Thumbs up Place to listen & read - native spanish speakers

I just found this site today when searching for help to understand spoken Spanish better.

http://www.laits.utexas.edu/spe/beg01.html

It gives examples of native speakers from different countries, covering topics

for BEGINNERS - 'identifying basic objects', 'basic colors', 'introducing yourself to others', & more;

for INTERMEDIATE - 'Telling time' 'favorite movies actors singers', & more;

for ADVANCED - 'your most recent job', 'your experience in an accident' & more;

and for SUPERIOR - 'Living in another time period' 'role play: phone appt. with doctor' & more

And it allows you to follow along with text while you listen to the native speaker (which helps me ALOT, the visual learner that I am). I think it will help me get a natural feel of how sentences flow in simple topics. And it could quickly become a favorite for me! So glad I found it, and I hope it can help someone else out there too!

Sorry, CrOtaLiTo, but I think that site is just for people who want help learning Spanish. I did a quick search and here are a few sites I found for you (and any others that would like help with English). I hope they help. If not, you can go to Google and search "ESL Listening Exercises" or "ESL Diaolgue Practice" or something similar and you should get numerous results.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! THIS IS WONDERFUL!!!!!!

Listening/understanding spoken Spanish has been my BIGGEST problem. When I was in Uruguay & Peru last month, it drove me CRAZY because people would say things to me and wait for me to respond, and they KNEW I SHOULD understand, but I didn't ... because I didn't understand what they were saying. But when they slowed down and explained each word to me, I realized that I SHOULD have known what they were saying. THIS IS GOING TO BE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO helpful.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
