Consejo sobre la palabra hablada

Hola, cada noche y mañana miraba los programas española para aprender español. Escucho porque quisiera entender más fácil la . Entiendo muchas palabras escritas pero cuando son habladas es difícil para entender la oración.

Pienso que lo que me confunde es cómo conectan las palabras porque entonces suenan diferentes.

está aquí
el día hace
palabra hablada

No tengo duda que lo entenderé un día pero, ¿podríais (podrían ustedes) darme algo consejo?

Bob - tengo la misma problema. Entiendo mucho que leo ... puedo escribir un poco ... puedo hablar un poco ... pero no entiendo la mayoría de lo que oigo.

No me canso de repetir....

lean en voz alta (como crean que se pronuncia una palabra de acuerdo a su entendimiento) mientras se graban etc....

otra cosa...

fonética para la gente inglesa:

ah
eh
ee
awe (this is the closest I could come up with)
oo

I've the same problem with the English, sometimes I've tried to understand the movies spoken in English but sometimes they're sometimes hard to understand each word, but I do something each time that I can't understand anything is that I repeat again the part where I didn't understand so, I take more attention to the phrase and so, consecutively I made it each time, I think, you can understand the words if you practice your Spanish with someone while you don't have practice, I see hard that you can understand them, awhile you can try to watch the news, because they're easier to understand them, the nearer that you can get a fast knowledge in Spanish is when you find some person, and you make a little talk with him.

At least it's that I do.

Yo seguiría el consejo de Hernán. Leer en voz alta es muy importante.

You can also try watching/hearing or programs from which you already know the contents so you can start making up meanings and general ideas with new vocabulary.

I prefer speak English with non-English speakers, I understand them much better that if they were English speakers . When I speak English, I understand everything I say

Keep on listening and watching Spanish programs. It's a slow process and takes time but it pays in the long run.
Patience is essential when learning a language.

Yes - I am working on all of these suggestions. I am reading out loud to myself. I am trying to watch my favorite movies with the Spanish voice overs. I am trying to watch Spanish television. I'm using that website that someone posted here a few weeks ago (http://www.laits.utexas.edu/spe/beg01.html). It's still hard. When my Peruvian friend says something to me in Spanish, I NEVER understand her. When I ask her to repeat herself, or to explain to me what she said, I almost always know that I should have understood her ... but didn't really get it. Ugh!!

@Lou Ann: you can ask her to record herself reading the same sentences she's writing to you, so you can get used to her accent.
