If you go to any country that does not speak your language it is polite to at least learn the essential phrases. I would personally Learn as much as I could before travelling and then use my time there to learn about the culture, language, and cuisine. There is no reason to travel to anywhere unless the you want to learn about it. People shouldn't travel just to see pretty things it should broaden their understanding of the world, or at least thats my opinion.
I completely agree with 25 . Try an blend with the culture and learn the basics if possible, but I have been in the position where I had no idea how to speak the language but made it through other means of communication. Pointing, gestures , facial expression , et, but this was in medical emergencies where planning ahead of time wasn't an option.
That's hilarious xD How does she think she can manage to read their lips when Spanish words are coming out of them?
