A great and pleasant way of improving your listening skills in a foreign language is watching TV. So if you´re studying Spanish and have access to Telemundo or Univision, you´re in for great learning! Besides providing you with real, unedited listening practice, watching these channels will take you on a magic and wonderful journey of Latin culture. Soaps, news, game shows and gossip shows are only some of the programs.
If you don’t have access to either of these channels, don’t despair! You can go to YouTube or other online video resources and find videos by searching for words in Spanish. Here’s an example!
Nowadays there´s a wide array of resources for improving your listening skills and another one of them is radio. There are thousands of Spanish-speaking radios online and a famous Latin bombshell has a program of her own: Thalía (www.thaliaradio.com). Her shows are full of energy, fun and her Spanish is really easy for not very experienced ears. In addition to bringing music news, Conexión Thalía also brings support for the Latin community in the States in topics like law, immigration, finances, personal problems and they even have joke and karaoke competitions.
