L’1dex ( 20-05-2015 STEPHANE RIAND Le droit à l’autodétermination demandé par les Catalans s’invite dans le Parlement danois, qui demande à  l’Espagne d’initier un dialogue avec la Catalogne. L’Assemblée Nationale Catalane danoise a réussi à convaincre les députés danois de se pencher sur la question catalane.

ARA   08-05-2015   LIZ CASTRO     Often, when people find out I'm American, they say "Wow, I'd love to learn how to speak English, I've been taking classes for years but I still can't get by." They look at me and my kids with envy since we learned English naturally, without classes.

Wert, the ignorant minister

ARA 06-05-2015 CARLES CAPDEVILA Here we go again. Minister of Education, Culture and Sport José Ignacio Wert, the "hispanicizer" of Catalan children (1), strikes back and now wants to require, by law, that schools inform all parents about their right to request Spanish-medium teaching for their children in Catalonia.
