The current main contributor for Catalan for Spanish speakers, is also fluent in English, so when that one is finished, they will most likely start the Catalan for English speakers. :)

That's a good idea WinAR6, I could try that, and it would be an extra challenge!

And that's great news, UneJamKuqEZi, thank you for letting me know! Can't wait, Duolingo is my <3

I was looking for some internet sources to learn Catalan. Currently, I'm working on my Spanish since my wife is from a beautiful city, Barcelona where I fell in love. For me, that would be great because my Spanish does not suffice for learning Catalan though Duolingo course for Spanish speaking learners. It's been two years since this original post. Please Duolongo creates Catalan course for us in English!!!

I really wish duolingo did Catalan for English speakers. I'm desperately trying to learn it.

As there doesn't seem to have been any response to these requests over the past 2 years I'm not hopeful of a Catalan course for English speakers. Perhaps we can persuade another provider.

I am fluent in Spanish so it is easy for me....but for those of you who are not it is a pity they do not do from English to Catalan...indeed!!

If they make a catalán for English speakers course I might finally pay for the app. It helped me a lot with Dutch

I'll gladly help. I'm from Catalonia and I'd love to be able to help people trying to learn my language

Then go to this website! https://incubator.duolingo.com/apply It will never happen unless some brave and confident person (who speaks Catalan and English fluently) takes the plunge and begins hatching this course. Even if you don't think you could complete the whole course yourself, it has to start somewhere. New contributors will join in. If a few people apply here, Duolingo will take notice.

October 20, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/WinAR6

YES! At, the moment I'm planning on learning Catalan through the Spanish course when it's done... and I've learned Spanish. Yes I would love a Catalan for English speakers course.

https://www.duolingo.com/Ottman001

I came to Duolingo in the hope of learning Catalan for the benefit of a Catalonian friend. If such a course existed, I would use it.

Hey! I’m catalan and my partner is from NZ, he really wants to learn catalan since it’s quite hard for him to follow any conversations with my friends and family. Duolingo, we need an English-Catalan course!

SI, SI, SI!!!!! I would definitely be interested! I know a little Spanish but not enough to use it as my base language to learn Catalunya. PLEASE?

June 12, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Janette767253

Yes. I am learning Spanish but would be intetested in learning Catalan as I have found it is used alot in cataluyna and it is a separate language that could be lost in time if not encouraged. I enjoy duolingo and found it helpful learning spanish, why is it such a problem to have a catalan course? Is it politics getting in the in the way of education?

August 7, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/SimonMasco

I would love this and I would help make it happen. Currently i have to practice through Spanish but it confuses my brain.

https://www.duolingo.com/UN1C0RN2

Yes! My husband and I are planning on emigrating to Barcelona and I'm learning Spanish, but I would love to add Catalan. I may pursue it down the road once I feel fluent in Spanish.

September 3, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/rwb1985

I would love this, but as I speak Spanish as well, the Catalan for Spanish-speakers is good enough for me. But, because there are so many cognates I often forget which language is which and type in catañol when trying to type in Spanish.

September 7, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/KovarekD

Absolutely! If anyone is willing to start a Catalan-from-English course in the incubator, I'm also ready to volunteer as tester, if that'd speed up the process.

https://www.duolingo.com/Olivia-R-W

Absolutely! With Spanish being my most progressed and probably my favorite, and with my French progressing, I set a goal for myself to live in Andorra at some point in my life- the country in between Spain and France. However- they speak Catalan, and even at level 12 and 45%, I don't think I should do the Catalan through Spanish course.

Count me in! I'm currently doing Catalan from Spanish, which is alright as I am fluent in Spanish, but I wonder what it would be like to do Catalan from English. It might save my brain a little work.

YES! Catalan is such a beautiful language being a hybrid of French and Spanish!
