Applications and resources to learn Catalan
I am just starting to learn Catalan by myself  and I am trying to apply the same approach I used when I started learning Spanish. However, there are some pieces missing and I would appreciate it if you could give me your advice.
 
  • Grammar: I used the application called “Collins easy learning Spanish” which contains most of the grammar rules. Is there anything similar for Catalan?
  • Listening: I used to listen to podcasts, especially good was the one called “News in slow Spanish”. Could you advise any podcasts in Catalan?
  • New words: I used Anki, but I see it does not have many cards for Catalan. Could you advise any other application for learning new words?
  • Verbs: is there any application where I can quickly check the conjugations of a specific verb?
  • The good thing is that there is Catalan in Duolingo, this is really helpful!
 
Apart from the point above, it would be very appreciated if you could advise any other applications or resources to learn Catalan!

Hi Alex 

I agree with you about to use Duolingo. It's a very good app for learning languages, and you can learn catalan through it. Also, you can watch tv series in Catalan, for example Plats bruts or Merlí (these are good series;)) and listen catalan music when at the same time you read the song (Els Pets or Manel use good catalan)

Good luck!

I found this app to learn new words in Catalan: https://itunes.apple.com/es/app/utalk-catalan/id322411078?mt=8

I hope it's helpful!

Hello!

I always recommend parla.cat

It's an integrated course with grammar, listening exercises, vocabulary... The progress is slow but consistent, and I found it quite entertaining. And it's free, of course!

To check verb conjugations, you can use this dictionary http://www.diccionari.cat/ You can see the conjugatio chart for every verb you look up if you press "conjugació" :)

Good luck!
