On 19 June 2010, a Saturday, Instituto Cervantes de Manila (T.M. Kalaw, Manila) will lead the entire country in celebrating what is known as the National Spanish Language Day, El Día del Español.
El Día E is a day that celebrates the significance and historical importance of a language that has bridged countless people through the centuries. It is the language of countless important icons of history, art, music, culture as well as the language of several countries. To this day, Español is the primary language of millions of citizens of the world, and yes, even in the Philippines, Spanish is still a language that is used by some members of our society.
Last year, Instituto Cervantes de Manila was chosen among 70 countries to celebrate the diversity and importance of this language and the past celebration was a big success.
Vamos al Instituto Cervantes el 19 de junio y celebramos una lengua importante, una lengua muy cerca de Filipino.
Viva el Español!
