Typing in a foreign language is a pretty difficult thing to do with programs and devices that were designed for the English language. There are usually options that make it possible to add language-specific characters while you are typing, but they are often cumbersome or inconvenient. But if you find that you need to type a lot in a language other than English, such as Spanish, you can add a Spanish keyboard to the iPhone 5, which you can then access from any screen where a keyboard is available.
