Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Affleck, UK Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg: these are just some of the native English speakers who can speak more than passable Spanish.
But at the other end of the scale, there are plenty of bad examples you could follow.
Whether it's the character of Basil Fawlty in the classic British Sitcom Fawlty Towers, or the singer Stevie Wonder doing an advertisement for Spain's traffic authorities, there are millions of ways you can go wrong.
Others in this list will surprise you with their skills, or feigned skills, but the results are always hilarious.
Oh, and hasta la vista, baby!
