Mum saying her one word of Spanish to every shopkeeper and waiter


A mum is insisting on saying the one word of Spanish that she knows at every opportunity on holiday.

Mum Murial Hislop is ending, and starting almost every conversation with a Spanish local with the word…Gracias.

Hislop has confounded every local with 10 minutes of broken English before throwing in the word ‘Gracias’ as she leaves.

‘I like to do my bit. They like it when you speak their language,’ said Hislop.

‘I don’t want them to think we’re stupid in England,’ added Hislop.
