On Learning Catalan


In the latest edition of Metropolitan, they’ve run an article I wrote about my experience using the language school to learn Catalan. For anyone who follows my site, this will of course be old hat as I’ve written about before in rather lengthy terms, here, here, here, here, and here. As you may have guessed, while publishing two books while here, I’ve not done terribly much else except continue my exploration of all things toilet as that never gets old.

So, read it if you like. It’s a much shorter, more concise account of things and it serves as a decent diversion if you’re say at a Catalan farmhouse cutting back 60 years of overgrowth in the forest.
