How to Order Food in Spain Like a Local

How to Order Food in Spain Like a Local

– When I first moved to
Spain, my Spanish was terrible and that really inhibited my ability to explore the off-the-beaten-path
and on-the-beaten-path tapas bars and restaurants
of this country, but I had a secret weapon, my wife, Yoly. – Exactly, so I helped James
enjoy his gastronomic passion by teaching him the
most important phrases, that he needed to just walk in a bar, in a Spanish tapas bar, or a restaurant and just handle himself like a Spaniard. – And we’re gonna teach
you those phrases today, so you can hit all those places, we’re gonna give you lots of tips, so you can feel totally
comfortable and totally local in the bars and restaurants of Spain. (lively Spanish guitar music) Hey Spain lovers, my name’s James Blick. – And I’m Yolanda Martin. – And welcome to Spain Revealed, this channel is all about helping you explore and understand Spain like a local and there’s nothing more local, than handling yourself like a local in a tapas bar or restaurant, that’s what today is all about. You know, in the little villages of Spain, the neighborhoods, the kind of
places you really wanna hit, the really authentic places,
they’re off-the-beaten-path, there may not be a lot of English spoken or whatever language you speak, so you know, having some Spanish will really mean you
can access those places and have a super deep
experience, while you’re there and even in some of the bigger, you know, a little more big city places, if you know a little bit of Spanish, you’ll get the cred of the waiter, – Yeah.
– so we’re gonna head. – You get the kudos.
– You get the kudos, exactly. – Yeah.
– So Yoly, obviously a native speaker,
I’m not a native speaker, but I’ve learned Spanish and so we’re gonna give you those key tips and so where are we going, Yoly? – We’re going to Casa Toni, one of our favorite places to hang out and you know, have food
and drinks in Madrid. – Exactly, it’s like our
tapas bar living room and that’s where we’re gonna go and teach you all these key tips. Okay, so here we are in Casa
Toni, our favorite tapas bar, perfect place to learn
how to handle yourself and speak in a tapas bar or restaurant. Well, the first thing, when you walk into a tapas
bar or restaurant in Spain is, you need somewhere
to sit, you need a table, so how do I ask for a table
for two in Spanish, Yoly? – Well, I’m glad you asked, you say, “Una mesa para dos, por favor.” “Una mesa para dos, por favor.” – A table for two, please. So you walk in the door and
that’s the first thing you say. Now, a little, well, what if
you’re traveling on your own? “Una mesa, por favor.” – Very good. – You’ve just come through the door. Now the thing is, in a place
like Casa Toni, like this one, you actually don’t have
to ask for a table, you just kinda come and sit down, ’cause they’re quite rustic and informal, but in, you know, kind
of more elegant places, you will have to ask for a table. Here’s the thing, often
you wanna stay at the bar, you don’t want a table, because there’s more action at the bar, it’s kinda more fun, it’s more animated, you can see that there’s people behind us standing at the bar or
sitting on stools at the bar, that’s very typical of Madrid, you know, whereas in Barcelona, for example, you generally will always
want a table at a tapas bar, there’s not as much tradition
there of standing at the bar. So if we wanna stay at the
bar, what would we say, Yoly? Nos quedamos en la barra. Okay, perfect. So we’re either sitting
down or at the bar, but now we need a menu.
– Right. – Here at Casa Toni, the menus
are generally on the table, but you will often find that menus won’t necessarily be available, they’re sometimes a bit random and, – Hard to get sometimes.
– yeah, hard to get, they might be hidden somewhere. – Yes.
– So how would I ask for the menu? La carta, por favor. – That’s right.
– So that’s how you ask for the menu. But there’s another
word that you will see, that looks like menu in English and that’s “menú”, but that doesn’t mean the physical menu, the “menú” is actually the “menú del día” or a kind of a fixed price,
multiple course meal, that’s what “menú” means, so “menú” does not mean the physical menu, just keep that in mind.
– Yeah. – The word for physical menu is “carta”. So, “La carta, por favor.” – That’s it.
– Exactly. Okay, so we’ve got the
menu, but I want some wine. – Sure.
– So, how do we get the wine list? “La carta de vinos, por favor.” – That’s right.
– What you’ll often find is the wine list won’t be
just given to you by default, sometimes you’ll have to ask for it, so if you don’t see any
wine on the main menu, then yeah, you have to ask for
La carta de vinos por favor.. But if you just wanna have a glass, often the glasses that are available are not on the wine list and sometimes they’re
not written anywhere, – Yeah, sure.
– but it’s just, the waiter just has them in their head. – Yep.
– So how would I ask, you know, what wines are
available by the glass? – Well, listen to this one,
