France ranked 'worst in EU' at learning English
The report noted that France, as well as neighbouring Spain and Italy were behind European averages. However, while Spain and Italy were on the up, France remained stubbornly stuck, well behind the likes of Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands.
"In fact, France is so far behind its neighbours that its English proficiency levels are akin to those of countries on the eastern edges of Europe," the company noted.
"Whether due to a cultural aversion to English or an inability to reform its education system, France is on a different trajectory from its neighbours."
