We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Message 1: Heritage Language Speakers
From: Karen Stanley <karen.stanleycpcc.edu>
Subject: Heritage Language Speakers
At TESOL 2006, I went to a colloquium which linked Heritage Language
speakers and Generation 1.5 students. Frank Noji from Kapiolani Community
College was particularly informative in this regard.
This was a particularly interesting topic for me since Academic ESL and
Foreign Languages are housed in the same department at my college.
Frank Noji has been kind enough to send me a first draft of his paper, and
through that I was able to track down the article in Heritage Language
Journal, ''Heritage Language Instruction for Post-secondary Students from
Immigrant Backgrounds'' by Kimi Kondo-Brown, University of Hawai'i at
Manoa. Other articles in the magazine are also interesting.
I would be interested in other articles that explore the Heritage Language
speaker population, especially those which look at effective language
teaching methodology for use with adults, particularly in a college
