    Default Spain

    Hi!!

    Spain is a country that welcomes thousands, probably millions of tourists every summer.

    Anyways, you should have a basic dictionary with you all the time, since the language is very different.

    In restaurants and hotels you will most certainly find bilingual staff, but the dictionary is always necessary (a pocket one).

    The more you speak in Spanish, the better off you are. While you would definitely be able to find people who speak English, people are generally more willing to help if you speak in their native language...plus you would learn a lot.

    There are lots of good sites dedicated to specific words and phrases in each country, just try a simple internet search with "regional phrases from spain" or something like that.

    Good luck and have a great trip!
