Yesterday we went to the library and we found another book to learn Catalan. Its called Colloquial Catalan ‘the complete course for beginners’ by Toni Ibarz and Alexander Ibarz. On first glance it’s a much better book for new beginners than the ‘Teach your self’ method.
There is obvious progress and the sentences learned are for immediate usage in real life situations.
I’ll try it out for the next few weeks and see how we go.
The Teach Yourself Catalan is better suited to someone who already has some Catalan up their sleeve. It just moved too fast for me and I felt that I wasn’t progressing or learning anything. I’ll take another look at it next year.
