Travelling somewhere where they speak Spanish? Learn at least a few words.
It's true that not many non-English speakers try to navigate around without ANY English language capability.
Maybe some elderly people (which is understandable) might try, but will normally have younger family members or friends to assist.
However it is very common to find English speakers - be they British, North Americans, Australians or others, loudly shouting and gesticulating in foreign climes.
Do not be that guy.
Not only is it rude to expect someone else to understand you, but you also put yourself at a disadvantage - more likely to be ripped-off, ignored, or otherwise abused.
The converse is so positive too! If you take the trouble to learn just a few words, you know you will bring huge smiles to people that you encounters faces, enjoy your day more, and maybe get something more - like some advice or treat.
