The proposal was announced last week and has divided opinion, with many feeling that the move risked demoting the Maltese lan- guage to a secondary language. Bartolo stressed however, that there had been many inaccuracies in the way the story was reported, and insisted that the course would be intended for people who were not born in Malta. "It's in the name," said Bartolo. "Maltese as a foreign language will be taught to people who were not born in Malta." • Foreign students to be taught Maltese at primary school level • Education Minister says it makes sense to oblige foreigners living in Malta to learn Maltese