“¿Que vino tenéis por copa?”. So again, “¿Que vino tenéis por copa?”. “¿Que vino tenéis por copa?” That’s right.
– So that’s a way to say, look, what wines have
you got by the glass? That’s like a little bit
of a pro level there, if you’re feeling courageous
and so you can find out, but I tell you what, it’s great, you know, being able
to order by the glass, because you can try a
variety of different wines and don’t worry if you
get a little bit confused, because you’re never gonna pay more than about four or so
euros, maximum, you know, so if you make mistake, no big deal. But, here’s a little tip, they will be probably a higher quality of, or a bigger range of wines
available by the bottle, so there might be three or
four available by the glass, but by the bottle on the wine list, there might be 50
– Yeah. – and so it might be
the more simple wines, that are available by the glass and so if you wanna really
drink some great wine, then push the boat out, get a bottle, look, if you’re gonna have
a couple of glasses each, it’s worth it.
– Yeah, why not? – Right? And remember, the wine list will always be divided by the region. Okay, so we wanna order our wine now. – Sure.
– You know, how do I order a bottle of red wine? “Quería una botella de
vino tinto, por favor.” – Or just “Una botella
de vino tinto por favor.” “Una botella de vino tinto por favor.” – Or “vino blanco”, white wine. “Una botella de vino blanco por favor.” Okay, so we’re good there. What if I know the region I want? Those of you who are regular watchers will have heard of the wine region, Rioja, we made a video about that, well, Yoly filmed it,
– Sure. – and I presented it. So what if I wanted to
get a bottle of Rioja, that famous wine region, for example? – Then you say, “Una botella
de rioja, por favor.” “Una botella de rioja, por favor.” That’s right.
– Okay, we’re not gonna go by the bottle, we’re gonna go by the glass, so I want a glass of red
wine, how do I ask for that? “Una copa de vino, por favor.” – That’s right.
– But how would I say white wine or red wine? – Then you say, “Una copa de vino tinto.” or “Una copa de vino tinto.” – Exactly, “Una copa de vino
tinto.”, “Una copa de vino blanco.” Here’s the thing, the
word for red in Spanish is “rojo”, but you don’t say “vino rojo”, – No.
– red wine, you don’t say that, you say “vino tinto”. – That’s right.
– That’s a little key there. – Yeah. – Okay, so look, I don’t
even want wine, I want beer. – Yes.
– How do I get beer? – Beer, well, a beer
this size, small size, you say “Una caña, por favor”, so “Una caña, por favor”. “Una caña por favor” – And look, you can ask for
“Una cerveza, por favor”, – Yeah. – but you’re gonna sound
a little more local, if you ask for “Una caña por favor”, which is asking for a draft beer. Now obviously if you want a bottled beer, it’s a little different,
– Sure. – then you have to ask for, well, I would just ask for “una cerveza” in that case,
– Yeah. – What if this is a little small? What if I’m used to, you
know, I’m a Northern European, I’m used to very large beers and my entire hand covers
this tiny thimble of beer, that we drink regularly in Spain. – It’s not that little.
– What would I ask for? – Well, then you get a “doble”, so “Una doble por favor”. “Una doble por favor”. – Which just means double the size, – Yeah.
– and I always say don’t order anything larger than that, because if it’s available
larger than that, you’re probably in a tourist trap, ’cause we don’t drink
beers larger than this, alright.
– No. – But stick to the “cañas” it’s fine, you can keep changing. Okay, we’re almost
finished with the liquids, we’re almost totally liquided out, – Oh, yeah.
– We have wine, we have beer. – Water.
– Water, water, now this one is easy, but it has a couple of wrinkles
in there, so listen close. Alright, how do I ask for water, please? “Agua, por favor.” – Or “Un vaso de agua, por favor”. “Un vaso de agua, por favor”. – A glass of water,
– Hm-mm. – or what about a bottle of water? “Una botella de agua, por favor.” – That’s right.
– Now here’s the thing, we are highly environmentally
conscious these days, bottled water is a
disaster for the planet, as I hope you all agree,
so what about tap water? How do I ask for tap water? “Agua de grifo, por favor.” – That’s right.
– The word, “grifo” means tap. Okay, but here’s the thing,
if you order tap water in a bar or restaurant in
Spain, what Yoly and I find, ’cause we often do that
to save the environment, we often find that we
get a little pushback, they’ll say that, “Oh
no, the pipes are bad,” or, you know,
– The tap’s broken. – The tap’s broken,
– Yeah. – and they’ll try and
push the mineral water, because obviously they wanna
push the bill price up, so if it gets weird, if
it gets hard, you know, you might end up with a bottle of water, but at least you tried.
– Yes. – The thing is though, if you’re
in Barcelona, for example, the tap water doesn’t taste very good, so in Barcelona, you are gonna
be drinking bottled water and that’s perfectly normal,
– That’s fine. – and that’s fine, but here in Madrid, the water is amazing. Okay, so we’ve ordered all
