Learn Spanish for TravelIf you’re planning a trip to a Spanish-speaking country and you don’t speak the language, you may want to consider learning at least basic words and phrases to help you get around your destination and communicate with the locals. Although many people in various destinations around the world do speak some English, it’s still advisable to make an attempt to communicate in the native tongue while you’re abroad. Doing so can not only help to gain the goodwill of those around you, but also enriches your travel experience and can be a valuable safety tool in case you find yourself in an emergency situation with no English speakers nearby.

Because Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world, making an effort to learn some Spanish is likely to come in handy not just for one trip, but for many future travels. These resources can help you to gain a working knowledge of the basics, and can be referred to again and again, including while you’re on a trip to Spain, Mexico, or another destination in Central or South America.
