4. Learning the Spanish Language

When you are travelling around South America you will encounter a lot of people who don’t speak English, so it is highly recommended that you pick up at least a basic level of Spanish (or Portuguese if you are going to Brazil).

Learning a new language is an adventure and practicing with the locals can be a lot of fun. It’s a skill that will always serve you well and Spanish is a beautiful and romantic language.
