¿Tienes una idea?

Euskera, the Basque language, is Europe's oldest surviving language unrelated to any other known language. It's spoken in the Basque Country across Spain (Euskadi, Navarre) and France (Iparralde). Despite historical challenges, Euskera has a rich cultural significance, influencing Basque identity through literature and arts. Efforts to preserve Euskera include promoting it in education and media, though it faces demographic challenges with declining native speakers. Its future hinges on ongoing preservation efforts, reflecting its enduring importance to Basque culture.
