The working life of the digital age requires extended language skills. The continual integration of the EU Single Market is boosting these demands from the business world. To meet these demands the Danish Government now is launching a new strategy to improve multi-language skills besides English on all educational levels. Besides boosting language skills the purpose with the new strategy is to improve understanding of other cultures and our common European history. Søren Pind, Minister of Education and Research, comments in the following way: “We are living in a global age, where the big European languages are important for our trade and culture. Therefore we take the demands from business seriously when they call for employees with multi-language skills.” The strategy includes funding of €10 million to a new national centre for foreign languages and assigning the municipalities to implement the strategy in the educational system on the local level, and improving education for language teachers etc. Source: Ministry of Education in Denmark
