The Junta de Andalucia’s Education Department announced last week that 80 new bilingual centres will come into operation across the region this coming academic year. In Malaga province, 16 primary and secondary schools will take part in the new bilingual education scheme, the so-called Plurilinguistic Development Plan, which will benefit some 40,000 students. Another 115 bilingual centres will join the plan the following academic year. English has been chosen by 70 of the centres, but seven have opted for French and three for German.
