Message 2: The BILINGUAL List

Date: Tue, 30 Apr 1996 23:02:49 +0800
From: Peter GU Dept of Education HKU <H9290037hkucc.hku.hk>
Subject: The BILINGUAL List

 BILINGUAL:
 An unmoderated electronic forum
 on bilingual education and language planning

BILINGUAL was set up in March 1996 at the Hong Kong Institute
of Education. It aims to provide researchers, teachers, and
policy makers with an open forum to address issues pertinent
to bilingual education and language planning in Hong Kong and
around the world.

Hong Kong is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating places for
linguists. Language education in Hong Kong is presently not just
a hot intellectual issue, it is also a serious practical concern
for every educator. We hope that this open forum would help
researchers, teachers, and policy makers on both theoretical and
practical fronts. We welcome suggestions from colleagues around
the world who share our concerns over the Hong Kong situation.
And of course, ideas and experiences in language planning and
bilingual education from other parts of the world will be more
than welcome as well.

To subscribe to BILINGUAL, send an email message to
 majordomoied.edu.hk
and leave the subject line blank. In the body of your text, put

Message 3: Quechua language

Date: Wed, 01 May 1996 12:34:27 -0000
From: Sabine Dedenbach <dedenbacplatz0.voelk.uni-bonn.de>
Subject: Quechua language
Hello!
This is an addition to my mail about the Quechua language.
With respect to what we were told at our Quechua anniversary meeting 
in Bonn about the plan to forbid the Quechua language in Peru I have 
just had a reliable message from a colleague in Cuzco who says that 
the following happened: Some people in Cuzco presented a project for a 
law that would have made the teaching of Quechua obligatory in the 
whole of Peru. This project was not supported by Parliament. On the 
other hand, this year a programme for training teachers in intercultural
bilingual education has been initiated on the national level. 
- So, things have turned out not as bad as one might have feared.
