BILINGUALISM, LANGUAGES OF HERITAGE AND EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE: TO MAKE KNOWN THE PROBLEM RELATED TO HERITAGE
According to Flory & Souza (2009), studies show that there is no universally accepted definition for bilingualism and for this reason; it makes sense to investigate this phenomenon in relation to its social, cultural, linguistic and cognitive consequences. Garcia (2009) understands bilingualism as a complex linguistic, psychological and sociocultural behavior, and that has multidimensional aspects because it involves different areas of human life (social, cultural, family, identity, linguistic, emotional). Thus, our goal is to discuss bilingualism as a complex phenomenon in which various elements interact and, as such, can be observed and analyzed from different perspectives. It is also our intention to establish your relationship with the languages of heritage
Key works: Bilingualism. Heritage language: Identity
