Reminds me of vacation wife and I took to Cozumel a few years ago. I would never claim to speak Spanish (even after years of it in high school) but it took a few days to feel comfortable just saying things everyone knows like "gracias" and "buenos dias". What a stupid American tourist I was. Even just a few words in Spanish was appreciated by the locals but it obviously wasn't a requirement at a vacation resort.
