What is the Catalan language?

Map of where Catalan is spoken

Catalan belongs to the Romance family of languages, descended from Latin and is therefore related to other European languages such as French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian. It is the native language of most people who live in Catalonia, a country in the north-eastern corner of the Iberian peninsula with 4 provinces of Tarragona, Barcelona, Lleida and Girona. The language is also spoken in Valencia, around Perpignan in France, in the Balearic Islands (Majorca and Menorca) and in part of Sardinia.

How much does the course cost?

The cost of the course is £120 in total with a concession price of £100 for unwaged.
