Adiu!
(Hello!)

The Occitan language

Occitan is spoken in southern France, parts of Italy and a small part of Spain. It is spoken as a first language by roughly 1 million people. If you want to learn the Occitan language, our learn Occitan software will have you speaking in a very short time.

Speak Occitan

Speak! Occitan is based on a natural learning process - you practice simple grammar and vocabulary tasks in a structured manner until Speak! decides that you have learned the subject matter well enough to procede to the next level. In this way, you'll progress from the basics to more intricate structures at your own pace in exactly the same way a child learns a language - seeing, hearing and responding over a length of time. If your computer does not have a CD-ROM drive, the software can be installed via a USB stick.

Included in the course

  • 1 CD Rom with software to learn Occitan

Fun to use
I have TeachMe! for 8 different languages so far. TeachMe! lets you design your own plan for learning. There are good prompts. You can focus on the skill you need to develop. There's a booklet & audio CD for great practice anywhere, like in the car or at the gym. These programs are for those who want to learn or relearn a language from almost anywhere on the planet. Check it out for yourself. Better yet, get out and start having fun today. John Chapas, educator & student.

I'm learning ast last
Since this year, my son is in a bilingual Occitan schoo. We needed a quick way to help him in his lessons and also simply read his notebooks and the messages from his teacher. I wondered how I could learn the language. Meanwhile, my son had made ??tremendous progress and I was unable to accompany him in his learning. Friends spoke of the method LinguaShop and after a visit on the internet, I decided to buy it. After a one hour test, I was hooked. It seems easy and gradual, it's nice to finally be on track. Well, now it only remains to use what I am learning ...

Very effective
I am a school teacher. I was pleasantly surprised by TeachMe! Occitan. The AutoLearn feature is very complete and progresses the user from one level to the next. It's especially useful for beginners. The interface is well done. The learning method used is effective - it's based on hearing, writing and speaking over and over. It's both visual and audio based. There is a section to practice pronunciation (this uses the Langudocian dialect). The general quality of the voice is very good. This is the only interfactive product on the market to learn Occitan. Bravo LinguaShop!

Super, really effective
I bought TeachMe! Occitan a few months ago. It's well done and very interactive. Within the first few weeks, I could follow conversations and soon after I was talking myself. The vocabulary taught is very complete and the pedagogical method is very effective. My only regret is that TeachMe! doesn't have a version for Gascon yet (the variant of occitan spoken in my region).
