Intentas de mirar las noticias (not a las noticias) - porque ya vas a saber el sujeto de que hablan - (conocer is more widely used to indicate personal acquaintance).

Espero que te ayude mucho porque sé que es tan difícil para nosotros.

Deseo ayudarte porque sé lo difícil que es para nosotros.

Nowadays, you can have a "cuasi" total immersion thanks to the internet.

"La palabra hablada" it is used exactly the same as in English. (different pronunciation, though)

Not according to mi señora, she's never heard of it. She was born in Ciudad Real, lived a few years in Badajoz then many years in Barcelona.

I was born in Santiago, Chile, lived there for 25 years and then I came to the USA.

I have heard that phrase there and here, as a matter of fact I have also read it.

Sometimes the spoken word differs from the written word. This causes confusion.

Les recomiendo: http://www.juliocortazar.com.ar/suvoz.htm
Allí encontraran a Cortázar (por si no lo conocen, gran escritor argentino) leyendo algunos de sus cuentos y otra miscelánea. Me parece útil porque: 1) por supuesto que usa un excelente español ; 2) relata bien, aunque los audios son viejos y hay algo de descarga en algunos ; 3) son hermosos los cuentos.

Tener la precaución de, las primeras veces que se escuche alguno, hacerlo con el escrito a mano hasta que el oido se acostumbre. No vendría mal un diccionario y google tampoco.

Recomiendo: "Casa Tomada", "Continuidad de los Parques", "Más sobre escaleras"
Importante: NO es una lectura para principiantes, aunque sí sirve para entrenar el oído tratando de escribir lo que se escucha.

(con un reproductor como VLC, pueden abrir todos los archivos)

-------------------

De Borges hay muchisimos audios de sus poemas y entrevistas, recitados excelentemente por su propia voz. Si alguien quiere le paso algunos enlaces por pm, pero vale aclarar que es una lectura muy dificil. Más que nada para practicar audición amenos que sean avanzados. (pero con paciencia y dedicandole suficiente tiempo a cada una se puede)

-------------------

En fin, es lo que yo creo da un mejor resultado. Pasar un buen momento leyendo algo que te agrada mientras lo escuchas y lo repetis a la par o con retraso del audio.
Yo utilizo para practicar mi ingles: http://librivox.org
Escuchando e imitando la pronunciación de, por ejemplo, poemas de: Robert Frost, Stevenson, etc; cuentos de: Poe, Lovecraft, etc.

Saludos.
PD: if you don't understand something ask me, i'm quite in a hurry so i wrote it in spanish. Sorry.

Muchísimas gracias a todos, y hoy siento que he entendido mucho porque escuché dos personas hablan en español a la tienda y entendí casi toda de la conversación. Bob es un evesdropper

Estaba en san diego y muchas de las personas allí hablan español, por eso estaba practicando mi español. Aquí donde vivo nadie habla español me parece. Pero como dijiste hay muchas películas en español
