English in Europe
The English language is widely spoken in almost all of Europe, but mainly in UK and Ireland where English is the official language. In other European regions, English is spoken mainly by those who have learned it as a second language. Currently it is calculates that at least 13% of EU citizens speak English as mother language and 38% have English as a second language.
The study found that English is the first foreign language studied in secondary schools in every country outside Britain and Ireland, after English, European citizens choose to learn Germany, Russian and French. So, English is far ahead of any other as the first choice as a foreign language in Europe.
