OLIVEIRA, Gabriela Camargo de. The second generation of Latin-Americans in the city of São Paulo and the issue of language. REMHU, Rev. Interdiscip. Mobil. Hum. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.42, pp.213-230. ISSN 1980-8585.

Although São Paulo receives immigrants hailing from all over the world, we are able to observe an increase in arrivals of Latin-Americans, especially Bolivians, Paraguyans, and Peruvians, principally after the 1970s. Latin-American immigrants have constructed their lives in the city, establishing homes and forming families. Their children face the issue of being a part of the second generation, which can be defined as the collection of individuals born after the initial arrival of their parents into Brazil. Comprehending how the second generation has established itself in São Paulo through relationships maintained with local communities is fundamental to understanding the effects of immigration on society. Therefore, the study strives to explain the life and experiences of second generation Latin-Americans in São Paulo, highlighting the issue of language.

Keywords : second generation; international migration; language.
