It is said that European institutions in Brussels, but the Champion not have built it s League and Erasmus grants (or orgasmus, according to connoisseurs in juvenile heartburn). It is true. Both developments have created an Unnamable students and football players, a common cultural heritage (who does not know to Cristiano Ronaldo, Ribery, Rooney or Sneijder?) and increased competition in languages of children under 25 years. In this, look at where our modest Salamanca has been lucky. Not in the football, obviously because we continue where we were, but the attraction of University students. If it were not for foreigners, the University of Salamanca would gradually depopulated. But God thanks, our city a great place where to study seems them to outsiders: not only is receiving more foreign students of Castilla y Leon, but is also which has highest ratio of inputs to outputs of our young people abroad.
That is, that if not for the coming beyond our borders us we be, academically speaking, for dressing santos. It is no longer a trivial topic that, if we want to progress along that path (and there seems to be no other), Salamanca should internationalize: be not only the capital of Spanish, since for that suffering from fierce competition from other lares, but also the capital of the English in Spain. How is that in a city with so many students guiris by street our countrymen are not able to speak with them in English it? Or is it that we are all as Rodriguez Zapatero, the only European President that requires a translation earpiece to find out what they say their colleagues? I come from a trip to Frankfurt where in the Central Bank European Space Agency and other institutions all quisque speaks in English. Also on the street a majority of people understands you in that language. And why not here? If we intend to become a city of reference in culture, services and leisure, not us is another that give them facilities to outsiders.
