During your trips around Spain or other Spanish speaking countries, do not hesitate to be brave and bold: something which you must not leave sitting in your suitcase for the whole journey is your Spanish vocabulary, especially once you have taken the time to go on a course and learn it. It is really important to get into practice with the words that you have learned and the phrases which will help you to make yourself understood, as the more that you use them the better you will be at using the language in general in real situations. Consequently, you will be able to ask something in an airport or in a train or bus station so that you can get around more easily… in addition to feeling more secure and less lost, it will give you the chance to travel freely without having to depend on help from another person who speaks the language better than you do. This is a real confidence booster for your language skills too!
Travel is an important part of life for many people, and it is something that they not only enjoy but very much desire to do on a large scale.

Whether travel to you means a holiday in a five star resort or backpacking around to get to know the real character of a country, being able to communicate while you do it is absolutely essential. If you want to socialise with others, get help when you need it, or just generally be able to relax and do whatever you want to do while you are away, then having the necessary language skills in place before you set off can be absolutely key to making the experience an enjoyable one.
