Conversation with foreign speaker

I have a general question: let's say I say a sentence with a first tone word, a fourth tone word, a fifth tone word, and a third tone word. If I don't get the exact pitch of the high and low tones, will a native still understand me?

For learning: Chinese (Cantonese)
Base language: English

    If they understand most part of your expression, they still can understand what you are talking about.
