Here's an article in Spanish from today on how often one finds foreign language proficiency as a requirement in a job in Spain - out of a total of 205,540 job offers analyzed, 33.76% of them required proficiency in a language other than Spanish.
The most required language was naturally English which made up 74% of the total, meaning a total of 1 in 4 job offers had English as a requirement. The next language was French which came in at 7.28% (had to go to this article to find the exact number for French though), followed by German at 4.52%. There was also an increase of less traditional languages such as Chinese, Arabic, Polish, Czech, and Japanese.
