  • Bus- Bus – xe buýt
  • Taxi- taxi – taxi
  • Swimming pool- bể bơi
  • Beach- playa – bãi biển
  • Souvenirs- recuerdos – lưu niệm
  • Tourist- khách du lịch
  • Attractions- atracciones – điểm du lịch

  • How do I get here?- Como llego ahi? – Làm thế nào để tôi đến đó?
  • How much is that? Cuanto esta esto? – Cái đó bao nhiêu tiền?
  • Please- por favor – làm ơn (but we dont really use it)

It is quite interesting how cultures influence the language. This by using phrases that literally translated would mean different things but when are used as modals they totally have sense and express what they are meant to express.
