Galician language guide

Learn to pronounce common words and expressions in Galician

Forvo's language guide helps you to learn and pronounce common words and expressions in Galician.

We have created the guide as part of Tosta, a collaboration project promoting the minority languages of Europe’s Atlantic coast.

The seven languages included in Tosta are Welsh, Basque, Frisian, Scottish Gaelic, Irish, Cornish and Galician. We hope these guides will help you to discover and learn the rich cultural and linguistic heritages of these languages.

Tosta culminates in the Atlantikaldia festival which takes place between September 22 - 25 in Errenteria, in the Basque Country. Forvo will be participating in Atlantikaldia so come along and join us!
