Spanish for Pilgrims
Learning how to speak Spanish is not essential on the Camino de Santiago.
Knowing a little bit of ‘Spanish for Pilgrims’ will however come in handy in a lot of situations.
We met pilgrims in Santiago that really needed our translation skills to get them out of specific situations.
Learn a little bit of Spanish by focusing only on what you should know as a pilgrim.
No matter how little or how much Spanish you know, don’t forget that the most important language tool you have is your non-verbal communication: smile, be kind and support your non-verbal communication with ‘please’ (por favor) and ‘thank you’ (gracias). You’ll be just fine!