the liquids in the world but now we need to order some food. – Yes, please. – So it’s time to order food, we’ve got a menu in front of us, but a menu is gonna be divided in Spain, depending a little bit on the region, but there’s kind of three
terms you’re gonna see and what are they, Yoly? – Those are “tapas”, “medias
raciones” and “raciones”. – Exactly.
– Yeah. – So I mean, you might even see in some bars or restaurants in Seville, you might see three columns on your menu, first column says “tapas”, second column says “medias raciones”, – Yeah.
– Well, “medias raciones”. – Yeah, or “medias”. – Or “medias” and the third column says “raciones” and you’re just getting
bigger as you go along. Now depending on the region,
you might only see one of those or you might see two of
those, for example, in Madrid, you generally won’t see “tapas” on a menu, you’ll see “medias
raciones” and “raciones”. So on the menu here in
Casa Toni, for example, maybe I wanna get a plate of calamari and some anchovies, some fried anchovies, so how would I order
“raciones” of those, Yoly? “Una ración de calamares, por favor.” – A plate, a ration, a
“ración” of calamari. “Una ración de boquerones, por favor.” – Which is anchovies.
– Yes. – What if I wanted a half “ración” or a “tapa” of “boquerones” of anchovies? “Media ración de boquerones, por favor.” Okay, so you’ve been eating, but you just haven’t ordered enough, you wanna order more food and it’s actually quite a good idea, you should never order
all your food at once in a tapas bar, order it bit by bit. So how do I say to the waiter, I wanna order something extra? “Quería pedir algo más, por favor.” I wanna order something extra and then, you know, you go back up to, you know, step four or whatever it is and they bring the menu again and you order off the menu again and you ask for your
“calamares” and “boquerones” or anything like that. What if I’m really thirsty, I need another glass of wine, or I just wanna get really drunk, so how do I order more alcohol? “Otra copa de vino, por favor.” – Another glass of wine.
– Another glass of wine. “Otra caña de vino, por favor.” That one. So, that’s how you do it or you could just start again and say “Una copa de
vino tinto, por favor”, – Hm-mm.
– red wine, if you have been drinking “vino blanco”. So you’ve got your food,
you’ve got more food, you’ve got more wine, we’re stuffed, dessert, what is the word for dessert? “postre” So if you wanna get dessert, you might say what desserts are there? “¿Que postres tenéis?” Because often you’ll find that they won’t necessarily
be written down, particularly if you’re having
that (speaking in Spanish), that fixed price lunchtime menu, the desserts won’t
necessarily be written down, they’ll be in the waiter’s head, – Yes.
– so you’ll have to ask and then they’ll rattle them all off and you have to remember, so they can get a little bit stressful, – A bit tricky.
– a bit tricky, okay. So we’ve had the dessert,
we’ve had our drinks, we’ve had our food,
now comes the sad part, we have to pay.
– Pay for it. – Of course, the one
thing to always remember, you always pay at the end in tapas bars, you don’t pay as you go, so you know, don’t feel
like you have to be paying, you know, the whole time. So how do we ask for the bill, Yoly? “La cuenta, por favor.” – That’s right.
– There’s other ways to say it, but that’s the
simplest way to say it, – Yeah.
– The words are kinda easy. “La cuenta, por favor.” So they bring the bill, if
you’re not sure about tipping, check out my video about 10 Tips For Traveling Through Spain, because there I talk about
tipping and how we tip in Spain. Okay, so we’ve paid, we’ve tipped or not and so what do we do next? I mean, do we just walk out, or? – We should say thank you, right. – We should say thank you,
– Yeah. – we should compliment them
– Yes. – on the quality of the food.
– Yeah. – So you know, maybe we wanna go back and we wanna leave a nice impression, – Sure.
– so how would we say that? – We say “Muchas gracias.
¡Estaba muy rico!” “Muchas gracias. ¡Estaba muy rico!” – That’s right.
– So thank you very much and it was delicious. I’m gonna make sure to write out or maybe, Yoly, you–
– Maybe I can do it, yeah. – You are Spanish,
– Sure. – I’ll probably make a
few spelling mistakes, we will write out in the description below all the Spanish words we’ve
used, so you can read those. Question, I would love to know what more language videos like this you would really like us to do together, we love making videos together and you know, are there any scenarios you would love to know how to negotiate? You know, not just
learning the basic lingo, but kind of with a little
cultural commentary around it, so you really know how to dive into Spain and really explore it like
a local in an authentic way. So please leave us notes about
that in the comments below, please subscribe, if you
wanna see more videos about how to explore Spain like a local and thank you for watching,
it’s been great to see you guys. So salud!
– Salud! – And see you again.
– Salud. – ¡Hasta luego! ¡Ciao! ¡Hasta luego!

