A aprendre Catalá!

27 Nov

Time to get started with Catalan! Just about time. I always like to give myself a new challenge by learning a new language. The reason… well, I live in Barcelona, which is reason enough. The fact that I speak Spanish helps, but I think that pronunciation is going to give me a bit trouble though.

I think that it is important to learn the “local” language. In this case it’s Spanish AND Catalan. It’s an important part to get integrated. It can also be a bit frustrating because sometimes Spanish is not enough in Catalunya. In the other hand, I recognise the problem of integration also from Denmark. And I don’t want to be that part. So I have to get rid of all negative thoughts and just learn. Also the fact that for me it has always been easy to learn a new language. So Catalan will be no exception! (I’m kind of looking forward to be able to change the number from 3 to 4!!)

I really wanted to go to have classes and meet other people. (I know that I can have classes for free). But in the end I decided to borrow some books at the library and get started. I think that teaching yourself something can be better than a class. I mean, you can just take your time learning! But the negative thing about it is that if you have questions or doubts, there will be no teacher. I guess it depends of the way you like to learn.

 

 

The more that I open this book, the more crazy I think I am!

 

Incredible! I actually managed to find a Danish – Catalan dictionary!

 

 

So… A aprendre Catalá!
