Catalan is spoken in northeastern Spain, in the Balearic Islands (a province of Spain), in the Principality of Andorra (where it is the official language), and in a small part of France. Historically it was the language of Catalonia, the region that includes Barcelona, but today its speakers extend down the Spanish coast as far as the province of Valencia. In France it is spoken in the province of Pyrénées-Orientales, formerly known as Roussillon, which borders Spain and Andorra.
Almost all of the 7 million speakers of Catalan are in Spain. Those in France number only 250,000, in Andorra 20,000. In Catalonia today it is co-official with Spanish and is taught in all the schools. Catalan is of the Romance family, most closely related to Provençal.

"My son started out taking French with Berlitz at age 5, and he is now taking Mandarin at age 9. He took Mandarin with an after school program previously, but the class was large, and he complained about going. We were afraid he would get turned-off to learning another language. At Berlitz he really benefits from the one-on-one attention, and now he says it's "fun"! As a parent, I am thrilled with the flexible schedule and understanding teachers!"
