A few first words in Spanish

Here we would like to present you with the “first words” in Spanish. Of course listed here are not only Spanish words but also the commonly used official language Catalan (Majorcan). In the schools and town offices here in Majorca one also speaks Majorcan to one another. However, every Majorcan will be delighted if you order your glas of wine in Spanish and not in English. The Majorcans really appreciate every small try in talking Spanish. For this reason, we have created this small list with a few important Spanish words. Have fun when using it.
