Encomana el català

The Generalitat de Catalunya has made a commercial promoting the use of Catalan. It's to encourage people to speak in Catalan first before any other language.

Caution: It's very catchy and this tune will get stuck in your head. hehe.




Baker: What can I get you for tea?

Our Hero: I would like a sandwich, please.

Bakers' Assistants: Have one - [they're] very good and very hot.... See More

Baker: Enjoy, and have a good day!

Blonde Skater Chick (w/strong Spanish accent): You spoke to him in Catalan?

Our Hero: Of course! That way I can practice!

Gas Company Deliverymen/Bollywood Chorale: At work! In the street!

Our Hero: At our friend Joan's café!

Swarm of Waiters: The first word, in Catalan!

Florists: A "hello" or a "what would you like"!

Our Hero: Catalan is contagious!

[Final screen: Generalitat de Catalunya. Let's get going: for the language.]


Thanks to maeveenroute whose Facebook I got the link and translation from. :-D
