Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to analyze and discuss the possibilities of an equitative implementation of the European policies of language proficiency in the context of neoliberal education policies. With the EU recommendations about language proficiency policies as starting point, the main documents governing the Swedish educational policy as well as the concrete practices of the different actors involved in the teaching and learning of Spanish as a foreign language are analyzed. This is done by taking as an axis the different forms of freedom of choice. It is shown that the current neoliberal educational system in Sweden does not favor the implementation of the recommendations of equity proposed by the EU. This is explained by the increasing freedom of choice by various actors, which has created a state of instability and inequality in the conditions of implementation of European policies on multilingualism.
