El Mundo: Only 57 Percent of Fourth-Graders Pass Catalan and Castellano in Mallorca

17 Dec

Today’s El Mundo reports that only 57.2 percent of Mallorcan fourth-graders pass their Catalan and Castellano courses, the majority eking by with just a Suficiente. Many students end up entering secondary school with poor oral and written levels of Catalan and Castellano. Considering that both are official languages of the Balearic Islands, one can’t help wonder what the numbers are for English.

So far, what have your experiences been at your schools? Do your students have a good level of English, or is there room for improvement?
