Catalan adjectives

Unlike English, adjectives in Catalan are placed after the noun. Adjectives in Catalan agree with the noun they describe. This means that adjectives have a special form if the noun that they describe is in the plural.

Examples for using Catalan adjectives

els xicots alts
the tall boys
els xicots dèbils
the weak boys
els xicots joves
the young boys
els xicots intel·ligents
the smart boys
els xicots forts
the strong boys

How to learn Catalan

Speak! Catalan is based on a natural learning process - you practice simple grammar and vocabulary tasks several times until Speak! decides that you have learned the tasks well enough to move up to the next level. In this way, you'll move 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.

Worth the wait

A postal strike in Germany led to my order arriving considerably later than expected; however the nice folks at Linguashop were prompt and courteous the entire time and helped ease my concerns about ordering from them for the first time. The product is great; I've begun my (Catalan) lessons and am finding it quite easy to set up and navigate my way through. I recommend both the company, and the course, without reservation.

An essential learning aid

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.
