Nuestro idioma, nuestra herencia: Español para hispanohablantes is a Spanish for Heritage Speakers textbook. It has been especially crafted for students in the United States who grew up speaking or hearing Spanish at home or in their community and who, for the most part, are proficient at understanding and speaking Spanish, but need to further develop their reading and writing skills. As such, the ultimate goal of Nuestro idioma, nuestra herencia is to refine students’ Spanish language skills so that they develop the confidence to use them in any context—academic, professional, or personal.
