Catalan and Spanish are the two official languages in Catalonia. In Barcelona, both are widely spoken. Amazing but true, you will rarely find a taxi driver who speaks English, or if you ask someone in the street it is not very common to speak fluent English. It's a big gap. If you speak some Spanish you will come along very well, and if you want to get more immersed in the Catalan culture it is wise to learn some words before your arrival.
