With the aim of improving the linguistic skills of the Galician tourism sector, the Galician Tourism Cluster, with funding from the Galician Tourism Agency, has supported the implementation of this programme, which will represent a significant improvement not only in the marketing of the Galician destination, but also in a significant improvement in the attention to foreign tourists in hotels and tourist accommodation, with the aim of advancing the 2020 Strategy for Galician Tourism.

The project also has a website http://galiciafriendly.es/, where not only the participating companies can be consulted, but also a file with basic information on where it is located, how to get there and the latest comments they have received.
