Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - A pilot test at two Hessian schools for Turkish lessons in the current school year has so far met with little interest. Only one school in Kassel offered a course for Turkish as a second foreign language, a spokesman for the Ministry of Education said on Friday in Wiesbaden. There are seven participants. At the second pilot school in Lollar in central Hesse, too few students registered with only two interested parties. The newspapers of the VRM had previously reported about it.
According to the Ministry of Education, students can currently choose the following foreign languages: English (1st/2nd foreign language), French, Latin, Spanish (1st/2nd/3rd), Italian, Russian, Chinese, Polish (2nd ./3.), Ancient Greek (3.). From the 2023/2024 school year onwards, Portuguese and Arabic are to be added to the range of subjects in the second and third foreign languages.