  1. Would you like us to do more language videos? Or more videos together? If so, what about? Let us know! 🙌

  2. I love this video because of the teaching part and the subtitles. Please add this in all your videos. Just a portion to all the videos would be great.

  3. Me gusta ver estos vídeos porque de la misma forma aprendo un poco más inglés escuchando las explicaciones de James.
    Ojalá vuestro canal llegue a más gente aún porque es muy bueno! ^^

  4. Yolanda is so nice! James is one lucky guy! You complement each other just great. Also I like when you say "we" when you speak about Spaniards. I used to learn French so Spanish seem very easy for me. Great vid, as always!

  5. No hace falta pedir mesa, sólo siéntate en la primera que veas, llama al camarero con un "ahora cuando puedas". Pides tu bebida y comida, al acabar lo llamas con "la cuenta cuando puedas" y listo. Al menos es así aquí en Sevilla xD

  6. no se como he acabado aquí jajaja pero me parece mazo curioso peña intentando parecer nativa de español, en extremadura la la grande es un tubo de cerveza

  7. I'm subscribing just because of the tears of laughter that lady in the background gave me. 😂🤣

    No seriously, thanks so much for your channel! I'm born & raised in the States, just outside of Washington DC… can't wait to travel abroad! I love studying Spanish (although I don't know vosotros…do I really need it in Spain?)…I love learning the culture! I'm hoping to one day visit, and I really appreciate your videos!

