Polish should be taught in British schools, the country’s PM tells Theresa May during Brexit talks

The Daily Mail is reporting that Polish should be taught in Britain’s schools, the country’s Prime Minister declared yesterday.

Beata Szydlo used a televised Downing Street press conference to make the surprise request of her counterpart Theresa May.

She spoke of ‘the option of teaching Polish as a language in British schools’ after the topic was also raised in a meeting of senior politicians from the two countries.

The suggestion comes as Downing Street is keen to make an ally of the Polish leader in advance of Brexit talks formally opening.

Almost 700,000 pupils in Britain – one in 15 nationally – have a parent who is a citizen of another European country. The number has more than doubled since 2007.

Of those school-aged children who arrive in Britain from EU countries, the highest number come from Poland, followed by Germany and Lithuania.
