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 ...

Occitan is the most beautiful language in the world, the language of the troubadours, and it is making a comeback. With "Teach Me! Occitan," I am rapidly becoming proficient in reading, writing and speaking this magnificent language, and can't wait to travel to Languedoc to speak with the natives!

I wanted a product, that was easy to use and a teacher from Toulouse told me about TeachMe! Occitan. He had tried it out and found it good. Based on his comments, I got myself a copy.
There was an Occitan evening in our town a while ago and I was really surprised how much I could understand. I could recognize the words I had learnt and I could follow the conversation without too much trouble. Afterwards there was singing. I was able to sing along as, thanks to TeachMe! Occitan, I could read the lyrics quite well.
I like to use the Auto-Lernen Funktion and I do a bit of vocabulary and then a bit of grammar. I was using the setup 'Occitan/German' in the beginning, but having now achieved a base vocabulary, I've set it up to learn 'German/Occitan'.
For the last few days, I've been writing all the letters of the words which helps me retain the new words I learn. I also read the stories regularily and it's getting easier and easier to fill in the missing words.
TeachMe! makes learning fun. It's very interactive and the repetitive process really helps you to learn quickly. I'll be conversing with the locals in short order.
