Catalan language under threat? - school and streaming woes
Catalan is a vibrant, living language with 10 million speakers and a history stretching back to the Middle Ages, but recent statistics show a decline in use and language activists say it needs more protection, not least in classrooms and on online streaming platforms. Guifré Jordan and Gerard Escaich Folch join Lorcan Doherty to discuss. Elin Haf Gruffydd Jones, president of the European Language Equality Network, and Òscar Escuder, president of Plataforma per la Llengua, give their views.
