LEARNING CATALAN

ON THE INTERNET


HOLA I BENVINGUT!.......HELLO AND WELCOME!

Introduction To These Pages

These pages are meant to be a starting place for people who wish to learn Catalan on the Internet, or those searching for information about the Catalan language. They are primarily aimed at English-speaking people, but speakers of any language will be able to use some of the resources found here such as the Catalan verb tables. At present these pages are under construction and will be changing from time to time.

First of all you should know that what we might call "classes" in Catalan on the Internet at present are almost non-existent. That being said, there are probably thousands of pages on the Internet today that are written in Catalan, contain sound files in Catalan, or contain information about the Catalan language which a person can use to learn Catalan. And, fortunately, the Internet sometimes seems to be changing at the speed of light these days, so what you don't find today may very likely be here tomorrow. As more resources become available, they will included on these pages.


A Brief Catalan Tutorial

A Brief Catalan Tutorial will introduce you to some basics of the Catalan language. Here, among other things, you will find a pronunciation guide and verb tables.

Parla Català! (Speak Catalan!)

Parla Català!, which is still under construction, will be my humble attempt at providing Catalan lessons via the Internet. (Formerly called Catalan 101)

Hearing Catalan spoken

One of the best helps to learning Catalan is to get used to hearing it spoken. The best way to do that is to listen to Catalunya Radio live on the Internet. See the section below "Other Catalan language resources on the Web - Spoken Catalan".
