Catalan and Spanish, UIB languages
There are two official languages coexisting in the Balearic Islands: Catalan and Spanish. Both languages are normally used in all areas of public and private life. Spanish is one of the most widely used languages in the world and it is a Romance language, like Catalan, which means that for someone who already speaks Spanish, learning Catalan is not difficult. This indifferent use of Catalan and Spanish can be also found in UIB.
However, the use of other foreign languages is also usual at the UIB when it comes to research stays, practicum or Master’s final project or thesis.
In order to help people adapt to both languages, the UIB organises Catalan and Spanish courses for Mobility Programme students.
