I need to buy CD as taking an exam in Listening at Intermediate level. Can you anyone advise me?
Sorry I´ve not been in touch recently. I am studying in Spain at the Institute of Languages. I have passed my exams in Reading & Writing & Speaking but I failed miserably on the Listening Test. It is designed with multiple choice sentences and little time is given to read the sentences before each listening activity. I need to practise Listening but with a specific purpose. I have CD s from Sueños and I listen to books but this exam was just to fast for me to comprehend. I really need to pass the exam and have 2 months to practice. Can anyone suggest CD s with listening questions at Intermediate level.
I don't know of any CDs, but I would recommend listening to the podcast of BBC Mundo Radio. You can get it on iTunes or their website, either way for free. It's a fifteen minute podcast with four or five stories on world news, with an emphasis on places where Spanish is spoken. It is a good way to expand your vocabulary and practice listening to real Spanish-speakers, but they speak very clearly and you can always rewind to catch any words you missed.
I loved the Pimsleur tapes. Lessons II and III are intermediate.
I borrowed them from the library and downloaded others from Limewire, so I didn't have to buy them; however, I believe they are available to buy on Amazon.
Also, La Casa Rojas has articles to read that have an audio along with the story. These are intermediate to advanced.
Good luck and let us know how you do.
You have listening activities on this page, the Oficial School of Languages in Madrid.
As you're in Spain spend a lot of time at the market. You can identify the items and try to catch what comments are made. Try recording conversations in bars as well.
Sorry I don't know a CD but some of the Listening sections in Flashcards here might help
