      Gibralter info

      hello Anyone !!
      how are you all?
      Would anyone know if i am right in believing, that there is a Morrisons supermarket in Gibralter?
      If so, would or do the staff speak English, and doess this apply to other shops aswell, as i am considering a transfer to this Gibralter store, after a holiday i am planning, so i can get a feel for the place.
      If anone is living there or spent time there and went to the Morrisons store, do they speak English or mainly Spanish.
      many thanks..

      Hi Jenni,

      The official language of Gibraltar is English, but the nationals usually are bi - lingual i.e. English / Spanish. Because Gibraltar is multi - cultural other languages are also spoken , Portugese, Arabic , Italian and others.
      So I don't imagine there would be a language problem, if you just speak English. I have no idea whether there is a Morrisons store there.
