Now it is the season for tourism. School is just out and the exams are almost over. It is interesting to note what economies are doing by what countries the tourists come from. In Spain at the moment the majority of tourists are groups of young American students. Everywhere you go there is s group of students being led by a guide that may or may not speak Spanish. Spain’s youth is just starting to speak English as the instruction of English in the schools is very bad. In the United States the majority of all the tourists are Chinese both from Taiwan and the main land. There are so many Chinese in the United States there is now actually an Educational Quota to limit the number of Chinese the universities are accepting. This is an indication of the Economy of both the United States and China. They now are the two powerful countries economically sound in the world. The United States is still the favorite destination for the Chinese. Even without bumping into the groups one can tell as the favorite stores of the Chinese now all have salesmen that can speak Chinese language. The lack of mandarin speakers can also be seen by the adds all over the USA requesting Chinese language speakers. In Madrid all the major stores now have a mandarin speaker in the interpreting department. Out of the capitals that has not yet happened as there is a lack of Spanish mandarin speakers. It will most likely only take a couple more years for that problem to be solved as now mandarin is taught in the public schools .
