Greenland to replace Danish for English as first foreign language

Last Updated: 11 Jun 2018

The new Greenlandic government agreed to replace Danish by English as the first foreign language in schools. This can be read in the 'Koalitionsaftale 2018 (2018-2022)'. Although Greenlandic became Greenland’s sole official language in 2009, Danish remained essential in the educational sector.

The Danish government is now worried and recalls that knowledge of the Danish language can help students benefit from educational opportunities in Denmark.
