No matter where you are, this will always be a handy phrase to have around.
In your travels, you will run into many new experiences and things. This phrase will never leave you wondering what that unique Mexican souvenir is or what is in your food.
Be ready to pose for those perfect vacation photos you will upload to Facebook. You want to be in some of them, right?
It is a major tradition in Mexico to say good morning, afternoon (and all its variations) to friends, strangers, and even foes.
It never hurts to say a heartfelt “thank you” when someone has served you, given you directions, or any amiability.
It is possible you can make mistakes or break some cultural norm. No problem, just apologize. A variation to this is also “lo siento.” This literally means “I feel it,” but it’s taken as a “sorry.”
This phrase comes in handy when you’re a fluent speaker or just a curious traveler who wants to learn the language during his travels.
