Update on Chile's English Opens Doors Program: The Chilean Ministry of Education began its English Opens Doors program in 2003 to improve and foster the teaching and learning of English in Chile. This year, the Ministry launched a new, innovative initiative to improve the early training of future EFL teachers. It involves government-funded scholarships and tuition-waiver agreements between 24 participating Chilean universities and their foreign partners in English-speaking countries. More than 30 EFL Teaching degree-seeking Chilean students were granted the Semester Abroad scholarship and are currently studying at institutions in the USA, UK and Canada. Several hundred candidates for this scholarship will be applying for 2007. To learn more about how your campus can participate in Chile's nationwide campaign for bilingualism, please contact Carmen Oria at or phone 56-2-487-5083 / 5079. More information (in Spanish) is also available at (Programa Semestre en el Extranjero, Medida Presidencial 26).
