Scottish parents would prefer their children to learn Chinese over Spanish, French or German.
Results of a new report show that 27 per cent of mums, dads and guardians in Scotland are in favour of opting for the Chinese language for future prospects.
The survey was conducted by Modular Classrooms, who were keen to find out what language is being considered most important when making education choices.
A statement reads: "As the world expands, and with it international career opportunities, it’s clear that learning a second, or third language is increasingly important for our future generations."
The data also revealed that 30 per cent of people across the UK overall would choose Chinese over other languages, but Spanish was more popular on the whole, with 36 per cent of parents across the UK backing this option.
