In this Sept. 9, 2013 photo, University of Miami student Gabriel Dias studies the daily lesson plan on his computer during a Spanish language class in Coral Gables, Fla. Learning a foreign language in college is a requisite for many students, but what if you grew up speaking that language, you just can�t read it or write it? That�s the case for many second-generation immigrant children. Over the last two decades, a growing number of schools have introduced foreign language classes for "heritage learners," students whose parents may have spoken a language like Spanish at home, but who were formally educated in English.
