News in Slow Spanish
I listened to this on iTunes this morning after receiving this suggestion. While even this is difficult it is a great way for me to approach the comprehension of spoken language. You can listen to news from a few days ago, which you might already know, so you have a better chance of following along.
I just LOVE News in Slow Spanish. And they have lots of helpful quizzes, grammar notes, special phrases, podcasts, vocabulary, etc.
They are excellent speakers, funny, dramatic etc. although I got pretty exhausted trying to follow it. Maybe a little each day.
