Would a person in Spain understand my broken Latin American Spanish?

I am traveling to the Andalucia region of Spain this summer. I speak a decent amount of Latin American Spanish but I was wondering how many people in that region would actually understand it.

  1. Hi! I am writting you from Madrid.(Alcal√° de Henares)

    Everyone are going to understand you without a problem even with an strong Latin American accent or words but probably it will be a little bit complicated to understand the Andaluzian accent for you. Have a nice trip.

    Here you will find the best way to practice your Spanish or simply to visit Spain.

  2. It is like an American going to Australia, or England. It will sound a little different to them, and they will know you are a foreigner, but they will still understand you.

  3. Formal Latin American and European Spanish are identical, as far as I know, and conversational Spanish is VERY close. People would notice that you have an accent and possible use different terms for a couple of words, but other than that I think you’re fine.

  4. Definately everyone will understand you. For you it may be a little harder to understand them at first, but it’s the same for latinamericans in some parts of Spain anyways.
