Basque Country

How common or uncommon would it be for someone who lived in Basque country to speak English?  I am not finding anything about that online

The reason I would like to know, is that I want to put a small family in a story where at least the parents neither speak nor understand English. Another character recognizes this because he can tell where they come from. So, if you know of any region in Western Europe in which someone is unlikely to speak English (preferably not a very poor area, though), that would help me as well.

I searched variations on Spain (or Germany), region, speak English.  I got a few answers.com things that were fairly unhelpful.  I also looked up Basque Country on Wikipedia, but got no help there.
