Start by Learning Some Common Spanish Phrases...

Start by learning some common Spanish phrases, such as how to greet and farewell people, and what to say at different times of the day.

With this quick audio tutorial you can also practice welcoming someone in Spanish and saying sorry (if only for your beginner Spanish!)
