Popular foreign languages in ukWatch
Is the Italian language very popular or not? Is it often part of the National curriculum? Thank you very much for your kind help. I hope I will receive many replies and as many possible details you can give me about this toopic please. Best wishes Francesca
I cant help much but I think the main three languages people learn at secondary school are French, German and sometimes Spanish. I think most people have a GCSE in French or German, sometimes both. Italian doesnt seem to crop up that much although I'm sure I would have prefered doing that to German. Hope that helps a bit. Sorry its not a lot but thats all I know. Also, I dont think there is a specific order that they are studied in. It normally just depends on the school you go to. Have you looked the Government website, www.statistics.gov.uk, it might help you find some useful stats on the languages learnt. www.open.gov.uk - this website might be useful as well. Hope that helps a bit.
