Most books contain around lessons, with the active phase starting on Lesson The word Assimil comes from assimilation.

Ask specific questions about your target languages. Beginner questions welcome! Best Courses for Learning Catalan? If this did become a new country, I could see an increased interest in people wishing to study the language. Re: Best Courses for Learning Catalan? I tried the online course parla.
It has several languages as a base including Spanish, English, German and even just monolingual Catalan. If I ever decide to learn Catalan, I would include it along with parallel texts. I can learn a lot from just listening, reading and parallel texts. I'm not bragging. It's just easier when you know closely related languages. The Multi-track Approach.

I've personally enjoyed the French one more, but that's more than likely due to the fact that I have a better level in French than in Spanish.
The problem is that it is all in Catalan so of little use to a beginner. I purchased two of the course manuals along with the accompanying 5 CDs from the now-defunct language course publisher and reseller Audio-Forum the company has been resurrected by new owners; however, they do not currently list courses for Catalan.
If anyone is truly interested in this course and can locate the course books only, but cannot find a seller of the CDs, I would entertain continued discussions via the Private Message Function.

Does anyone know any sites for free streaming video for Catalan? Or any audiobooks? I haven't been able to find much of anything anywhere. Jump to. Who is online Users browsing this forum: No registered users and 0 guests.
