About Easy Catalan

People have different reasons for wanting to learn a specific language, and these are some of mine regarding Catalan.

I am interested in languages (or I wouldn't have a website like this), but also I often visit the balearic islands and hear Catalan spoken.

I don't need to learn Catalan to communicate as everyone speaks Spanish, but am curious about the language and the meaning of words that I see around me. I see the word platja and I want to know the meaning.

I also hear people in shops and want to understand basic conversations, and maybe say the occasional bon dia 'good morning'. But really I'm just interested in knowing a bit more about the language.

I haven't found many Catalan language resources (in English) on the internet, so I thought I would use this website to write about what I come across, and with luck create a useful reference both for me and maybe others over time.

If you have any comments, suggestions, (corections) etc, drop me a line on Kind words, or my blog at Surface Languages (my other site).


The translations and audio were translated and recorded by a translator and native speaker. They should be perfect.

The explanations were written by me, and like the site are constantly in flux. There may be mistakes.

I hope you enjoy it

Easy Catalan is (as you may have guessed from reading the above) a part-time project, but I will continue adding to it organically and over time as I have with Surface Languages.
