"If you do not speak any..." Language Tip by Weener
Language, Barcelona: 43 reviews and 15 photos
If you do not speak any Spanish or the local language of Catalan, the language barrier can sometimes cause a problem. A majority of restaurants have English menu translations, and locals that work along La Rambla speak a little broken English, but not very much. I saw a very frustrated American guy who had problems in a money exchange place who couldn?t understand what he was being told. Be patient and understanding, I don?t know of any English tourist area where workers were able to speak Spanish, so it shouldn?t be expected. It is wise to get a Spanish or Catalan phrase book to get you by in restaurants, shops and hotels.
