The Instituto Cervantes, Spain’s cultural agency abroad, ‘...is the institution created by Spain in 1991 to promote, teach Spanish and spread the culture of Spain and Spanish-speaking countries. The headquarters of the institution is now in Madrid, although it began in Alcalá de Henares: the hometown of the writer Miguel de Cervantes...’. In fact, some branches of the Instituto Cervantes offer courses in all of Spain’s official languages – castellano, catalán, galego and euzkera – to foreign students out of its total of seventy five offices worldwide. The first to offer these languages to students was the Dublin office (then known as the Instituto Cultural Español) here back in 1975. Curiously, it is almost impossible to study regional languages in other parts of Spain, whether in language institutes or universities. In November 2015, José Antonio Sierra at La Opinión de Málaga asked this very question – ‘why can’t we take classes of Catalán?’ Now, two years later, things are beginning to change, and the schools themselves are asking whether there is enough demand. Perhaps a better understanding of the different languages and cultures shared by Spain would contribute to easing regional tensions.

Just this week, the PSOE has proposed a new (and perhaps a trifle silly) law to push for translators of the co-official languages in Spain in all public departments and for citizens to be able to ask for Officialdom to deal with them in any of the aforementioned languages.

Every day, in every local newspaper, there’s some story or other of an arrest for growing or selling marijuana. Here’s Tuesday’s slightly humdrum tale in La Voz de Almería. It’s all to do with a crime against the public health apparently. The question sooner or later has to be put – what’s the point? Why waste the time on what is evidently a victimless crime? Why not legalise the stuff and make some (no doubt serious) tax money? A supportive site called (inevitably) La Marijuana says that around 9% of Spaniards are regular consumers (Iceland leads at over 18%, followed by the USA at 16%).

The Government aligns with the EU against President Trump but refuses to make any statements against the American leader. Rajoy and his ministers try to reject all of Trump's most contentious decisions but without drawing too much attention or by leading the European opposition to Trump’. Headline at El País. Spain’s foreign minister, Alfonso Dastis, is having to tread particularly warily as the new foreign policy of the USA is causing both surprise and concern worldwide; ‘of course we must worry’, he admits...

As the cold snap continues across Spain (some people prefer, rather than using the current expression ‘gota fría’, to refer to the phenomenon as ‘winter’), there is much criticism of the power companies and their ever-increasing charges. Spain swerved away, in some measure, from supporting research and investment into alternative energies when the ‘crisis’ began in 2008.

The Andalusian Secretary for Hacienda and Public Administration, one María Jesús Montero, is hopeful that the new regional rule limiting the 260,000 funcionarios (as they are called) from working more than 35 hours a week will mean lots of new jobs (for all that paperwork, see?).

How many Brits live in Spain, or Frenchmen, or Germans...? The official answer is the sum of the number inscribed on the Town Hall registries, the padrón. Some tourist towns – Marbella is one – will try and encourage foreigners to register. Others (Mojácar for example), most certainly won’t. The padrón is used in Spain to measure a town’s size and therefore to gauge how many licences and how much funding to send there. Tourist towns, such as the two mentioned above, fluctuate wildly during the summer season as visitors come and go.

We give a rest to the Brexit stories this week – first because there aren’t any to be found which have a Spanish flavour, and secondly to relieve the few of our readers resident in Spain who say they are in favour of the departure of the UK from the European Union. How right or wrong they will be shown to be will become evident within the next few months...
