This is the VOA Special English Education Report.这里是美国之音慢速英语教育报道。

Spain is struggling with a recession. More than one in five Spaniards are out of work. Unemployment is the highest of the seventeen nations that use the euro. But one area of the economy that seems to be doing well is English classes.西班牙正疲于应对经济衰退。

超过1/5的西班牙人失业,在17个欧元区国家中,西班牙失业率最高。

但还有一个经济领域状况似乎不错,那就是英语学习班。

A report this year from the EF Education First company listed Spain is a "low proficiency" country in English. Spain ranked just below Italy and just above Taiwan.英孚教育本年度的一份报告将西班牙列为英语“低熟练度”国家,其排名介于意大利和台湾之间。

About a fifth of the world speaks Spanish.全球大约1/5人口使用西班牙语。

There are many Spanish language TV shows and movies. Spaniards can also watch Hollywood movies dubbed in Spanish or news from Latin America.全球有很多西班牙语电视节目和电影。

西班牙人还可以观看西班牙语配音的好莱坞电影,或来自拉丁美洲的新闻。

注:拉丁美洲大部分国家以西班牙语为官方语言。

One of the few English voices on Spanish TV belongs to Richard Vaughan.西班牙电视台上为数不多的英语声音之一来自理查德·沃恩(Richard Vaughan)。

RICHARD VAUGHAN: "Hello and welcome back to another half-hour segment of Cloverdale's Corner. Today is Tuesday, and Lourdes has had to leave but we still have four people here ... "沃恩:“大家好,欢迎收看Cloverdale's Corner又一期半小时的节目。

今天是星期二,卢德不得不离开了,但还有我们四个。

”Richard Vaughan is from Texas but for thirty-five years has lived in Spain. He operates that country's biggest English teaching company. It even has its own TV channel. "Aprende Ingles" -- Learn English -- is Spain's only national channel in English.沃恩来自美国德克萨斯州,他已经西班牙居住了35年。

他经营着西班牙最大的英语教学公司,该公司甚至有自己的电视频道。

“Aprende Ingles”是西班牙唯一的全国性英语电视频道。

注:Aprende Ingles是西班牙语,意思是Learn English。

He says people watch his channel and take his classes to get a better job.他说,人们观看他的电视节目,参加他的英语课程以找到更好的工作。

RICHARD VAUGHAN: "People don't learn English here for cultural reasons. Some do. But the motive is always, ninety-nine percent of the time, professional."沃恩:“这里的人们学习英语不是出于文化原因,当然有些人也许是。

但99%的人学英语的动机是出于职业原因。

”Modern changes in the world economy -- globalization -- may offer chances for a better job in another country. But economic problems a
