The most 10 basic phrases in Spanish for every visitor to Spain.

The most 10 basic phrases in Spanish for every visitor to Spain.

You’re going to Spain for vacation, perhaps for business and you promised yourself to use Living Language but couldn’t find the time or energy to begin, to learn how to improvise making sentences, let alone converse with native speakers in their own language.

Whether stereotypes are true or not, Spanish appreciate you making the effort to try to speak their language. And while a good number of Spanish people have a very basic knowledge of English, especially in touristy cities like Madrid or Malaga, it makes sense to be able to communicate in Spanish for the most simple things. But above all, it will make you feel proud!
