I've started out learning this awesome language but invariably find most opportunities to practice quite limited atm , any fellow Esperanto beginners wanna message/ chat/skype. Also can anyone recommend any other learning resources?
They produce readings of short (8-10 minutes long) news clips with transcripts so you can listen to get familiar with the sounds and feel of Esperanto while reading along. At first, you won't be able to pick out many words, but it will gradually get better.
Plus, it's not a single newsreader, so you'll be exposed to both female and male voices.
