Extr@ -- Easy to understand language learning show!
I recently just discovered Extr@, a tv show designed for learning languages. They speak pretty slowly and avoid using very complicated speech. I watched episode one of the Spanish one, and I can say that I basically understood everything they said. They made episodes in English, (30) French, Spanish, and German (13). If you're wondering, it started in 2002 and ended in 2004. They're actually not bad. They're pretty funny and very helpful. Give it a try! You can find them on youtube easily.
It's is very cheesy, but a very good way to introduce your ear to listen to another language. I've watched all the French ones I could find on YouTube... but I certainly couldn't find 30 of them. I think maybe only 6. If anyone finds a channel/playlist with all the episodes, share it around!
I have noticed that their appears to be 4 versions for different languages: Spanish, French, Germam and English with some of the same actors. Thanks for the information that when I reach Level 13 I should basicallly understand everything they say. Gives me another reason to be pushing forward.
