‘We want to plant the seed for the first bilingual generation in Colombia,’ Medellin secretary of education Luis Guillermo Patiño explained. The programme will deliver English language lessons and native-speaker teachers to provide Colombian children in state schools with a similar education to those in private schools. ‘The possibility of educating our children as if they were in private institutions means equity for us,’ said Guillermo Patiño. If successful, the project could expand across the rest of the country.
