Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I often find myself pointing out some resource to a fellow Spaniard only to be dismissed with the argument "uf, that's in English!".

From the Eurobarometer on Europeans and Languages, English is the most common foreign language at 34%, followed by German at 12% and French at 11%, and finally Spanish and Russian at 5%. On page 10 there is a table of "languages most commonly used". They are, in order:

  • English 47%
  • German 30%
  • French 23%
  • Italian 15%
  • Spanish 14%

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
