Salamanca, Jul 7 (EFE) .- The director of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE), Santiago Muñoz Machado, has described this Wednesday the creation of an Office of Spanish in the Community of Madrid as an “anecdote”, as it lacks significance.
It is a “political decision adopted by an autonomous community that does not go beyond the importance it has for the community that has decided to take that organizational step,” he declared to journalists, before delivering the inaugural conference of the 58th Language Courses and Spanish Culture from the University of Salamanca (Usal).
“It does not have any special significance. It is a decision that we will see what development it will have in the future,” added Muñoz Machado.
On the contrary, he stressed that the University of Salamanca is the one that cares the most about the teaching of Spanish and has thanked Usal for this commitment, since “institutions that contribute to its expansion and development” are needed.
