Basque for your trip: Lesson 4 ~ getting help
If you ever decide to take a trip to the Basque country, it would be useful to learn a bit of Basque so you can communicate with the locals, especially in more rural areas. I will teach you some useful phrases so you can get by in Basque. I have made these lessons for English speakers, but there are also Spanish translations as well. I want to focus on vocabulary and phrases since you don't really want to stress about grammar on a trip or holiday, right?

That was a pretty short lesson! I don't have any photos of the Basque country in relation to this, but I'll show you some photos anyway:

This is a photo of San Mamés Stadium, where Athletic Bilbao play:
