English is the modern lingua franca, dominating all fields of human life, but leaving its bubble is an eye-opener. Each new language contains a whole new culture, people to discover and to connect to.

On 22 June, you can do just that. The Spanish Language Day is an entertaining and illuminating way to get introduced to one of the world's most widely spoken languages, and the cultures it has produced. Organised by the Cervantes Institute in Sofia, between 11 am and 4 pm in front of the institute on St Sofia Street, the event will include concerts, free language courses, fun activities and crafts, preparation of emblematic dishes from Spain and Latin America.
