Bilingual Programmes in Schools

More schools to go bilingual in Murcia - thanks to Euroweekly News for this latest report

THE Murcia Region is starting the new school year with 31 schools joining the bilingual education programme, through the initiative promoted by the Regional Government.

The programme includes alternating classes in primary schools being taught in Spanish and English and the number of centres following the initiative is growing, with 254 schools offering bilingual education to over 35,000 students. The Regional Government hopes to have the bilingual model in place in all schools by 2020.

General Director of Educational Innovation and Attention to Diversity, Ana Millan, said: “From this course, the bilingual programme allows greater autonomy to schools when carrying out their implementation, as they can decide both the number of areas taught in English, as well as the number of hours assigned, adapting to demand.”

The new centres beginning this course with the bilingual programme in primary years have received the training necessary for its implementation during June and July. Further training will also be available.

Thanks to Eye On Spain for this late information:

Spain has seen unprecedented tourism figures again in July, consolidating a record year for the industry.

37.9 million foreign tourists had come to Spanish shores by the end of last month, a 4.7% increase on the same period last year.

According to the latest figures released by Frontur via the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, the first seven months of the year have beaten all previous records, and the forecast for the rest of 2015 suggests that a new annual tourism record will be set.
