We begin with reaction from the Arab world to Barack Obama's embrace of a language of "respect" toward Muslims. Then, we accompany a group of Upper Midwest dairy farmers on a trip to Mexico, where they learn the languages and culture - and meet the families of their Mexican employees. After that, we take a tour of Latin America's many Spanish dialects with actor Benicio del Toro ("Che"). And finally we consider one of John Updike's lesser-known books, "The Coup." It's set in a fictional West African state that is obsessed with French language and culture. <img id="pri-insights" src="http://api.pri.org/insights/?story=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pri.org%2Fstories%2F... />
