Hollywood hardman and former Leeds United player Vinnie Jones delivers a performance like never before as he starts his own Spanish lessons aimed at Brits travelling abroad.
The set of online tutorials provides useful phrases and has been launched by mobile network Three to help prepare holidaymakers ahead of their holidays this summer.
The film, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTmlR28lilk, sees Vinnie teach 16 helpful questions and sayings to allow the 13 million Brits who will travel to Spain this summer to get to grips with the basic local dialect.
The Hollywood star shows people how to make it from la playa to el bar, whether you’re flying off to Spain, Mallorca, Tenerife or Ibiza for a getaway.
If you’re looking for the beach, do not fear, Vinnie’s your man, “Cuánto por su mejor hidropedal mi amigo?” And if you’re looking for love, he’s also got it covered, “Podrías darme tu número?”
Vinnie said: “I’ve holidayed in Spain for years and you can’t beat it for sun, sea, sand and a few sangrias. Along the way I’ve managed to pick up a bit of the local lingo so it’s great to be able to share some with my fellow Brits and help them out as they prepare for their holiday. Hopefully with this they’re going to have a blinding trip this year.”
