Test shows region’s English-language proficiency to be low-level
Education First’s English Proficiency Index, says Costa Rica and El Salvador have not been able to raise their level of proficiency in the last five years, while Panama and Guatemala, which in 2014 and 2015 did improve their performance, fell in 2016 to the “very low” level.
