Subhas Yadav from UoH opines on the state of the Spanish language in the Indian education system

Spanishteaching in India is relatively a new phenomenon. When we compare it to the most widely taught language here, French, it is still behind in the game, opines Subhas Yadav, currently a PhD scholar at the University of Hyderabad and a lover and teacher of this language. His love for theSpanishlanguage began when he came across the translated version of the popular book La Familia de Pascual Duarte and most recently, it took him to Spain as he bagged the Erasmus Mundus scholarship (September 2017 - July 2018) at the University of Extremadura, Spain. 'Today, due to many factors including globalisation, a migrating urban population, MNCs expansion and internationalisation of education,Spanishhas established itself as the most popular second language at the International Baccalaureate and Cambridge curricula schools of India,' says Yadav, who has a Master's from Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
