I'm Moving to Ecuador & Don't Know Spanish - Do I Need to Hire a Guide or Bilingual?

This is a good question asked by one of our readers about setting up utilities and banking without knowing Spanish. It's always best to know at least basic Spanish before you get here because it will help you to blend in and go local better but it is not necessary as we talk about in this video. We did not know any Spanish when we first got here and we got by just fine...well okay, it was a bit uncomfortable at first. LOL 
If you liked this video here is one about the cost of setting up house such as buying furniture and the cost from budget to high-end. You can spend as much or as little as you want in Cuenca Ecuador.
