basque euskara language

Basic Basque: English/Basque Dictionary

Learning Euskara one word at time. . .

From A to Z the dictionary lists words in English along with its Basque translation.

Then in part two, vocabulary is listed in groups to make them easy to find, ie: Colours, animals, places, food, flavours, days of the week, weather and people and so on.

Learning at least some of the language provides a glimpse into Basque social and family life.

One reason for the continued revival of the Basque language is its widening use in media, including television and radio.
