In Barcelona, as in the rest of Catalonia, there are two official languages, Catalan and Spanish, both coming from Latin but quite different from one another. Everybody can speak Spanish although Catalan is more commonly spoken. Spanish pronunciation is quite easy; just pronounce the words as written. On the other hand, Catalan is more difficult, with sounds more similar to French. Anyway, in the most tourist places you'll always find someone who speaks English, French or, maybe, even German. We have included a short vocabulary list so that you can learn the most important words.
