The new school year starting on September 2 comes with a big change in the teaching of foreign languages in primary schools.
Under the new rules, it will be possible to choose which foreign language will be taught as first in the third grade. If they do not choose English, they will have to choose the language between seventh and ninth grades as their second language, the SITA newswire reported.
The schools should enable pupils to speak English and at least one more foreign language and know how to use them, as stems from the School Act. The second language should be taught at least two lessons a week.
