Spanish: Phrases > Simple conversations

The sentences presented in this section will help you with the most basic expressions in Spanish, such as "good day" and "thank you". It will certainly not be enough in order to start a conversation in Spanish, however being able to say a few words in the country's native language will evoke sympathy and understanding.

Quite some people in Spain and Latin America speak English quite well as a second language, however only in the larger cities. Still you are advised to purchase a language course before traveling.
