Why heritage language education?

Parents want their children to be able to connect with other children and extended family members who speak the same home language, to learn to read and write in the home language, and to understand the traditions of the home culture. A strong basis in the home language leads to greater social and academic success overall for multilingual children.


Having the opportunity to study one's home language is considered a universal right by UNESCO. The 1960 Convention against Discrimination in Education states in Article 5 that “the members of national minorities [have the right] to carry on their own educational activities, including… the use or the teaching of their own language" provided that the students are not hindered from integrating into the local community. This means that multilingual children have the right to celebrate and understand their heritage language while at the same time integrating into the Dutch society.
