Second Hebrew Language Literature Review Explores How Language Learning Influences Identity, Relationships with Community
CASJE (the Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education) today released the second of three literature reviews that explores what recent research about heritage, second and foreign language learning means for the teaching and learning of Hebrew. The newest review, Contributions of Second/Foreign Language Learning Scholarship to Identity Development and Hebrew Education, looks closely at how second/foreign language acquisition relates to learners’ identity development and their relationships with various cultures, groups and communities. New research focused specifically on Hebrew learning would help Jewish educators understand how their learners both relate to and are influenced by Hebrew.

CASJE (the Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education) today released the first of three literature reviews that explores what recent research about heritage, second and foreign language learning means for the teaching and learning of Hebrew. This first review in the series, Implications of Heritage Language Research for Hebrew Teaching and Learning, shows the many personal and external factors that influence this learning—and demonstrate that Jewish educators would be helped by more significant research on the subject. “Heritage language” refers to a language other than the dominant language that is familiar, not foreign, to the user. Feuer’s review focuses on the majority of young Hebrew language learners who are ethnically Jewish but who do not speak Hebrew at home as their primary language. She also notes that while Hebrew is not strictly-speaking a heritage language for most users in North America, there is still merit in mining research in this field.
