One of the less extravagant election promises was made by opposition leader Mariano Rajoy last week. If elected in the March general election, he has vowed that all Spanish schoolchildren will be speaking English fluently within ten years. He also said it would be compulsory to teach all subjects in Spanish in all schools in the country. Currently, many schools in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands are teaching most subjects in Catalan, treating Spanish as a foreign language.
