Improve your listening skills on Youtube

Guys, do you use Youtube channels to learn a new language, or to practice your listening skills in another language? I've come up with this list (http://www.beyondthelanguagebarrier.com/37-awesome-youtube-channels-for-learning-languages/) of 37 youtube channels targeting 12 different languages but I'm curious to find other high quality Youtube channels. I'm particularly interested in French, Spanish and Italian but I would also check channels in other languages as long as they are fun and easy to understand for beginners.

Thanks a lot! Lili

For Italian I recommend hands down One World Italiano:

Ignore at your peril.

If anyone can find a course of equivalent caliber in French, Spanish, or Mandarin I would like to know. Though, they could be hiding on that list, I'll have to look it over. "Français Authentique" looks like it might be good.

Sgrammaticando (on your list) is also quite good for the finer points of Italian grammar and common errors (especially among natives).

For German, I'd also recommend "Jojo sucht das Glück" and "Easy German". Jojo is a fairly easy telenovela story of a woman arriving in Germany from Brazil. Fun, fairly understandable for beginner/intermediate learner. With (german) subtitles.

Easy German is kind of a man-in-the-street quick interview program ("what are you shopping for today", "what do you think of Trump", that kind of thing). Helps train your ear since they don't have people slow down for the viewer! There is also a series of Super Easy German in which they do talk slowly. Both have German and English subtitles.
