PODEMOS is calling for schoolchildren all over Spain to be taught Basque, Catalan and Gallego.
Under the party’s general election manifesto, children from Malaga could, for example, swap places with children from Bilbao to learn Basque for a term.
Pablo Iglesias’ radical left-wing party has pledged to set up specific schools and student exchanges to ensure children can study the different regional languages.
“Spain is a multinational country with different languages , and we must use that because it is enriching for children,” said a Podemos spokesman.
The party’s manifesto says all Spain’s languages are a ‘cultural and linguistic heritage of the state’, not just the official language, Castellano.
