A 720-page book with 100 lessons, 1 MP3 CD with 2,335 files and 4 audio CDs lasting 3 hrs 45 min
This Occitan course introduces you to all its variants and dialects. The first part teaches standard Languedocian – a variety that helps you understand most other Occitan dialects quite easily since the Languedoc is a central Occitan-speaking region. The course then examines the main six dialects in Occitan-speaking areas (Auvergnat, Gascon, Languedocian, Limousin, Provençal and Vivaro-Alpin) spoken in three countries (France, Spain and Italy). One set of lessons also introduces you to medieval Occitan.
Local actors playing a proactive role in promoting their language have been included in this work, having contributed both to proofreading and the recordings featured in this MP3 CD and audio CD box set. The recordings include all the texts in Occitan and the translation exercises. These progressively more challenging texts have been recorded by professional native speakers.
This publication was sponsored by the Délégation Générale à la Langue Française et aux Langues de France (French Ministry of Culture) and l’Union Latine.
