Tips for Speaking Spanish Like a Local

Blend in Seamlessly: Tips for Speaking Spanish Like a Local on Your Trip

Planning a trip to a Spanish-speaking country can be both exciting and daunting. On one hand, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture and explore a beautiful country. On the other hand, there is the fear of not being able to communicate effectively with locals. This is where Talking Tourist comes in.


Talking Tourist

Talking Tourist is a unique language learning platform that connects travellers with native speakers to learn the language and culture of the country they are visiting. Unlike traditional language learning methods, Talking Tourist focuses on practical conversation skills that are tailored to your needs as a traveller.

One of the biggest challenges for language learners is the vast differences in accents and dialects between Spanish-speaking countries, and even within a single country. It can be overwhelming when you first try out your newly learnt textbook or app-based language learning. Will they understand me? Did I remember the right word or phrase when I'm put on the spot? With Talking Tourist, you can be sure that you are learning the right accent and vocabulary for the specific country you are visiting.

Learn language with travel-related topics

The platform offers personalised one-to-one lessons focused on travel-related topics. You can learn how to order food in a restaurant, ask for directions, negotiate prices like a local, and more. What you learn will be tailored to you and your specific trip, so you will only learn what is relevant, saving you time, money, and your blushes!

Talking Tourist uses a conversational approach to language learning, which means that you are encouraged to practise speaking the language from the very beginning. This immersive method helps you quickly and confidently communicate with locals and make the most of your travel experience.


Discover all the platforms and languages

The platform recently launched destinations such as Spain, Mexico, or Argentina, with additional locations to be included throughout the year. Whether you are planning a trip to Madrid or Mexico City, Talking Tourist has got you covered.

In conclusion, if you are planning an upcoming trip to a Spanish-speaking country, it's never too late to learn the local language. With Talking Tourist, you can prepare yourself for exactly what you need to know for your trip and make the most of your travel experience. Don't let language barriers hold you back from exploring the world!
