This week on our Spanish news podcast, we discuss the rise of the delta coronavirus strain in Spain, the spike in infections among young people and what regions are doing to curb contagions. We also look at why a growing number of Spanish schools are dropping out of bilingual education programs and speak to IE Business School teacher Joe Haslam about the pros and cons of learning a course in a different language.

As usual, we also catch up on all of your correspondence and take a look at the other stories of the week that have caught our eye.

¿Qué? is a podcast that tries to explain to an English-speaking audience the curious, the under-reported and sometimes simply bizarre news stories that are often in the headlines in Spain.

You can find the show on Spotify, you can subscribe through this RSS Feed or via your favorite podcast app, such as Google Podcasts or Apple Podcasts. You can also request it via Alexa, Siri or your Google Assistant.
