In my near 15 years in Spain I've heard many complaints about how few Spaniards speak English. Therefore, before I dive into the latest news about our regional government's attempts to raise the level of English instruction in state schools, I'd like to address this bit of criticism levied by visitors and expats alike... Because the reality is, those of us who enjoy Andalucia so much will always be much better off focusing on our Spanish skills than pointing a finger at our Spanish neighbours.
