English Proficiency Index: 2012 Edition

EF (aka English First language schools) has just released its second ‘English Proficiency Index’. Based on a global online survey, the index ranks countries all over the world in terms of how well their citizens speak English. No surprises in the top tier – Scandinavia dominates the highest level; however, the rest of the list holds some interesting, and sometimes unexpected results. Read a good summary of the index here in Johnson  (the Economist’s language blog), and read EF’s entire report here.
