An endangered language is one that has a dwindling number of speakers. Languages are endangered when their use is replaced by the majority language of a region or when they are no longer being learned by new generations of children or adult speakers.  One method for preventing language extinction is the teaching of heritage languages in school using relevant accessible resources. Preventing language extinction is something we are capable of preventing and responsible for in order to encourage relationships and friendships particularly in Early Years Education.
