Ancient Greek in British Schools
The Ancient Greek language
will be included in England’s state primary school curriculum
as one of the foreign languages pupils can opt for.
In an overhaul of the country’s national education system, learning a foreign language will be compulsory from the age of seven in England’s primary schools.
The plans will be put out to public consultation later in the year, ahead of a scheduled introduction in 2014.
Shadow education secretary Stephen Twigg
welcomed the government’s ideas
saying, "I think it’s absolutely right. Children will get a love of languages if they start them young."
