Each year, EF Education First releases the EF English Proficiency Index, the world's first and largest ranking of English skills by country. We looked at assessment tests from 5 million language learners from 60 countries and territories over the past 6 years to see who is getting ahead, who is falling behind, which teaching methods are proving most effective, and what are the economic correlations associated with "good English." Our analysis revealed a number of compelling findings - including a clear link between English proficiency and key economic indicators like Gross National Income (GNI), Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and the Human Development Index (HDI). But it also revealed several more lighthearted observations, which we used to create this quiz.
So check it out and test your knowledge of how people are learning English around the world. The answers may surprise you.
