Gosh, the things you learn on the list! I had no idea Spain had four
languages. What are they? Spanish=Castilian, Catalan, Basque, but what's
Galician (in English), Gallego (in Spanish). It's spoken in the
northwestern corner of Spain, Galicia. I spent four weeks there this
summer and it was fabulous.I must confess I did buy Harry Potter in
Gallego (if there had been a DWJ available, I would have bought that
instead, I swear). It is very similar to Portuguese.
I have to say, I am impressed. Most people I talk to in the US have no
idea that any language but Spanish is spoken in Spain. I am taking
Catalan right now and most people I have told don't seem to have a clue
what it is.
