Bilingual in Chile: An Impossible Dream? Bilingual in Chile: An Impossible Dream? [Kindle Edition] Book Description Publication Date: October 30, 2012 “This book is dedicated to all the teachers in Chile, and the entire world, who believe that English can be learned to a high level. The most successful English learners begin from an early age, regardless of whether we are looking at Canada, Singapore, or Chile.

Yes, in Chile, we have bilingual students.

They became bilingual without sacrificing the mother tongue, or the Chilean culture, or the heritage that identifies them as members of a particular linguistic community.

In the case of this book, I refer to the special nature of being Chilean, and speaking English.

It is not a dream, bilingualism in Chile, it is reality, but only for a few. “English for Everyone” is a task the teachers, parents, students, and the nation of Chile must get serious about.

We need to study our own Chilean experience, and replicate our success in the private sector in the public sector.

This book, again, is dedicated to every teacher in the world who is involved in this noble endeavour. May God Bless You All.
