I bought TeachMe! Catalan for my 16 year old daughter and myself after we moved to Catalunya a year ago. The software has helped a great deal with learning the basics of Catalan, especially in getting to grips with the vocabulary. The repetition of the words you don’t know makes them stick in your head and the software is easy to use and fun. (ok, so the repetition isn’t exactly fun, but it’s effective).
A bit more grammar in the course would be a real plus, but the dictionary is excellent and if it had not been for the software my daughter wouldn't have been able to cope with the Catalan lessons at school. A year later, she is now in the regular courses at school, all in Catalan. During the holidays in the past year she made it a practice to do two to three hours a day with TeachMe! and found she had progressed by leaps and bounds by the next school term. It took a month to two months for her to finish the CD and get all the words right (i.e. remember them all).
We recommend TeachMe! as an essential aid for anyone coming to live here if they want to learn the basics of the language faster and make it easier.

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.

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)
