It is well-known that there are very prestigious private schools in this country (here they are called public schools) like Eton or Harrow. Students stay in education until they are16 years old (like in Spain) but the government has planned one more year in the near future, so they will finish at 17.
English students learn foreign languages when they are in Secondary Education and the most popular ones are Spanish, French and German. However, they are not very good at languages; after all they speak the most international language in the world!!
English universities are also very famous around the world and many foreign students come to study here as part of their preparation. Apart from Oxford University, Cambridge is another important centre of university life and education.
Here there are also some problems of discipline of course but as much as 80% of school leavers keep on studying and just about 8% do nothing. This is a very good percentage!!
