Title: English Language Learning in Latin America
Author: Kathryn Cronquist and Ariel Fiszbein
Summary: English language learning has become an important strategic issue across the Latin American region. Countries have developed national strategies, created programs and made important investments to expand access to English learning opportunities. This report provides an overview of the state of English language learning in ten countries in Latin America, with a particular focus on assessing the policies in place and identifying key bottlenecks affecting the opportunities for high-quality programs. The Inter-American Dialogue and the authors see this report as a contribution to a much-needed debate across the region on how to improve the quality of English language learning.
