Spanish for Travel: 25 Phrases for Travel and Beginners 

Do you want to learn Spanish for travel fast? Check out these 25 phrases all themed around Spanish for travel- the perfect context to start learning a language. When you learn a new language for travel, you learn all the vocabulary and grammar you need in context. Learn enough words and phrases, and they will start overlapping. You can then start creating your own sentences.

Pick a new theme each week, for five weeks. Try using vocabulary columns and mastering the theme for the week. After studying the list, take a piece of paper and write the words and phrases on a column in Spanish. Try to recall the English, writing the equivalents. Do this again, giving the Spanish.

I also love the Goldlist method. Copy the words and phrases as you see them in a notebook. Look them over, and see which ones you can easily recall. Make a new page with the Spanish phrases you still need to learn and their equivalents. Keep going with this and watch your skills grow.

Playlists are great to learn Spanish for travel, too. I love recording the words and phrases I need to complete a task. You can have a native record for you on a site like Rhinospike, too.
