Do telenovelas help?
I notice I remember some phrases and words from back when I watched a TV channel that showed telenovelas with subtitles. Which ones would you suggest? Maybe start with ones I've seen dubbed (Lalola (Argentina), Betty La Fea (original), Culpable de este amor, Aurora, La tempestad) and then go for new ones?
My favorites are Lalola, Betty, Culpable de este amor, Aurora, La tempestad, Muñeca de trapo, and many others I saw on Zone Romantica (thankfully in my country it was with subtitles).
Try Colombian telenovelas from 1990's: Yo soy Betty la Fea, Café con aroma de mujer, La viuda de Blanco, La Potra Zaina, Pedro El Escamoso or El Oasis. They have good scripts and good performers.
If you are learning Spanish maybe you can watch some traditional Spanish programs, In Mexico and Colombia have too many good options to see. From Mexico search: "Cuna de lobos" "Marimar" "Mirada de Mujer"
From Colombia search: "Cafe con Aroma de Mujer" "Pasion de Gavilanes" "La hija del Mariachi"
And one extra from Argentina "Amor en custodia"
I hope this information serves you. Maybe if you like I can recommend very good latin series. Greetings.
Anna y los siete (Spain) aka Mi corazon es tuyo (Mexico) https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ana_y_los_7 Television series. It is a mixture of Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music.

Telenovelas bore me.
I find folklorio very interesting.
Parades and fiestas fun
It's ooh aah or ugh.
I admit Turkish soaps are often better acted. Still, I love Latin cultire more than Turkish.
