    LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    Upon successful completion of the Introduction to Catalan Language course, users are able to cope linguistically in a range of limited but basic survival situations which require a very predictable use of language. They can:

         - Give simple personal details about themselves, such as where they live, who they know, what they like and what they have.

         - Express basic needs. Ask for and give specific information using common, everyday expressions and very simple phrases.

         - Understand short texts, expressed in simple language, directed at the general public.

         - Identify the central topic of longer messages and extract the main relevant points.

         - Write short, simple notes and texts and complete forms with personal details.
