I bought this software a few years back in order to learn the basics in Catalan for my vacations. It is very fun to use and alternates between grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. It is also quite extensive in terms of content and you have to keep at it to get all the way to the end of the course.

I think the course is excellent. It's a very pleasant initiation into the Catalan language. As well, it was with surprise that I realized I could learn through either French or English. (Learning through French is obviously a big help for me)

I moved to Barcelona, Spain without speaking any Spanish. I discovered to be part of the 'in crowd' you need to speak Catalan.
After buying a basic book and discovering that I was unable to learn due to the lack of interest, I chose TeachMe! Catalan as I liked the way it broke the learning down into Gramar, Vocabulary and Pronunciation.
The pronunciation is very important if no native Catalan speakers are present as a lot of the words are pronounced different from English words and this software will show you if your pronunciation is good, acceptable or bad.
All in all I have had a very good experience with LinguaShop - the package arrived within 3 days from ordering it and the customer support has been fast and solved a few minor problems I had.
Practicing between 1 to 2 hours a day, I am able to hold basic conversations in Catalan in less then 1 month's time. I recommend TeachMe! Catalan to users who are wanting to learn Catalan, as it makes learning fun and interesting.
