Splang Saturday: 15 – Catalán Edition

When I went to the beautiful Mediterranean island of Mallorca, I made sure not to come back empty-handed. In Mallorca, they speak a dialect of Catalán. Here are a few words I was taught by the friends I made there! It has been translated from Catalán to Spanish to English.

Gracis = shorthand for “Gràcies” = Gracias = Thank you

Molt bo = Muy bueno = Very good

Molt bé = Muy bien = Well; nice; good

Bon profit = buen provecho = Bon appetit

Festa = fiesta = party

Bon dia = buenos días = good morning/day

Bona nit = buenas noches = good night

Un poc = un poco = a little

Pa = pan = bread

GERMAN: (yes, German — Mallorca is a very popular German vacation spot!)

Das ist wichtig. = “That is important.”
