Spanish Speaking videos...
I love this! I believe I got it from someone on here... Or a link on something that led me to something else which led me to this... But, anyways, please excuse my rambling, this is a great site for learning pronunciation and new words in Spanish! They have videos for beginners and people who are more familiar with the language! I have learned a couple new words already from it! Plus, you can slow down the audio as well!
I hope this helps some of you guys <3 ! You all have helped me a lot so I hope this helps return the favor :P
Yes! I love Yabla too! It appears that there are only a handful you can do for free, as they want you to subscribe for $9.95 a month. I am doing the free ones over and over. After a few tries I am able to understand by watching and listening, without reading the Spanish or the English subtitles. Yabla is great for hearing native speakers speak naturally. You can also sign up to receive their weekly emails which teach certain points and clear up common confusions.
As long as we are sharing ideas, here is another one that has really helped me - Instead of watching regular Spanish language tv, which I cannot understand well yet, I am watching shows that were originally in English or another language, but with dubbed in Spanish voices (no subtitles). It is sooo much easier to understand because instead of being "true Spanish," it is more like "translated Spanish," and the voiceover actors seem to ennunciate better. With only basic cable, I can get a channel called "V Me," which has a lot of these shows. My favorite one right now is "Africa mi Corazon," which I think was originally called "Wild at Heart," about the adventures of a veterinarian in Africa. Shows with a lot of action are easier to follow than shows where people just stand around and talk. Another good one is a German cop show about a police dog. It is called, "Comisario Rex." A great moment for me with that show (which was evidentally originally in German) was when the bad guy's dad texted him saying "Sie kommen" (they are coming), and with my VERY basic Duolingo German I could understand it! A proud moment indeed, lol!
