An article here gives the account of a language school in Spain called Instituto Iberochino that reports an increasing interest in the Chinese language to the tune of 50% or 60% per year. According to the article the school started in 2007, and thus is a very small and limited sample from which to draw conclusions. However, it is certainly reasonable to say that Chinese language teaching is at the very least a good and continually expanding business to get into.
The school says it has 500 students in Madrid alone, who are "mostly young people and professionals under the age of 40."
