"Catalan language & culture has..." Language Tip by JaumeBCN

Language, Barcelona: 43 reviews and 15 photos


Catalan language & culture has been for centuries not respected by Spanish governors. Last time was during the Franco era (1939-1975) when even Catalan language was banned in schools. Nowadays, Spain is living in democracy, so Catalan is more respected and it is more preserved than before, as it must be. Of course, we Catalan people speak Spanish too but note that Catalan is our own language, not dialect.
