So I don't speak Spanish, although....

Jump to last reply

I AM trying to learn some basic phrases. My previous traveling has usually been in places where I have SOME language skills (I can get by in French, German and Hebrew), or didn't have too much trouble learning (Italy). I'm working on Spanish (using Livemocha and some other freebie stuff on the web), but I'm also reading that in southern Spain, I might not find as much English. Is this true?

I find I really mostly need common phrases ("where's the bathroom?" "can I have the check, please?" would be numbers 1 and 2) and then menu/coffee shop/bar vocab. (Google Translate on my phone is a godsend).

Should I be okay? Any recommendations of good sources of phrases and vocab I'll really need?

Thanks as always,
Alice
