Bale’s Spanish lesson with his teammates: “I don’t have a clue what you’ve just said”

22 Mar 2019

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has been in Spain for approaching six years, yet his remarkably low level of Spanish has caused much debate, both in Spain and back in the United Kingdom.

Nevertheless, the Welshman took part in a humorous video alongside teammates Luka ModricSergio Ramos, Varane, Marcelo and Casemiro as they asked a series of questions in both Spanish and English.

“What are the three things you carry in your luggage,” Modric asked in Spanish.

“I don’t have a clue what you’ve just said,” Bale replied in English.

“Gaz, how do you celebrate Christmas?” Ramos enquired in Spanish.

“With my family,” Bale answered in Spanish.

It was then the turn of the 29-year-old to ask some questions in English.

“Cartoons or documentaries?” Bale asked Marcelo.

“Cartoons, of course,” stated Marcelo.

“You understand – cartoons?” Marcelo jokingly quizzed Casemiro.

“Gareth, let me explain something here,” Marcelo said to Bale in English.

“What is your favourite beach destination?” the Brazilian asked in Spanish.

“It would probably be Los Angeles,” Bale responded in English.
