Spanish In Your Pocket

Brush up on your lingo with these must-know phrases before traveling to a Spanish-speaking country! 

Biggest regret when it comes to my education? Not making it past Spanish II in high school. Besides a few phrases that include “baño” and “cerveza”, my Spanish vocabulary really doesn’t surpass the basics…sometimes troublesome, as direct conversation is what one is typically faced with when traveling to a Spanish-speaking country. By no means is fluency a must in order to enjoy your trip, but it is helpful to be a bit savvy when it comes to the local dialect. I’m two days away from Puerto Rico and our upcoming #FPLETSMOVE event, so I asked my co-worker Sarah (Puerto Rican born and bred!) to enlighten me with must-know phrases that’ll help break the language barrier and make my experience a smoother one. Consider the below chart your mini English-to-Spanish pocket dictionary:

  1. “what do you recommend?” translates to “qué recomiendas?”.
    the “tú” is not necessary there! :)
    good luck!
