Interesting documentary (in Spanish) about Guiris in Murcia. On this section, a Brit's featured who's lived there for 5 years but hasn't learnt Spanish. He's handy with the conjuring skills though...

I understood most of it! Probably cos they were extrajeneros speaking Spanish but still well pleased.

The language thing does bug me though - I see so many British people here in the UK complaining about immigrants who don't speak English, and asking for how much Councils/government have spent on translating documents is always a favourite freedom of information request - and yet some of us do the same when we move abroad.

Yes, my Spanish may sound a bit odd - (I can't roll my rs for one) - but I keep trying.

I also found that when speaking my Spanish that it is better understood in 'English' resorts, for example Lloret de Mar, where they must be used to Spanish being spoken by Pam Ayres!

Happy Christmas everyone. x

5 years that´s a bloody disgrace.
Why don´t they just learn a bit, it would make their lives so much easier.
