Here in Barcelona everybody speak katalan and spanish, but I dont speak catalan, just spansih, so then in the social situation, when I am alone whit one catalan, they are speaking spanish to me, but when they are 3-4 they start to speak catalan, I mean it is a big problem, but what can I do, I can not forbidden them to speak catalan, and they are always speking katalan whit theirs friends and family, so why will they change just becaouse I am whit them. but if I will be a little bit bad, it is a problem for them as well, becouse everybody speak catalan, but nobody speak english.
What more, about my spanish ofcaouse my spanish is better now after a year here in Barcelona, but not so much as I wished. I mean it is 2 problem, the fisrt one is the cataln, the second one is that in the univerist I was studing economices, and not spansih, I have not ant problem to read a Micro littrature in spanish, or to understand the teacher in spansih, becaouse the vocabulary is alway the same, but I had not time to take a spansish couses, so then, my spansih grammar is still quite bad.
