Nowadays, and unlike in the past, you can easily find an English speaker in Granada. There is always going to be somebody who will try to help you out if they see that you do not speak Spanish and maybe they know some English. They will try to teach and practice speaking some Spanish words with you.
People in Granada are usually kind and are always willing to give you a hand. You will not have any problem. Even though we are not as fluent English speakers like Costa Ricans and all those other English speaking countries, we try to help expats and tourist. However, you also have to be cautious when you meet somebody who is very nice, kind, and charming and is readily there to give you a hand. Do not be fooled. If somebody gives you a hand, just be nice but do not be too open and give things right away.
