Spain: They speak better English than they do French

The drive into Spain was a long one; and I didn’t realize we had to go up and down so many mountain roads, which made it longer. I must’ve forgotten we were in the Pyrenees. Though we did drive right next to the bottom of this massive dam, which was a cool sight.
...
Again I experienced the same thing when we went to Spain last year—even if you’re right over the border, there is no French spoken. They speak better English than they do French. It’s probably a matter of choice too, in a rebellious way.

No reason to learn French when you can learn English, Spanish, Portuguese or any other of the many languages that are more useful than French.
