MADRID, SPAIN - APRIL 23: A notice board is full of language training courses on offer on the language school where daily Dutch language classes are preparing students for a move from Spain to a health care job in the Netherlands, on April 23, 2013 in Madrid, Spain. The students, all university schooled health care workers in the age group of 22 to 29 years old, are recruited locally by a Dutch employment agency. They learn to speak Dutch over a period of six months after which they are moved to the Netherlands with a one-and-a-half year health care job contract. Since the start of the economic crisis about 4 million jobs have disappeared in Europe putting the average unemployment level up to 12 percent. Unemployment in Spain currently stands at 26 percent, and youth unemployment at 55 percent, meaning many young Spaniards are leaving their country behind for the more prosperous northern Europe. In 2012 more than 4,000 immigrants to the Netherlands where from Spain, an increase of 25 percent from 2011, and two times as much as in 2007 before the start of the economic crisis. Not only the Dutch but also the German language classes in Spain are full. In Germany immigration figures rose from 400,000 in 2010 to 490,000 in 2012 with the number of Spanish newcomers doubling in the first six months of 2012 to 11,300.
