A VISIT TO THE BASQUE LANGUAGE HOUSE
In our project, we are working the Basque language as part of our cultural heritage . We have taken our students to the Basque language House. It has been a very educational visit and they have enjoyed and learnt a lot of information about the Basque language, they didn´t know. The visit has been a trip, as the one our students are doing during these two years through Erasmus+ project, to understand how the Basque language has endured over 6,000 years and how it has evolved through the different periods of Roman conquest and the medieval wars, right up to the present day.
It is a language isolate, it has no known relatives anywhere in the world. This has led to a number of hypothesis about its origin.
They have listened to the different dialects, learnt how the words are constructed and discoverd what makes a living language.
They will share with our Greek partners all the most curious, unusual and amazing characteristics of the Basque language.
After the visit, they have participated on a digital comic competition and they have created their own comic stories.
