After that, it will dip slightly in 2026, but again will recover to 700 in 2028. The figure will go up steadily to 750 m in 2030, which is the highest number over whole period.If we look at the number of learners of Spanish, it is set to hit about 200 m in 2020. After that, there will be a remarkable rise to 500 m at the end of the period. The trend is predicted to be similar to Mandarin. The figure will reach around 100 m in 2020.
