El Día del Español: 19 Junio 2010

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!

A Romantic Language That Used to be Our Very Own

About hechoayer

Things made yesterday still influence us until today. Things made today will influence us tomorrow. Things of the essence such as faith, culture, food, music and values should never disappear nor eroded by the times. Instead, these must be recorded, lived and shared. Something made yesterday - hecho ayer - can be tomorrow's saving grace. Never ignore the past.
