Online BBC Article on Occitan Language

The BBC website rather frequently has articles about linguistics that might be of interest to travelers. The latest is on Occitan, a regional language still used in the southern part of the country, including the Dordogne. It was nice to read that Occitan is now being taught in some schools.

Very interesting! Thanks -- we like to pick up local dictionaries when we travel and found that France is a goldmine of languages I thought were dead, but aren't!
