Miami has its bad and good parts. Places like Saga Bay, Cutler Bay, Coral Gables, The Grove, Brickell, Miami Shores; These are all very safe areas.
Places like Liberty City though; don't ever go there. If you find yourself there, don't stop at red lights. Just keep going, and never get out of the car.
Grand ave (Not the part in the grove, but outside of the Grove) is also pretty bad. It is not safe.
A 2/2 in coral gables costs around $2,000. A 3/5 in Cutler Bay costs around $1,800 (Townhouse). Cutler Bay is just pretty far, but take it from me; it is a gorgeous neighborhood.
You should be able to speak English while here. But clearly, unless you are using a translator, then you are fine.
