Frequently asked questions about learning Catalan

What Is Catalan?

Catalan is the official language of Andorra, a small European country between France and Spain, as well as the language used in Catalonia, the Valencian Community, and the Balearic Islands in Spain.


Altogether, there are 9.2 million Catalan speakers worldwide.

Where Is Catalan Spoken?

Catalan is the official language spoken in Andorra, a small country located between Spain and France.


Andorra is the world’s 16th smallest country by land and 11th smallest by population. The country is a total of 181 square miles and has a population of approximately 79,000 people, most of which are a Romance ethnic group originally of Catalan descent.


Despite being one of the smallest countries, its capital, Andorra la Vella, is the highest capital city in Europe with an elevation of 3,356 feet!


You can also find Catalan being used in many communities in eastern Spain, including Catalonia, the Valencian community, and the Balearic Islands.

Is Catalan The Same As Spanish?

No, Catalan is not the same as Spanish. Although both are part of the Western Romance languages and based on Latin, here are some of the major differences between the two:


  • Spanish has 5 vowel sounds while Catalan has 8
  • Catalan uses consonant clusters while Spanish requires a vowel sound between consonant sounds
  • Catalan uses voiced and unvoiced vowels


While the 2 languages aren’t the same, most Catalan speakers can speak Spanish and vice versa, so the two speakers can usually understand each other. On the other hand, if you already know Spanish and want to learn Catalan, it shouldn’t be too hard!

Is Catalan Hard To Learn?

No, Catalan isn’t hard to learn! It’ll be even easier if you already know Spanish or have experience with other Western Romance languages. But, no matter what, if you’re willing to put the time and effort into learning, you can become fluent in any language!


The Ling app is a great choice for learning Catalan. With 200+ Catalan lessons, you can learn how to read, write, and speak Catalan with just 10 minutes of practice a day.
