make sure if you want to write between the quotes that you don't get inside the '[/QUOTE]' marks


and if you're still not sure you did it right, check by hitting 'preview post' before submit

In our pueblo Castallano and Valenciano are both spoken. The older people speak Valenciano but most of the children learn both languages. I am learning Castallano but can understand my elderly neighbour when he speaks to me in Valenciano...however I don't think he understand me

Default Re: Regional differences

Is it necessary to call Spanish Castellano in Spain? I understand that by calling it Spanish might irritate people from the regions but do most Spanish-speakers themselves call the Spanish spoken in Spain as Castellano?

It might irritate them if you call it Spanish - particulary in the areas where they have their own language.

I've heard it called both Español & Castellano around here

I'll ask one of my students (if I remember)

Yes they do. A lot make a joke though, and call it Cristiano.
