Catalan Vocabulary

Why and how to learn Catalan vocabulary with audio?

Catalonia will fill you with all kinds of treasures during your tourist and cultural trips. Feel free to ask to visit new places (M'agradaria go out aquest vespre : "I would like to go out tonight"). The local gastronomy, very gourmet, is also very famous so discover new dishes for all the occasions that will arise (La carta, si us plau! : "the menu please"). Get ready to explore the land of the famous three wise men and celebrate (fests)in their honour with the people !

You should also know that nothing will please a true Catalan, defending his culture with passion, more than to hear you say a few words in his language. And if you already have a little knowledge of French, it will be even easier for you, because these two languages are very close.

Thanks to our sheets, explore all the richness of the region without any problem, in any place and in any situation! To complete them, we provide you with some examples of books, films, series and songs to deepen your work.
