Bulgarians Not Keen on Learning Foreign Languages - SurveyBulgarians Not Keen on Learning Foreign Languages - Survey
Bulgarians and Swedes are the least enthusiastic about learning a second foreign language across the EU, an Italian foundation survey shows.
Only 27% of their population is interested in speaking and learning more than one foreign language, says the foundation, part of the Polytechnic Institute in Milan.
As a whole, the number of EU residents speaking at least one foreign language raised by 11% from the previous survey conducted by the foundation in 2001 to reach 56% in 2006.
The survey's results come as a surprise as Bulgarian children have classes in two foreign languages even in primary school.
