Best parts of a language to learn when using it for travel?

I think it depends to the place where you are going, in spanish speaking places at least very few people speak english in daily life, unlike the airports where everything it's translated to english, so it may be helpful to learn specific sentences to use in different situations, for example to get directions, to buy things to eat (specially food vocabulary might be helpful to know what you're buying) and vocabulary to describe things in case you need to. Oh! and basics to survive, like use the bathroom and transportation. If you need to learn spanish I can help you with that, it could be useful specially with sentences in context, and how to use them.
I hope this helps you

Going into grammar for travel purposes doesn't make much sense, but there are a couple of points I think it's important to at least have a grasp of: Present tense regular formation, one past tense, basic sentence structure (SVO? OSV?) and how to ask questions. After that, vocabulary specific to certain situations like:

- Taking a flight.

- Ordering in a restaurant.

- Asking for directions.

- Checking in at a hotel or AirBnB.

- Any vocabulary specific to activities you're planning to do (hiking, museums, monuments...).

Hope it helps.
