Beyond language proficiency: Teaching and learning English in times of inequity in Chile
The latest results of the national test in English language achievement show, once again, a slow increase in the number of students who are proficient in this second language. Even more concerning is the sustained disparity in linguistic achievement between wealthy and working class students, revealing that the context of ELT in Chile is marked by contentious socioeconomic inequity. In view of this scenario, we invite the ELT community (pre and in-service teachers of English as well as academics) to share their voices and be part of this important discussion.
