This course provides an intensive introduction to the language of the Països Catalans, a geographical area that spans four countries and comprises over 9 million speakers. Working with authentic linguistic materials developed and presented within a uniquely Catalan cultural context, students will develop oral, listening, reading and writing skills in standard Eastern Catalan. When appropriate, we shall also discuss differences among the major regional varieties, especially Valencian. The language of instruction is Catalan. This course is recommended for students interested in studying in Barcelona.

Pre-requisite(s): 200-level coursework in another Romance language or its equivalent.
