Chinese Rising

Swedish Students Prefer Spanish as Extra Language

Swedish school authorities maintain that there is a growing interest among some school youngsters in this Nordic nation in learning extra foreign languages – beyond the obligatory English  - - and that Spanish remains at the top of the list.

Although a smaller number choose German and French, more and more are selecting Chinese – when it’s offered at their school.

But some teachers frown that many students ignore all other languages – confident that English is sufficient – and others give up after only a few years of struggling with that foreign vocabulary.
