88. I don't think she knew what language it was at all, she only heard my nephew speak about

previously voting from Spain.

That's when she put two and two together and got negative seven.

I agree, no one would mistake Valencian Catalan with Castilian having heard both being spoken.

I have a hard enough time keeping up with them with my high-school Spanish when they speak Castilian, I catch about every fifth word, and get blown into the weeds when they switch to Catalan; it is just so different.

Have you ever tried to learn Basque? That's one language I love to listen to, but I understand it's a nightmare to learn.
