Cuban Universities Pressing Students to Learn English and Learn it Well

Havana, February 10 (RHC-Granma)-- As part of a policy that seeks to upgrade the general level of higher education, Cuban universities are demanding that students show a command of the English language, a requirement that they have turned compulsory for  graduation.

In that pursuit, the Ministry of Higher Education  is currently working in conjunction with the British Council in Cuba, in the development of a program for the training of teachers of English.

About a thousand teachers from Cuban universities have already participated in English Language training courses and in workshops.

The Cuban Ministry of Higher Education considers knowledge of English to be essential for graduates to be able to perform well, and has said that relations with the British Council can positively contribute to that aim.
