second community languages

I have the following question:

My husbands mother tounge - danish - is on the list of second community languages, but it seems that one can only get 5 points if one has a university degree in that language?

Is this so? Even though he is fluent and has a civil engeering education in danish and a Ph.D degree from a danish university as well?

Thank you

'Fluent' means you have professional level language skills (written or oral) as evidenced by a qualification (of equivalent standard to an Australian degree) gained from a university where instruction was in one of the listed languages
means in this instance Marianne is that if Danish was the language used for your husbands University Course, then he is eligible for 5 points.

It does not mean he has had to actually do a University Course to study Danish.

Ok, well that's great - thank you. He only has 120 points for the 175, and this might perhaps even be 115, so 5 points are more than welcome!
