While there are many heritage languages spoken within the United States, Spanish is the language that is of particular interest in this study due to the fact that it is the predominant of the group. This study will present an introduction to the field of heritage linguistics and explore ways in which the divide between heritage language and second language learners can be remedied within the language classroom. Furthermore, I review future implications for the Spanish heritage speaking population.
