Abstract
US policy makers and educators have tended to view immigrant languages as a "problem" rather than recognize these languages as "resources." This video illustrates the theories, procedures, and experiences of participants involved in a foreign language learning project which paired high school tutors with university foreign language students. The project was designed to (1) acknowledge the L1 resources of high school immigrant students, (2) develop L2 proficiency among university students through providing opportunities to engage in authentic conversation, and (3) promote bilingualism among both immigrants and monolingual English speakers
