    Interesting that the United States and Canada aren’t proficient (don’t rate) in English. That I might believe.

    That England, Australia and New Zealand don’t rate either (the same as deepest Africa) I find hard to grasp. Looks like a wonky made up chart of no real value.

      You may find that naturally English speaking countries or countries that have not data available are not included

        Would have been more useful to have natural English speakers, and no data different colours though…

    Had to chuckle over France. Obviously they believe that everyone else should learn French.

    I would have thought Chile has a higher proficiency than ‘low’. English is compulsory all the way through school, like Germany, and there are a few TV stations that broadcast English language programmes with Spanish subtitles. I found that most people in Santiago and Puerto Varas in the south spoke some English and the level of proficiency seemed similar to the places I visited in Argentina.
