2011, December 2-3: “Portuguese as a Heritage Language Workshop: O ABC do Português: Oficina de treinamento e capacitação de professores de Português Língua de Herança”
The two day workshop is designed to bring specialists and practitioners in second-language acquisition to campus in order to discuss and facilitate language instruction for children of Lusophone immigrants in the Washington D.C. area as well from other parts of the United States. The objectives are to strengthen the Lusophone immigrant community and connect it to the University, and to further research interest in language and cultural acquisition among “heritage speakers” or second-generation immigrants. The workshop will be led by professors, Prof. Maria José Grosso/U of Lisboa and Prof. José Carlos Paes de Almeida, U of Brasília. For more information, contact: Prof. Vivaldo Santos (email@example.com).
