Guanajuato, Mexico - Spanish Ears

I have talked with many would be Spanish learning students who complain that though they've taken years of Spanish classes, they cannot understand a word of Spanish when it is spoken to them. Listening to Spanish, comprehensible Spanish input, you can do this with podcasts.

The Importance of Spanish Podcasts: One of the most frustrating things about trying to develop the highest possible proficiency in a second language is that the native speakers sound like they are speaking at Warp Speed!

I am just now emerging from that linguistic pit in understanding the rapid-fire native speakers and I want to share with you how I am doing it using the online FREE and PAID media tools.

I suggest two things. First of all try to buy this product:

Immersion Plus Spanish – One of the most misunderstood parts of becoming fluent in any language is the need of training your ear in the target language. What I mean is, if you cannot hear the euphony or music of the language, you will rarely, if ever, be able to understand what someone is saying to you in the target language. I live in Mexico. I can tell you though I went through massive preparation before coming to Mexico, I did not count on the speed at which the locals speak. It is remarkably fast! This course, by design, will help you with this problem. It addresses this common issue.

The second most important thing to do is to listen to Spanish Podcasts. The list I am including will help you if you listen to them in the order I which I've numbered them. When you get through the list, start over and re-listen until you can actually anticipate what the speakers on the podcasts are going to say.

1) NOTES IN SPANISH - This is a beginner through advanced podcast and is one of the few FREE Spanish Podcasts.

2) Rojas Spanish Language - Both FREE and some PAID services.

3) Audiria is a new online tool which freely supports your learning of spanish, offering multimedia audiofiles to increase your knowledge of the language.

4) Learn Spanish on Your Terms - Both FREE and some PAID services.

5) Lo Mas TV - LoMásTv is an online Spanish video magazine for people who wish to improve their Spanish skills. Authentic Spanish videos include television programs, music videos, interviews, documentaries, and travel. Only LoMásTv offers Spanish and English captions, pitch-correct slow play, integrated dictionaries and listening exercises.

[The Lo Mas TV is a paid service with some free demos. The cost is cheap, in my view, for what you get and I highly recommend this service as worth the price and what you learn!]
