During public primary education, students develop Spanish (Castellano) language skills and learn the official language of the autonomous community. Once a child reaches the final year of primary school they begin with the basics of a foreign language, usually English.
During public secondary education another language may be added to their studies, usually French or German.
International schools generally teach in a foreign language; some international schools also teach bilingually in Castellano.
If a child in a state school is unable to read or write Castilian Spanish, extra lessons will be provided; the number of hours of instruction varies depending on the school and the region. Most towns have language centers where, for a small fee, a child can receive extra lessons outside of school hours.
