SUGGESTED ACTIONS

⚠️ Useful to know
  • Spanish and Catalán are both officially recognised languages in Barcelona and mandatory for school children to learn
  • Public institutions and paperwork is usually only available in Spanish or Catalán, which makes it advisable to learn if you plan to stay longer term
? Why complete this step?
  • English is not widely or confidently spoken outside Barcelona expat circles, as such it is advisable to learn some Spanish in order to acclimatise properly
  • Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world after Chinese – once you’ve learnt it, it will literally open up a whole new world for you!
  • If you dare to learn Catalán you’ll be a hit with the locals. It’s quite rare for foreigners to do so
