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.
