For anyone interested in Spanish and the vibrant cultures of the Spanish-speaking world, the annual Spanish Day is a real feast that certainly cannot be missed.
As a traditional open day of the Beijing arm of the Cervantes Institute, a Spanish cultural center, the Spanish Day is celebrated to honor learners, lovers and promoters of Spanish, the world’s second most spoken native language.
Held on June 22 this year, the event featured young soccer players and Spanish learners who staged a medley of sports and artistic performances. In addition, as a prelude to the exhibition Writer Picasso, those young participants also created a mega-sized mosaic artwork as a tribute to the Spanish master.
Supported by the embassies of Spanish-speaking countries such as Uruguay, Mexico and Argentina, the 12-hour-long open day showcased how diverse and intriguing the Spanish culture is through dance performances, film screenings, concerts, foods and more.
