i can't talk about other languages' native speakers, but we Spanish people usually get the idea, even if you're saying it wrong. We're quite flexible with pronunciation. So loosen up and express yourself the best you can, and others will understand you :)

Yeah, you don´t have to worry at all, people from Spain are really extrovert and nice and will do their best to make you feel comfortable and to understand you... so don´t be afraid of making mistakes and talk as much as you like! :)
