EMI in Latin America

Aliaga Salas, Loreto and Perez, Gonzalo (2023) EMI in Latin America. In: The Practice of English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) Around the World. Second Language Learning and Teaching (SLLT) . Springer, Cham, Switzerland, pp. 133-152. ISBN 9783031306136


This study explores the emerging implementation of EMI in Latin America from the perspectives of both teachers and students (Aliaga Salas & Andrade, 2023). Although Latin American EMI is recent and limited, there is evidence of a growing interest in implementing this approach in these countries. Through open-ended questionnaires, participants report on their experiences in EMI courses, their opportunities and challenges, and how they address potential difficulties. While both groups regard EMI as an approach that boosts opportunities for mobility and collaboration, its implementation may be negatively affected by students’ low English proficiency. The authors also conclude that further support for teacher education is needed.
