Last April, RTP (the Portuguese national broadcaster) sent a team to cover the heritage language symposium that I organized with the financial support of the FASS Internationalization Fund. The event was a joint initiative between Lancaster University and PARSUK, the association of Portuguese scientists and students based in the UK. It brought to Lancaster policy makers, leading researchers, parents and educators in order to discuss challenges and opportunities associated with heritage language education. We were particularly pleased to welcome the Portuguese Secretary of State for Education (Professor João Costa) as our distinguished keynote speaker.
