Welcome to Real Man Travel Guides!

This site is for guys looking to hook up with the girls in other countries. In each city I've been to I rate your chance of hooking up along with what to do during the day, where to sleep, and what spots to hit at night. In each country's overview page I also give a description on the girls. For advice on how to pick girls up, take a look at my game tips newsletter, which complements my book Bang.

How To Speak To Girls In Basic Spanish

When you’re in another country it’s best to approach the girl English to immediately broadcast your gringo status. Another benefit of using English is that since it’s your native language you will hesitate less than if you had to approach in a new language you are unfamiliar with. Opening is half the battle so it’s important to make the first contact even if she doesn’t completely understand you.

If the girl doesn’t speak any English and you are not in a club then you will be in trouble, but otherwise you only need to add a few phrases to your dancing to take things to the next level. Remember that words, while helpful, are not necessary to hook up with a foreign chick who likes you for whatever reason. A little bit of alcohol won’t hurt.

I give the Spanish wording followed by an English equivalent.

1. Hi, how are you?
→ Hola, cómo estás ? (oh-la, co-mo es-tas)
OR
→ Hola, que tal? (oh-la, kay tal)

2. Are you from here?
→ ¿Eres de aquí? (eh-res day ah-key)

3. I’m from the United States
→ Soy de los Estados Unidos  (soy day los eh-sta-dos ooh-nee-dos)

4. You like gringos, yes?
→ ¿Te gusta gringos, sí? (tay goo-sta grin-gos, see)

5. Where can I find…
→ ¿Dónde puedo encontrar… ? (don-day pweh-doh)

6. I’m here on vacation
→ Estoy aquí de vacaciones (es-toy ah-key day ba-ca-sion-ayes)

7. You are nice
→ Tu estás simpatica (two es-tas sim-pot-uh-ka)

8. Do you want to have a drink with me some day?
→ ¿Quieres tomar algo conmigo un dia? (key-eh-res toe-mar al-go con-me-go oon dee-ah)

9. I want to see you again
→ Quiero verlo otra ves (key-eh-row bear-lo oh-tra base)

10. Where is the whore house?
→ ¿Dónde está la casa de puta? (don-day es-ta la ka-sa day poo-ta)

I didn’t put “What is your name?” in the list because it’s best to let the girl ask first as a way to gauge her interest.

For study I recommend you grab ten notecards and put English on one side with the other language on the other. Look at the English side first and see if you can say the Spanish translation with no mistakes. After one or two hours you should be ready.

If you want to take your Spanish to the next level, I recommend taking a look at a guide I wrote a while ago called Teach Yourself Spanish. If you find yourself in Brazil, rest assured that your crappy Spanish will easily be understood by the Brazilians, whose Portuguese is similar to Spanish.
