I'm studying in Mallorca in a year, and I would like to teach myself some Catalan before I go. I've done some quick searches for books, but at least on Amazon, the pickings seem pretty slim, and the reviews are kind of lukewarm. Does anyone know of a good book for a Catalan beginner, with a CD? One geared towards English speakers would be good, but anything geared towards Spanish speakers would also be fine.

Anyone used Teach Yourself Catalan by Alan Yates and Anna Poch? Would you recommend it?

Thanks for any advice you can give me!
