This paper discusses the high school teachers’ needs of training in the framework of the National English Program in Basic Education (NEPBE). This study aimed to evaluate perceptions of English teachers, in order to describe the social context—culture in the framework of the implementation of the programme. The methodology used was a non-experimental study of transverse type and evaluative character. The sample consisted of 35 professors who carried out the pilot study of the NEPBE in secondary general in the State of Mexico. The instruments used were a questionnaire and an evaluation scale of Likert-type whose application was done in December 2012. Among the main conclusions obtained, it was found that teachers need to identify the subject curriculum standards, they need to own an educational update in the creation of conducive learning environments for English language teaching, and also it was perceived with difficulties in students learning of English as a second language due to the lack of materials and infrastructure.
