Spanish for Travel

A Beginner’s Guide for your trip to Spain

(or other Spanish speaking countries)

So you’re traveling to Spain but you don’t speak Spanish (or you only remember a little from your high school days). Chances are, if you speak English you may be able to get by.  But why not pick up a little bit of the language before you go.  Even if it’s just a word or two, it will ingratiate you with the people in your host country and may even help you out of some sticky situations :)

Here’s our list of the most useful phrases if you’re going to travel to Spain.  If you want a bit more practice sign up for our free Survival Spanish series which you’ll find these words and more spoken by a native speaker in video format:
