"Go with some vocab... you'll be glad you did..." Language Tip by ginettissima

Language, Barcelona: 43 reviews and 15 photos

I concur with all the other VT tippers who suggest getting to know some of the local language before going to Barcelona. I don't speak Spanish, but I do speak other Romance languages, and that helped me tremendously just in the sense that I understood most of what was spoken or written. Without that, it would have been hard to manage as not everyone speaks English. Go knowing some words and phrases and Spanish and Catalan.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
