Spanish Travel Essentials • XSPN 0300
Language is a big deal. There is no way to overemphasize the importance of learning even the bare minimum before you travel to a foreign country—a country where you cannot rely on your own language. If you are an independent traveler (especially of the budget variety) or if you just want to mix with the locals as much as possible, you should definitely try to learn the basics before you go.

• Date:  Oct. 3–19; Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6–8 p.m.
