  2. Would I like to work…etc?

    No. I think obligatory English should be abolished or reduced to about 1 year for kids about 15 years old.

    The stats are awful.

  3. So you don’t believe it’s important for Spanish children to learn English as part of their education? Interesting. Which stats are awful?
