Spanish language roundup, 22 November 2009: more radio and television stations in the United States, Spanish becomes "abnormal" in Barcelona

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Lots of links today related to Spanish, most about the US and one about Spain itself.

The next one here is about another radio station (this time in Houston) switching from English to Spanish. Some switch from Spanish to English though and I haven't seen any numbers indicating an overall trend either way.

One more link here is a bit more about the importance of Univision's partnership with YouTube.

Finally we have this one in Spanish protesting a vote in Barcelona calling Catalan the "unique and exclusive language of "normal" use in all the activities of the city", which the article says effectively makes Spanish an "abnormal" language, in spite of being the language spoken by 70% of the city's residents.
