HUNDREDS OF PANAMANIAN STUDENTS and teachers could soon be enrolled at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill campus seeking to improve their language skills.
President of the Republic of Panama, Juan Carlos Varela, gave overwhelming endorsement to the university’s English as a Second Language (ESL) programme.
