Día E or Día del Español (Spanish Day)

Instituto Cervantes teams up with Shangri-la Plaza to celebrate the fourth annual Día E or Día del Español (Spanish Day).

This year, El Día E will take place in Shangri-la Plaza mall in Mandaluyong City where the event will be an added treat for mall-goers and will be more accessible to the general public. There will be a lot of different activities for all family members. Random words will be distributed to the participants so they can improve their Spanish vocabulary.

The Spanish-speaking population is one of the fastest growing segments in the world. Whether from a marketing, political, or a general public perspective, a person with good command of the Spanish language has a unique growth opportunity compared to those who don’t.

Spoken by 500 million people, Spanish is the official language of over 20 nations. This celebration promotes an ongoing effort to raise awareness about the importance of Spanish and to establish a meeting point for all Spanish speakers.

Free entertainment will be provided by a host of exciting performers including live music from a Spanish DJ. During the day there will also be an all-day feast of Spanish food. Visitors can take part in the festivity by choosing their favorite Spanish word. Interested participants may just visit the mall and write their thoughts in Spanish on creatively designed walls.

Participants may join the “¿Cual es tú palabra favorita? (What is your favourite Spanish word?)” contest, wherein they can submit their photo entries to accompanied by a caption containing the photographer’s favorite word. Instituto Cervantes will be picking the finalists whose pictures will be displayed during El Día E. The winner will be determined based on the most number of votes in the entire duration of the event.

There will also be a lot of games and interactive activities like the ¿Qué dirían? (What would they say?), El Día É para niños (El Día E for Kids), and the Sopa de palabras (word hunt). A Spanish book and other cool prizes will be given as a token of participation in any of the activities. The aim of this is to promote Spanish literature while at the same time encouraging the people to participate in the activities.

Dia del Español is presented by the Instituto Cervantes de Manila, Shangri-la Plaza, the Spanish Embassy in the Philippines and AECID.