    Quick question, why should we say "cupa" for wine instead of "vaso"? Just curious…

    You two are adorable, btw! ❤️🤗

  8. I’m going to Spain this summer but my Spanish is Mexican

    How come you guys don’t say “Could I..”

    Ex. “Puedo tener la carta por favor”

    Is that okay to say?

  9. Something I've found as a beginner is this kind of scenario which I think would be great to see you act out and solve! Basically, just asking for water (or whatever) isn't normally the end of the conversation! There are some very common responses the answers to which would be so useful to learn and get used to! So, here's the problem that I always have in such simple scenarios as asking for, say, a coffee and a water. I pluck my courage up and say "Un cafe Americano y un agua por favor"….then the waiter/waitress will say something back which I won't catch and I'll have to resort to my single most-used Spanish phrase: "Lo siento pero no hablo Espanol!" Hehe 🙂 I think being prepared for those kinds of situations will be hugely beneficial! Things such as "con gas?" or (as you mention in this video "botella" or "copa". This kind of thing happens to me ALL THE TIME! Lol 🙈😂. PS Keep up the fantastic content, my wife and I absolutely love Spain, not long returned from Christmas break in Malaga, and heading to Madrid in April, can't wait!

  10. Thanks for such great videos. Im visiting madrid next month. How might i ask for vegetarian tapas? Is there such a thing?

  11. So informative! I’m learning so much though your videos, lots of gratitude from me. You both must do more videos together 🙂👍🏼

  12. Great video but I wonder why you use the imperfect 'queria' rather than the present 'quiero'? Doesn't that mean 'I wanted'? I've also seen 'quisiera' used but doesn't seem very common. Maybe I'll stick with 'me pone'!

  13. Thank you for this and your other videos. Heading to Spain in late March and I'm now more confident and comfortable in my ability to get around and manage some basic interactions. You two are awesome….and totally adorable!!

  14. Hi There! I have a quick question I was hoping to get tour thoughts on :). I am traveling to Spain for the first time in 2 weeks(Barcelona for a few days before heading North :D), and while I will hopefully be able to get away with the little Spanish that I know I was wondering, would it be appropriate when talking to locals, whether in a restaurant, market, or anywhere really to ask in Spanish if they speak any English? A bit of an odd question, but I just wanted to check and see if you had any insight if it is an annoyance to locals when tourists come and ask if they speak any English. Thank you!!

  15. How about a video on ordering a menú? De primero? Por primero? and Quiero/ Quería / Me gustría… I always get a bit confused when it's my turn to order, even if they understand me alright, I'd still like to say it in the proper, most common way. Gracias X

  16. Hi, really found your video helpful! Loved the subtitles and going over the proper prononciation. How should I dress in Barcelona/Madrid Do's and Dont's please. Traveling there at the of March from California and dont want to be too casual.

  17. Estoy estudiando español en la escuela, es mi asignatura favorita. Este video es mejor que la mayoría de los otros videos en español en YouTube. P.S. no soy el mejor en escribir en español pero lo intenté

  18. I was looking at that nosey girl in the background wondering what she was saying to el otro tío 😂😂😂

  19. Para la.cerveza, si quieres jna cerveza grande siempre es mejor pedir una jarra de cerveza. Yo no he escuchado en ningun lado de españa pedir una doble…. y mira que bebo cerveza.

  20. Saludos…you don't need to ask for a table at a Tapas bar if you do not want, standing by the bar is perfectly ok. I also believe there is an additional charge if you sit at a table…

  21. It would be great to talk about getting a train – sorting out tickets etc. Because the cities are fantastic to base yourself but maybe there’s a great village or a smaller city close by that’s worth a look at. Some tips around that would be useful from a local’s perspective.

  22. – ¿Cuál es el 'vino de la casa'?
    – un Rioja fantástico. Mire, aquí tengo la botella.
    – De acuerdo, una copa de 'vino de la casa' entonces.
    No siempre es bueno, pero en muchos bares suelen tener muy buen 'vino de la casa'.

