What is a heritage speaker?
"Spanish heritage Speaker" is a term used to refer to persons who grew up (in the U.S.) hearing and speaking Spanish, generally from their parents or grandparents. However, they may have not reached the competence and literacy of natives speakers. Typically, heritage speakers have had little exposure to writing and reading in their heritage language, so these skills may need to be developed. Likewise, heritage speakers may function well in everyday, common interactions, but may struggle expressing themselves in more academic or formal setting.
