Arabic Heritage Language: Examining the Attitudinal & Motivational Factors Impacting Parental Choice

Today we live in a dynamic society and where the flow of information and messages is constant and changing, for that reason in the academic and linguistic field we cannot stay in the saga of all these ways of communicating. I just perceive that learning a language should be attractive to students through the methodology of the teacher, where it captures the ways of communicating between interlocutors (interpersonal and digitally speaking)
In this sense I propose interculturality as an approach in addition to a productive and contemporary method to learn a language, using academic tasks, or at least awaken in students a growing motivation.
