Costa Rica plans a Nearshore English-language evolution

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Known for its strong capabilities in most Nearshore services, Costa Rica has become a reputable player in the industry, attracting plenty of foreign competition on the ground.

Even so, Costa Rica has been ranked at number 38 on the EF English Proficiency Index 2016, placing it almost dead-center of the global leaderboards, despite being five spots higher than in 2015.

But the Ministry of Public Education is aiming to graduate more than 1 million bilingual students every year, with expectations of sixth graders achieving an A1 level, and secondary school students to hit B1 or B2.
