    I hope someone can help! I have my EU Law assignment which is a problem scenario.

    I have no idea how to go about it as EU is not my strong point at all! Getting really stressed!

    Below is the question:

    (Imaginary) Directive 2017/124 requires member states to provide that children of citizens of the EU, who work in a member state other than that of which they are nationals, receive free language lessons in the language of the host member state. The tuition is to be provided within the state educational system. The UK does noting to implement the directive because it believes that th national curriculum, as laid down by statute within the UK, is more than sufficient to encompass the requirements of the directive.

    Gunilla is a single parent from Sweden who moves to the UK in order to take up a position as publicity officer for a north London premier league football club. Her daughter who is eleven is enrolled at a school which has recently opted out of the control of the local education authority to become an academy. Gunilla feels that her daughter's English is not sufficiently developed and fears it will have a detrimental effect upon her education. She approaches the school, which agrees to provide extra English lessons for her daughter at a cost of £25 per hour.

    In September 2017 in article 258 TFEU (169) EC proceedings, the court of justice ruled that the UK were in violation of the treaties in failing to implement the (imaginary) directive.

    Having learnt of the existence of (imaginary) directive, Gunilla seeks your assistance as to how the EU law might assist her.

    SO that's what I have and i am not sure howto structure my answer?
