Query:   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
classroom setting.
