INTERNATIONAL MOTHER LANGUAGE DAY

The Provincial Council of Bizkaia values ​​Basque as a mother tongue, alone or together with other languages.

A study carried out at the request of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia indicates that more than 120 languages ​​are spoken in Bizkaia. On the eve of the International Mother Language Day, the Regional Institution highlights Basque as a bridge for people with other mother tongues. In addition to Basque and Spanish, four of the most widely spoken languages ​​in Bizkaia are: Galician, Arabic, Tamazight and Romanian.
