recursos para la enseñanza del español para hablantes de herencia.

Heritage Spanish | COERLL

Despite their growing popularity, Heritage Spanish programs remain underserved by commercial textbook publishers. What that means for us who teach heritage learners is that we are left either to adapt the few published materials that do exist to fit our programs or else to create our own. This community is intended to become a place where you can find and share resources easily. Share your resources (syllabi, activities, lessons, etc.), or information about events with this growing community.
