Some spanish to get the most out of spring break in Mexico

Your spring break will go better in every respect if you know some Spanish phrases and words. Why? Socially, it’s helpful to be able to at least ask people their names and if they’d like to dance. Personally, it helps you to be able to hail a taxi and ask for a drink. Learning these phrases also makes you more culturally fluent. So, here are some useful phrases to make your Mexico vacation not only more fun, but easier as well.
