Description The aim of this paper is to present an analysis of the most common errors in Catalan as a Foreign Language (CLE in Catalan) based on the spoken interlanguage of a group of Czech university students. To conduct this analysis, we review the main research trends in Applied Linguistics within the field of error analysis (Lado, 1957; Corder, 1967; Selinker, 1972), specifically in second language acquisition, and attempt to establish the most suitable criteria to classify these errors. After observing the students’ speaking per-formance in our lessons, we find that the majority of errors in Catalan affect morphosyn-tax, but also vocabulary, phonetics and phonology. The conclusions of this paper give us some insight into the difficulties encountered by Czech learners of Catalan and the chal-lenges that teachers of Catalan as a Foreign Language have to face.
