Strong language


THE Teachers for Linguistic Freedom Platform (PDLL) and Vega Baja Parents’ Associations (AMPAS) are fundraising to fight the Multilingual Law.

They are opposing regional legislation that they maintain gives preference to Valenciano over Spanish in the Vega Baja where the regional language is barely spoken.

Both the PDLL and the local AMPAS now hope to raise enough to lodge an appeal with Valencian Community’s Upper Court of Justice against Education department decisions.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
