Hi, unless your leaving the tourist areas, it's not really needed, most of the Goans speak good english.

But if you want to try some phrases, google Konkani language, thats there main language. Theres some sites to help you.

Best words to learn are " how much" " no thank you too expensive"!!!

And most importantly...."yes I've been to Goa many times"
