Hungarian Government’s Foreign Language Decision

From Politics.Hu, November 6, 2012:

The education state secretariat plans to make German the main foreign language to be taught in schools, rather than English, news website Origo reports.

“From the point of view of language pedagogy it is proposed that pupils first encounter the German language, which has a more complex grammar structure than English.” according to the strategy.

The strategy would require pupils to take German-language exams every other year and could only sit higher entrance examinations from 2017 after passing language tests.
