WERT: FACE OF THE WEEK (B1+)

FIGHTING SPAIN´S SCHOOL DROP-OUT RATE

(EXTRACT FROM THELOCAL.ES)

So why is he the Spanish Face of the Week?

His proposal to raise the exam score needed to qualify for university scholarships caused deans  across the country to react angrily.

It’s not the first time that scholarships have landed him in the newspapers: earlier this year he announced plans to abolish grants for overseas study of languages.

Then there was Wert’s surprising announcement this week about the Catalan language, which he speaks fluently.

“I really like Catalan,” said the minister, adding that he was “very proud” he spoke it.

He says he learned the language from a book without needing to resort to a study trip.

DO YOU THINK THAT THE MINISTER URGENTLY NEEDS TO REEXAMINE THE NEW STUDENT GRANT SYSTEM?

DO YOU AGREE WITH THE RAISING OF THE MINIMUM ACADEMIC REQUIREMENT TO QUALIFY FOR A GRANT FROM 5.5 TO 6.5 OUT OF 10?

WHAT ABOUT THE ABOLISHMENT OF GRANTS FOR THE STUDY OF LANGUAGES OVERSEAS?
