Learn Catalan

Katalanska är ett romansk språk med många likheter i grammatik och ordförråd, vilket gör det lättare att ta in om du har lärt dig ett annan. De latin baserade romanska språken talas oftast i områden i det före detta västra romerska riket. Men många talas även utöver Europa, vilket inkluderar portugisiska i Brasilien, spanska i Latinamerika och franska i många delar av Afrika.

Fun facts about Catalan

Speaking Catalan was banned under Franco's rule and people would only speak it in the secrecy of their homes, with the result nowadays that some of the older generation aren't confident writing or spelling in Catalan because they were only taught Spanish in school.

If only a few people turn up to an event, you might hear someone describe it as 'Quatre Gats'- which literally translates as 'four cats'.

If someone invites you to 'fer el vermut' (do the vermouth) they're inviting you out for a drink (not necessarily vermouth!), a snack and a chat.
