Madrid plots to reassert control over Gibraltar after ‘deterioration of Spanish culture’

However, the Institute’s director did cite overworked staff, vacant positions and low salaries as factors which “complicate things” in the calculations around the Gibraltar facility.

Gibraltar, as a British Overseas Territory, lists English as its official language, with many residents also fluently speaking Spanish or Llanito, a hybrid language of Spanish, English and other Mediterranean languages.

English is the language typically taught in schools in the territory, and the one used for Government administration.

A Cervantes Institute, according to Garcia Montero, would ensure the teaching of the Spanish language, particularly among Gibraltarian schoolchildren.
