In this Spanish video lesson we will learn useful Spanish vocabulary to help you manage when traveling in Spain or Latin America. Repeat the words after me to work on your Spanish pronunciation and to help you remember the vocabulary better. In the next Spanish lesson we will use this vocabulary to practice buying a travel ticket and asking for travel information in Spanish. Asking for travel information is another one of those free opportunities to practice your Spanish with native speakers whilst you are traveling in a Spanish speaking country and we should always make the most of these chances to improve our conversation skills. It can be a bit daunting the first time you speak in Spanish with someone in a train station, bus station, airport, etc, but try not to think too much about it and just jump right in. Don’t be afraid to ask the other person to speak slower or to repeat sentences if you haven’t understood everything. It is better to do that than pretend you have understood and waste everyone’s time. Be confident and try to enjoy every encounter!
