Polish students are among those who most study foreign languages

Polish schoolchildren are among those who most study foreign languages at school in comparison to other European Union countries. In 2014, 97.7 % of them were learning at least one non-native language.

Polish schoolchildren are among those who most study foreign languages at school in comparison to other European Union (EU) countries, a recent study by the EU statistics office Eurostat reveals. In 2014, 97.7% of Polish primary schoolchildren were learning at least one non-native language, a percentage that is higher than the European average of 83.7%.

In countries such as Cyprus, Luxembourg, Malta, Croatia, Italy and Austria, the percentage was similarly high. English was the most-spoken foreign language in Poland (94.8 %) ahead of German at 6.2%. Another of the study’s most significant findings was that over 80% of primary schoolchildren across the entire EU were studying at least one foreign language during the year in question. Only 5% were studying two or more. Once again, English was the most popular; some 17 million primary schoolchildren across Europe were studying this language.
