as much as possible YES. Because, it tends to give the local the impression that you have already been in their place for many times. And it also serve as a protection against scam of other kinds of tricks they usually play on tourists.
I think it's common courtesy to at least know a few basic phrases like "Hello", Goodbye", and especially "Thank you". When we went to Vienna for our honeymoon, my husband insisted I learn what he considered basic: how to order a piece of chocolate cake in German. To this day, I can still say "Guten Tag! Ein stuck chocoladentorte, bitte!" Also, don't assume other people know your "universal" English. It's much better and way more courteous to be able to say in THEIR language: "Sprechen sie English?"/"Parlez-vous Anglais?"/"Ni wei shou Yingwen ma?" etc.
Yes definitely especially useful and important words like Thanks, Sorry, Hello. And if I am thinking of bargaining, I usually learn the phrase " Any discounts?" Haha....
