I was surprised to be told that the biggest British Council operation was in Spain. Why? I asked. The answer is interesting: not financial profligacy but a huge (and self-financing) demand for its English language service. 40,000 kids are in bilingual secondary education, often in partnership with the BC. This history is interesting: the BC opened in 1940 under Franco and provided an outlet to the world. The investment then and throughout the Franco era in cultural diplomacy is paying off.
