I once made a discussion where I put together all the grammar tips and tips in general that I knew for helping with Spanish. If you are interested, it is here.

Hey do you go to Solon cause I do I am in 8th grade. Here is a tip everyday when you are free go on your phone or computer or whatever then just study for at least 1/2 an hour and that will increase the speed of you talking and increase your Spanish word skill.

I do not have any links to provide, but talk to yourself in Spanish as much as possible, and search for the words suitable for every situation or event happening around. It'll help pave your way to real-life conversations and make you more confident. Best of luck, and have a safe trip! :)

Study Spanish more. Use Duolingo TinyCards, Busuu, the Internet Polygot, Duolingo Stories, Memrise, and maybe even WeSpeke to study. Just crack down on it. If you don't become very fluent & if you have a phone, there's a cool thing called Google Translate that can even understand people's voices incredibly well. I'll give a Lingot to wish you good luck.

Thanks so much I will try that google translate on my phone. But where are the duolingo tiny cards

Just google Tiny Cards. It's made by Duolingo but is also for studying in general so they separate it. Then you can search the language you're learning and it'll show something like "Duolingo Spanish Course".

If you are fluent in English then you could try Language Transfer: Complete Spanish. Instead of memorisation, this course focuses on using the English you already know to speak Spanish. By applying certain rules, you can gain a vocabulary in the thousands, just by thinking.

Other tools to consolidate this include binging on Duolingo, Memrise and Busuu. If you are willing to pay then textbooks, other apps and live teaching through iTalki are good options. Speaking with natives and using the language as much as possible in your normal life will be most valuable!

Good luck!
