In July 2017 Mexico announced ambitious plans to turn the country bilingual. Cambridge Assessment English is helping synthesise and implement the plan, which involves the near-40 million children at school in Mexico and its near-two million teachers.

Speaking at the annual Association of Latin American British Cultural Institutes conference, Cambridge English’s Chief Executive said: “Finding a way to upskill teachers who will in turn upskill students is going to require imagination and commitment and I could certainly feel both of those at meetings we have had with several wings of the Mexican government. I am really excited we’re part of the project.”
