Cypriots top French learners

Cypriot gymnasium pupils top the EU list of countries when it comes to learning French, according to a newly released Eurostat report.

Whereas on average 33.7 per cent of EU secondary school pupils studied French in 2014, in Cyprus the number was 88.1 per cent. Second on the list is Romania (84.9 per cent) and Italy is a more distant third at 67.7 per cent.

Close to 100 per cent of students are taught English nearly everywhere, and Cyprus is no exception.

However, only 60 per cent of EU pupils studied a second foreign language in 2014. In Cyprus the number is much higher than the average, 88.9 per cent. Only in Luxembourg all children learn more than one language at school.
