Message 1: Language Policies in Latin America

Subject: Language Policies in Latin America

I'm writing to ask for some assistance with my research on language
policies in Latin American countries.

As an International Studies student, I am required to create a research
design on language policy in any two Latin American. countries . This
is for a Political Science class, so the focus of the research design is
to be on governmental policy related to language education and/or
language usage.
My question is: Why do the policies in *these* two countries differ as
they do? The problem is that I know shameful little about the SLA
situation in ANY Latin American country, and nothing about the policies
in place. I need some help with finding that information.

If anyone can point me to some resources on Latin American language
policies (written in English), I would be most appreciative.

Thank you much for your help,

Dear colleagues,

we are looking for acoustic cues for hearing assessment in profoundly deaf
infants (6-18 months).

Thanks for any suggestions,
