Is the phrase ‘¿Cómo de importante es...? considered gramatically correct in Spain?
By which I mean 'How important is...?' I've seen the phrase written but wondered if it was a more Latin American phrase and if there was a more accurate of phrasing it.
Thanks in advance for any help!

"¿Cómo de importante es...?" is correct in Spain. "¿Cuán importante...?" would also be correct in Spain.
But, "¿Qué tan importante es ...?" is NOT used in Spain, it sounds incorrect.
So, depending on which type of Spanish you want to use you might want to use one or the other.Source(s): Spaniard.

No, that is grammatically incorrect both in Spain and Latin America. You could say
¿Qué tan importante es ...?
¿Cuán importante es ...?

¿Cuán importante es...?
Any educated Spanish speaking person from any ethnicity will use the proper terminology.
