Calling All Heritage Language Schools in the Community

Join the network; spread the word.

The Coalition of Community-Based Heritage Language Schools keeps count of those who are teaching heritage languages outside the public/private school system. So far over 300 community-based programs have registered that help maintain 36 heritage languages. You can let them know about your language program by completing this survey.

Check to see if your home language already has a representative. The biography of each representative can inform you of community organizations and scholar groups that are active with language education in specific home languages. If you don’t see your language listed yet, consider nominating someone who can represent it. 

You can follow events related to community-based heritage language education on Facebook.

Volunteer teachers of heritage languages can learn contemporary language teaching methods in an online workshop offered by the National Heritage Language Resource Center, which is housed at the UCLA International Institute. 

Looking for free children’s books in your heritage language? Try the Bloom Library, which hosts picture ebooks in 460 languages.
