Support bilingual education

What about bilingualism in Latinamerica? Are there any programs that promote bilingualism, biliterate, bicognitive, and multiculturalism development? What are the most effective immersion programs in closing the achievement gap and promoting bilingualism? According to Baker (2006), the concepts students learned in L1 can be transferred to L2; so to what extend L1 system is well achieved to support the Interlanguage process? I think, the best way of supporting bilingualism in our communities is, firstly, supporting and evaluting the teaching and learning process in primary schools when children learn their L1.
