    Spanish Course for Brits with Brexit Fears

    Brexit fear leads to a
    Brits' Spanish course
    A COLLEGE on the Costa del Sol has created a course for British expats living in Spain who want to become citizens there because they are concerned about Brexit repercussions.
    The Parnell Academy, in Mijas, begins the “Brexpats Spanish Nationality Course” next week.
    It is aimed at teaching Britons “command of the language and a general knowledge of its customs, history, culture, politics, sports, etc,” so they can pass the Spanish citizenship test.
    The course is being run in partnership with the Brexpats in Spain group, formed in the aftermath of June's Brexit vote to support British citizens in Spain, worried about their rights and state pensions.
    “Due to Brexit, its repercussions and the ongoing need to learn Spanish, Parnell Academy has teamed up with Brexpats in Spain to offer Spanish courses that cover everything needed to pass the Spanish Nationality Exam,” says the college.
    “Join this course to prepare yourself for the Spanish Nationality Exam, and take a positive step towards integration into Spanish culture and language."
    But this citizenship test is, apparently, a lot harder than people may think.
    "Questions range from legal opening hours of businesses in Spain, to knowledge of national holidays and the different sort of climates that exist across Spain,” said Parnell Academy director Natasha Parnell. “And then there is sporting knowledge, and questions on how our political system works.”
    Anne Hernandez, founder of the Brexpats in Spain, said: “A lot of people who live in this area have expressed concern about how they will be affected by Brexit, what implications will it have on their right to live here, and their healthcare and pensions.”
    The Foreign Office advises that there are no immediate changes for Britons travelling or living within the EU. They still have the right to work in all EU countries, to travel in the normal way, to use their UK passports and other documentation, and their pensions and healthcare also remain unchanged.”
