Examples Learn

A few examples using the days (which do not start with a capital in Catalan).

A common theme on this website, because it aims to be practical is that the sentences all use simple but useful grammatical constructions.

In particular, On such and such a day ... is a useful sentence.

Road signs in Catalan

I was in Palma, and I took this picture.

Although not everyone speaks Catalan (and a sizeable minority speak Spanish) the sign is only in Catalan, and there was not an equivalent in Spanish to be seen.

If you happen to have a car, it is quite useful to know what it means.

So, go learn the days of the week, and don't get fined.

This notice is a reminder that Catalan is being spoken all around you. Anyone can forget this as a visitor. It is easy to visit Mallorca, speak in Spanish (or English, German or Polish) and not even realize (or know) that there is another language being lived all around you.
