The 3-part webinar series on heritage speakers and learners of Russian led by distinguished scholars and by language instructors experienced in teaching heritage students (or instead of "distinguished and experienced", just simply state the names?). Each part will focus on some aspect of heritage language linguistics and pedagogy. The second and third webinars will be building on the information covered in the previous sessions. You can register for only for one webinar, but we strongly recommend registering for all three parts of the series.
