imageLet’s be real. One of the best things about going to a Spanish speaking country is having the opportunity to hook up with a Latin lovely. But when your Spanish is less than perfect, this can be an obstacle. It is certainly not the case that all Spanish speaking parts of the world have English speakers, and from my own experience of living in Oaxaca, I almost always had to use Spanish with local gays.

Thank Britney that my Spanish has now reached a somewhat conversational level so that I can have more involved communication with local gays in Mexico and elsewhere in the Spanish speaking world, but actually I didn’t do too badly even before I had those Spanish skills. This is simply because the more you practice a language in a certain area, the more you become a proficient speaker, listener, reader, and writer in that area. And well, I got most of my Spanish learning experience on Grindr.

With hardly any knowledge of Spanish, you can become proficient in Grindr Spanish too. Truthfully, guys on Grindr are generally not so imaganitive, so a few stock phrases to use and understand can be very helpful. Save these to your phone and you’ll be able to maximise your Grindr experience wherever you are in Latin America or Spain.
