Hi, this is Maria!
The Internet is a great place where to learn things and I certainly love doing so! I love languages and I realised there was no proper place where to learn Catalan online, or at least getting a taste of what it is. This is why I decided to create this website! 🙂
I’m from Barcelona itself and the intention of this website is to give you a foundation about the Catalan language but also to get to know some cultural aspects such as some delicious local recipes, mind-blowing spots beyond Barcelona or unique traditions that Catalan culture hosts. I believe that languages are a part of a culture, so learning a language should also involve its experiences, traditions and peculiarities. After all, we just want to communicate with each other… So what’s better than learning about the other’s culture? 🙂
Why learning Catalan online?
Catalan is the official language of Catalonia, a Northeastern region of Spain and it’s an extremely lively and healthy language. The official languages in Catalonia are Catalan and Spanish and we are used to using both perfectly and fluently. Both languages are quite similar but they are not the same!
Catalan is the language of Barcelona, Dalí, Gaudí, FCBarcelona… why not giving it a try?! 🙂
