Most school students are interested in English as a second language, said Education Minister Ali Asghar Fani on Monday. “Although the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution finalized a decision to add more foreign languages to school curriculums, a recent survey shows that over 98% of students are interested in taking up English,” he said, the Persian language daily ‘Sharq’ reported. The council decided last Wednesday to add German, Italian, Russian, and French to school curricula that already have mandatory English and Arabic. Studies show only 1.5% of students are eager to learn a language other than English, Fani said.
