Radikale want Arabic taught in schools
If it were up to government coalition party Radikale, public school students in Copenhagen would be offered the opportunity to learn Arabic for free during school hours, as they are today with French and German.
Tommy Petersen, a City Council board member and the spokesperson for children and youth issues for Radikale, said that it didn't make sense that Arabic isn't among the languages offered in public schools.
"Arabic is one of the most spoken languages in the world," Petersen told Berlingske newspaper. "Some 280 million Arabs are practically neighbours to Europe, and Arabic is the most spoken immigrant language in Denmark."
