Spanish: Phrases > Greeting & introducing yourself

The sentences presented in this section will help you with the most basic expressions in Spanish. 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.
