Polite Requests in Catalan

Jump to last reply

Hello...

Heading to Barcelona soon and trying to learn a little Catalan. My Spanish is acceptable (but not great).

I'm trying to determine how to ask when I want something. In Spanish I would use Quisiera/Quisieramos (Subjunctive) to be ultra-polite, but various guide books as well as translation apps have it:

Voldria/Voldriem

This appears to be a mistranslation of "I would like..." leading to the Conditional.

What is the correct way to politely ask for something.

On the other hand, have I been doing it wrong in Spanish all these years? :-)

Thanks.
ssander
