dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis was to examine the learning needs of Carthage College heritage speakers of Spanish in order to evaluate the merits of possible changes in Carthage's approach to Spanish language instruction for heritage speakers of Spanish. The study relied on qualitative methods to collect and analyze data. Interviews were conducted with thirteen heritage speakers of Spanish currently enrolled at Carthage to gather information about their experience in Spanish classes, their use of the language in daily life and their perceptions of their own learning needs. Information obtained from these interviews, as well as a review of the extensive published literature on this subject, lead to recommendations for changes in the placement examination administered to new students, and for the creation of a course specifically designed for heritage speakers of Spanish.en_US
