The demand for English lessons in Spain has remained stable during the recession, and some language schools experienced rampant growth in the 2011-2012 school year.
I have been talking with my students about what they think the future is for English in Spain, and their responses have been very optimistic. Most of them think that English will continue to become more and more important in schools; both public and private.
They also told me that there are stricter requirements for getting a job and being proficient in English is essential for the new generation of university graduates.
Some of my students take the majority of their classes in English, including science, math, and history. Others are taking extra private lessons and a small group is going to summer immersion programs in Canada and Australia.