  23. Yollie and James, you two rock!! Thanks so much for your videos. We are now well prepared for our trip to Spain, starting this Tuesday.

  24. You guys rock. I love you both. James is ace and Yolanda is super sexy. Content is excellent and your vids are really good. Keep it up guys 😁

  25. Another possibility for beer is a recent(ish) borrowing from Italian: birra. It won't work in other Spanish-speaking countries, but in Spain it's understood to mean "whatever beer is popular locally".

  26. "La carta, por favor" is fine, but you can also ask for "el menú, por favor". In fact, the "carta" title ussually is "Menú". If you want "medú del día", you should ask like that: "menú del día". For wines is just "carta de vinos", not "menú de vinos".

  27. Asking for a bigger beer as "una doble", I think its a local idiom.. I would ask for "una jarra". In North Spain (Basc country) you can also ask for a smaller one as "zurito".

  28. We use to call fried anchovilles "anchoas (fritas)". And "boquerones", the anchovies prepared as in the South Spain, with vinegar (white anchovies).

  29. Love this video! I'm learning Spanish phrases for when my hubby and I visit Spain in July. He appreciates alcoholic drinks, but I prefer non-alcoholic ones. Do bars serve non-alcoholic drinks or cocktails? If so, how does one order non-alcoholic drinks in a bar? Thank you!

  30. 4:09 First time in my life I've ever heard that expression… and my father loved wine (and my mother). What you usually hear is: "¿Cuál es el vino de la casa?"
    11:22 You forgot to ask for the "carta de postres"…
    11:58 You don't even need to speak for this. Just wave your hand in the air as if you were signing an invoice.
    12:33 You forgot another real scenario: "Menuda mierda de comida. Antes muerto que volver aquí".

  31. My spanish teacher about 12 years ago was a madrileña and she taught me a large beer is called una jarra, is this word out of style nowadays?

  32. Thank you very much! Great video! Can you please make the video about driving habits of Spanish people and also how to talk to police and ask for directions. Thx in advance! Regards from Moscow.

  33. I’m going to Spain in a month. I just found your channel and I am really enjoying the videos. I have not gone through all of them yet. I’d love to see one with every day phases in Spanish like; where do I get the bus/taxi, train. Bathroom facilities, grocery store, police, hospital, pharmacy.

  34. One thing i dislike in Spain are the bars… why do they all have to be so right and full of 100's people trap in a tiny bar. It makes it feel uncomfortable. Why would i want to have a stranger be near and touching me at a bar if the place is so tight. I prefer a open space where it is not as if your going to unable to breath properly.

  35. I have also notice that many people in Spain bars are all littered with rubbish on the floor. paper to tooth-stick and so on. It rather feel un healthy. Imaged having that rubish all over the place in a restaurant kitchen (Discusting and un-healthy wise). Try figure that out. I come from a Country where you show (manners) show respect for the involvement and show respect for others by throwing your rubish in a rubbish bin. It is why Rubbish bins are design for. Not to littered around and careless for your own country environment. I think this needs to change in Spain. I just feel that people are not caring for the environment other then throw rusbish on the floor. In some countries if you do that you get into trouble.. Obviously you want to keep your country clean and not careless. By the way its good that Spain has soo much variety foods.. In Australia we dont have as much food variety as Spain does. So i will give Spain a good point because they have so many variety food plates around. But talking about the rusbish is pretty poor when i see someone in spain who careless to throw rubbish on the floor. i wonder if they also do that in the streets.. Throw your food or newspaper on the floor? Then expect someone to clean it up or end up burning the mountains on a hot day because of littering around… You get what i mean by that. 🙂 I believe it is very important to care for your country and for your own good and for others.. I dont like one that claims to say (i dont care) because it shows that one who does not care to keep the environment clean is a useless person who doesnt even care if something worse happens. One who cares for the environment.. would not end up throwing rubbish on the floor. Its all comes to show some (commonsense) it is after all your country you cant to keep it look good and clean not a country made to look like the world 3rd countries. Just saying. Its important you do the right things and you will do good for the world entirely not only just that but you will feel healthier living as well. So why would you want to liter a place that is not yours.. Its like saying would you care if i can come throw my rubbish bin all over your house ? 🙂 I bet you wouldnt like the idea at all. Well i wonder how busienss would think the very same thing for what your actually doing when you go to a bar in spain… But if people don't care then no one is doing good for this planet of us in which we live in. Try figure that vs a factory fuming bad air above the sky. Well that is the same as that.

