The Heritage Language Consortium, is a strategic partnership between Lancaster University, the University of Lisbon, the University of Minho, NOVA University Lisbon, the University of Porto, Tübingen University, and Camões: Instituto da Cooperação e da Língua, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The objective of the Consortium is to promote research on language learning in a variety of settings (from naturalistic development to classroom-based instruction) and across different age groups (children, adolescents and adults). The focus of our research will be on the acquisition of Portuguese in multilingual settings, though the insights gained from Consortium projects will be applicable to other languages.
