Catalan is a romance language spoken in Catalonia, Valencia, the Balearic Isles, Andorra, and the town of Alghero in Sardinia. We offer a two-course accelerated sequence in Beginning Catalan Language and Culture (SPAN 11A and 11B). Our student-centered, proficiency-oriented courses are task-based and designed to help students achieve communicative competence in listening, speaking, reading and writing, as well as cultural competence.
Our Catalan courses are designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students who have completed at least two years of college-level Spanish, Portuguese, or another romance language other than Catalan. If you are not sure, you should contact the instructor for a recommendation.
