Online Resources: Frequently Asked Questions
What resources are available for teaching Spanish to Spanish speakers?
In response to the need for appropriate instruction for students with Hispanic language and cultural backgrounds, "Spanish for Spanish Speakers" courses are becoming more common in K–12 and university education. Conferences and summer institutes for teachers are also becoming more prevalent. A Special Interest Group on Spanish for Native Speakers has been formed within ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages). This group is concerned with the teaching and learning of Spanish by individuals who have a home background in the language. Curricula have also been developed especially for these students.
