Did you know that gallego is the language of Galicia, spoken by around 3 million people? It is an official requirement for many official and academic positions, and a compulsory school subject. Galician, a Romance language close to Portuguese, was banned under Franco but with the return to democracy, it became an official language in Galicia beside Castilian. Nowadays there is Galician radio and television, and a considerable amount of publishing. Galician has less social prestige than Catalan and Basque in their homelands. The middle classes have largely opted to use Castilian. See also lenguas cooficiales.
