Why Learn Catalan?
Although Catalan is a relatively little-known language, it is said to be the eighth-most spoken language in the European Union, with a similar number of speakers to Swedish, Greek and Portuguese. Descended from Latin, like many Romance languages, it is mainly spoken in Catalonia, but is also used in the Balearic Islands, Andorra, Roussillon in south-east France and parts of Sardinia.
As the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is one of the most popular cities in Europe both to visit and to inhabit. With the magic of Gaudi around every corner and a beach just moments from the centre of the city it is not surprising that so many people want to live there, ever if it’s just for a year or two. If you are intending to move or visit then it is always worth knowing some Catalan to ingratiate yourself with the locals. Being able to speak the local lingo will not only facilitate getting things done but will also endear you to many people with whom you may not otherwise have communicated.

Frequently asked questions
What will I learn?
Our Course Outlines give an overview of the content and learning framework of Cactus courses. Includes themes, grammar and vocabulary you can typically expect to cover. These are intended as a guide only. Language teachers may at times adapt the course content to suit the specific level, aims and interests of the class.
How do I know what level I am?
Are you unsure where to start or progress to? Then take our level test and read our level descriptions for guidance.
Do I receive a qualification or certificate?
At the end of your course you receive a certificate of participation. You will be able to be download it from your MyCactus account. This confirms the language and level of course you have taken. Our course levels are based on two internationally recognised systems. You will have a universally accepted reference for your studies. (Important: Please note that you must complete the end of course questionnaire sent to you to be able to get your certificate! You will receive the course questionnaire by e-mail at the end of your course.)
Do I need a course book?
You will need a course book to attend your course. Course books are not included in the course fees. We recommend that you buy your own course book separately before your course starts. We will let you know which course book you will require and advise where you can purchase this. Please note that a course book often covers more than one level. So if you progress to the next course, you may not necessarily need to buy a new book. Again, we will advise you of this at the time. The course book is chosen by our teachers and academic team. This is based on which book is most suitable for the level of the class whilst offering the most communicative approach.
