We took a trip to Barcelona with Babbel, the language learning app, to find out just how much English speakers miss out on abroad by not speaking the local language.

In the experiment, British tourists were offered some of the best holiday experiences imaginable, all for free. A yacht, a helicopter, a personal butler, €5,000 spending money, you name it. All they had to do was say “si”. Watch below to see how they fared.

The spot, directed by Tom Gorst and produced by Full Fat Films, was created as part of Babbel’s Be A Better Brit Abroad campaign and will broadcast across social platforms.
