Spain - Spanish Language Pronunciation

Jump to last reply

We know some Spanish, both from long ago school as well as living in the Southwest. But we bought a Berlitz language guide for Spanish.

The pronunciation is like a different Spanish. Berlitz does say it is directed at Spain, and we can see that in different areas of Spain they might speak differently, just as between Texas and Louisiana. For example, Centro, is pronounced Thentro as opposed to what we expected to be Sentro. There are major changes to how J, D and Z are pronounced too.

Simple question. How hard will it be to be understood if we use our current Spanish as opposed to relearning, and remembering the difference?
