Mission Statement

The Spanish Heritage Language (SHL) Program is an initiative of the Department of Modern Languages to meet the needs and interests of Spanish heritage language learners at FIU. This program is specifically designed for Spanish heritage language learners - students who have a personal, familial, and/or communal connection to Spanish. We want to build on Spanish heritage language learners’ proficiency and expand their skills, explore topics related to their cultural background, and engage students in collaborative learning both inside and outside of the class.
