If all the Spanish you know are a few nouns and you’ll be landing soon in Latin America or Spain, these are the very first 9 verbs you should learn, if you don’t want to be reduced to sign language when asking for something. These all mean (and are written) almost the same in English, so you are already familiar with them.
You can easily construct many useful sentences for the airport with them if you start with ‘Me puede”, as in: ‘¿Me puede transportar a Teotihuacán?’ [Can you transport me to Teotihuacan?]. This ‘me puede’ is very convenient because the following verb never changes. The result is not perfect Spanish -or English- but locals will understand you (you would still need to know some nouns to end these requests)
¿Me puede auxiliar a recibir mi equipaje?
Can you help (serving as an auxiliary) me receiving my luggage?
