With many visitors to Málaga trying to master the language, you will not have a shortage of peers to practice with. The Spanish accent varies throughout the Andalusian part of Spain, with differences in the pronunciation of the letter S and Z, but regardless of these differences, you will still be understood using your Spanish in all Spanish-speaking parts of the world. Andalusia has also experienced a lot of emigration to the Americas, and as such, the Spanish spoken here shares some similarities with Spanish spoken in Latin America.
