¡Viva! 2017 Basque Language Taster

Ongietorri! Welcome!

Basque speakers and learners of all levels, even absolute beginners, are welcome to this relaxed introduction to the language, to celebrate the vibrant Basque film industry and wider Basque culture. Are you a fan of the world-class Basque cuisine, the haunting music of the bertsolaris, Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum, or the San Sebastián International Film Festival? Come along to pick up your first words of euskara, the only surviving pre-Indo-European language in Western Europe.

This informal session will be led by staff from the Instituto Cervantes, with special guests Ben Sharrock and Irune Gurtubai (Pikadero), and Maider Fernández and María Elorza (KIMUAK and Kalebegiak).
