Understanding dialogues

I have a really hard time understanding dialogues in French, do anyone have any tips or pointers as to what i should be looking for when listening to the dialogues, or perhaps recommend some extra listening exercises?

http://www.learnfrenchbypodcast.com/ has many podcasts with french dialogs from beginner to advanced level that help with listening comprehension. MP3s seem to be free and you pay for the guide books.

I'm in french classes, my teacher is a native speaker (he's haitian), so he recommended listen to "Radio France Internationale" (search it on the internet) and trust me, my vocabulary and understanding have increased a lot. Sorry for my bad english, I'm a spanish speaker [:

@Dain Cool link!

@Mush12345 If you can, try slowing the dialogue down. And if it's a video, see if you can enable subtitles in French (either for learners or for the hearing-impaired, like we have in English). If you don't have either of those options, just try to get what you can out of it, try to puzzle the rest out from context, and then listen to it again to see if you're right. But listening to native speakers talking normally in a foreign language is one of the hardest things about learning one, so don't stress yourself out about it too much--you'll get it eventually. :)
