The language boom exists in Spain because people feel that English is more necessary than ever to get a good job and succeed in today's competitive market. Remember that unemployment in Spain is still over 20%. That said the wages in some "academias" are suspiciously low. You have to wonder why. I think that if I return to Spain I will need to start focussing on one-to-one private classes. I can charge a higher rate than I would be paid per hour at a language school.
