Teaching Spanish as a Heritage Language: A Case for Language Awareness.
Gutierrez, John R.
ADFL Bulletin, v29 n1 p33-36 Fall 1997
Current and aspiring teachers of college Spanish need an awareness of how and why the language and dialects are used in real-life contexts, and to understand the value of the variations as well as that of standard usage. Training of teaching assistants and language teachers should include basic notions of sociolinguistics, including the functions of dialect. (MSE)