  36. I love your videos. This was a great subject to cover. I would love for you to cover how to dress to blend in and not look like a tourist and how to dress for the weather, particularly summer.

  37. Hi I'm Marion Monson and I'm studying culinary arts. Last year, I have graduated with my culinary diploma but I'm currently pursuing my degree as well. I love to find out different culinary cultures hands on because I want more knowledge of culinary cultures and their influences around the world and not just be a common local chef. I also passionate to share and teach people what i know and learned so one day either open a buisness or become an instructor.

  38. James and Yoli, agradezco tanto sus videos, especialmente porque me dieron "permiso" de usar todo lo que aprendi en la escuela del lenguaje espanol
    la gramatica es importante pero valre mucho mas el deseo de comunicarse. Nuestra primera experiencia en Madrid..
    Descuti muy agradabemente unos 30 mimutos con unos senores muy viejos…quiza de 80 anos …sobre la politoca, la comida, la corrida de toros… y en las dos semanas siguientes en Espana no perdi la oportuidad de de hablar , o de demostrar mi interes en la cultura, sea con personas de educacion o con la adolecente muy joven en una demostracion contra la monaquia. Por favor sigan con con sus vdeos y especialmente sigan inspirar s n coraje a las turistas estadounidenses que comuniquen con la gente amable y simpatica de Espana. Primer frase de mi esposo: Dos mas cuando puedas


  39. Terrific vid. Maybe another one about shopping 🛍 since my wife will probably drag me to the Salamanca area 👌

  40. Lo mejor en este video es una mujer "having fun" por detrás de Yolanda. Ella fue fantástica y estuvo muy interesada. Jajajajajajaaja

  41. thanks for the tips! we’re from miami, so we speak spanish, of course. but words like cana and raciones, etc. we don’t use. so, these tips should prove useful for or spanish trip in october.

  42. Os falta una frase imprescindible, la famosa paga tu que se me ha olvidado la cartera o paga tu que solo tengo billetes de 500€

  43. Hi I think you are both fantastic could you do one about driving and asking for directions as I'm coming to Spain in October and need to get to denia many thanks for your time hope to see more on here ☺

  44. Vosotros dos sois alucinantes. La mirada de amor que muestra Yoli por James me calienta el corazón. Además, James, it's hard to believe you're from New Zealand, because your intonations and how you use English sounds VERY American — California to be specific. You guys are the best — keep up the great work!

  45. This was amazing. The accents was prefect. What I would now like is a more complete phrase formation as opposed to a command. Like "May I …." "Where may I …., How may I …?" "Could you please ….direct me to?…. tell me how?…tell me where? Communication skills that can be used in & out of a restaurant. With repetition comes association & familiarity. Gracias!

  46. Love your videos. So energetic, engaging and above all, you convey information in very pleasant manner. Thank you both for your expertise and attention to detail! There's only one tiny suggestion I have to make as classically trained musician. In some of your videos you use three last notes of Habanera which are "coming down" which may suggest the ending instead of the beginning. To keep it "up", as the rest of your video is upbeat all the time, something like the last accords of Escamilio's aria from the same opera or Carmen's Lilas Pastia scene ending would give the intro extra kick. As long as any note in the accord goes up, your listener subconsciously knows the show is about to begin. It may just add some tiny pinch of pepper to your delicious dish.
