Georgia intends to cease issuing diplomas to persons who do not know English. This was announced by Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili on Thursday in Batumi, the Vesti reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"Anyway we will soon introduce a rule - without knowledge of English language the graduates would not be able to get a diploma", he said, speaking at the international medical conference in Batumi.
"It's very good to know the Russian language, but in today's world virtually the entire flow of information is in English, so this rule should be mandatory", Mikheil Saakashvili said.
As recalled by the ITAR-TASS, on President's initiative, almost two years ago, teaching English in schools starting from the first class became mandatory. More than three thousand teachers, volunteers from the United States, Canada, Australia and Great Britain, who were assigned to almost all Georgian schools to teach children English, arrived in the country.
