Practice Italian by Listening to the Radio

When I was first learning Italian and listening to someone speak, I could barely figure out where one word ended and the next one began. It sounded like a blur to my ears.

A great way to practice simply listening to the language and parsing out the various sounds, words and sentences, is to listen to the radio in the background. Maybe you'll want to leave it on while you are cooking dinner or working on the computer. 

Wikipedia has a great list of Italian radio stations. Start there and see where it leads you.

I hope you'll share what you find below in the Comments section.
