Palma.—The Director of the British Council for  Spain Rod  Pryde said yesterday that Balearic government plans to introduce the  Three Language Education System (TIL) in the region are “bold and ambitious”.
Speaking at the official launch of the innovative English assessment exam “Aptis” at the Hotel Valparaiso Palace in Palma, Pryde explained that the system is “a must these days” and a change that parents and  students “should not fear.”
“This will be of major benefit for the youngsters in the future. And at this age it is easier to expose them to new languages. I don’t think parents need to worry their children will lose out on Castilian and Catalan. There is enough brain space to learn English as well and it will be of benefit later.”
