Language

In the Basque Country, there are two official languages: Euskara (the Basque language) and Spanish. Spanish is spoken by all of the inhabitants. Euskara, which is used in a more limited manner, is the Basque Country's own original language. It is a language whose origins have not been determined and it has no apparent similarity with any of the neighbouring languages. The signs found on roads, in airports, ports, official centres, etc. are often bilingual. Many Basque people also speak French or English.
