THOUSANDS of primary and secondary school students in the Balearics are going to be taught a number of subjects in English this academic year as part of the regional government's Third Language Plan.

The initiative has been experimented with in a number of schools over the past 12 months and the government and Ministry for Education have decided to implement the new policy in a total of 101 education centres this new school year.

In total, 9'600 students will be learning subjects such as religious studies, music and, in some cases, geography in English as part of the government's intention to not only increase the number of pupils learning a foreign language but also improve their knowledge of how to use the language they are studying in a more practical and useful manor.
