The EF English Proficiency Index (EF EPI) was created in 2011 in this context as a standardized measurement of adult English proficiency, comparable between countries and over time. It is the first index that compares the average English language ability of adults in different countries.

This second edition of the index uses a unique set of data gathered from 1.7 million adults using free English tests over a period of 3 years, from 2009 to 2011. For the first time it includes data about English proficiency variation between men and women, adults of different ages, employees in different industries and job levels, and adult immigrants in English-speaking countries. The data is presented in this EF EPI report, a series of country fact sheets, and a separate EF EPI for Companies report (EF EPIc), which can all be downloaded from the following website: www.ef.com/epi

The EF English Proficiency Index calculates a country’s average adult English skill level using data from three different EF English tests completed by hundreds of thousands of adults every year.


Over the years to come, we hope that the EF EPI will provide a uniquely standardized comparison of English proficiency that is useful for citizens and governments alike when trying to evaluate the effectiveness of their language policies over time.
