Our Serbian friends PRODIREKT and their language network Verbalisti recently announced the results of the poll designed to discover how parents in the Balkans feel about the language education of their children.
The visitors of the Verbalisti Facebook page were asked “How important is it for your children to learn a foreign language in the native speaking country?” The survey was conducted in four countries – Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina – during two time intervals: from 21st November to 21st December 2011, and from January 6 to February 6, 2012. It generated enormous interest among Verbalisti’s Facebook fans as well as among other other Facebook members in the region. The poll reached 247,757 people, with 1,566 participants casting their vote. Of these, 1,226 said that they would send their children to learn a foreign language in a native-speaking country, regardless of family budget constraints.
