I mean regular school: primary, secondary, high school, cause I know that universities and private language schools offer nearly every language.

Here in Poland the most popular languages are (as follows by popularity):
1.English 2. German 3. Russian 4.French 5.Spanish 6.Italian

Recently I heard something about introducing Chineese in some schools.

And how is it in your countries?

Here in Taiwan, we only learn English in elementary school and junior high school :(
When we enter senior high, there are Japanese(which is the most popular one), French, German, Spanish and Latin.
But I'd rather call it a extra class than a complete course, 'cause we have only a lesson per week. And it's only for students who choose the classes. If you're not interested in languages, you could go to other classes such as mathematics, astronomy, intimate relationship(never know what is that xD), religious class and so on. (that's my school, though, i'm not sure how the other schools work :) )

Polish (I come from Poland :)), English (everybody and at many levels) and we can choose between French and German. I chose French because my teacher is very crazy and clever person, so for me spending time with her and at her lessons is a pleasure :)

Here in Italy, in primary school we study English.
Then, you can usually choose between French, German and Spanish, it depends on the school. If you go to a secondary school specializing in modern languages, you can study two or three foreign languages. :)
