Boy do they love those stats. here in Spain.

With more than forty-four different nationalities it is no longer enough to master English to be a tourist guide in the Galician capital.
But English will be the common language for most tourists. Having tourist information printed mainly in Galician could put visitors off coming to this part of the world.
