Learning a second language is not an easy task, but there are some things you can do at home to help your change the subtitles to be read in your target language so you can read as well as listen to the words in the film that are spoken at a fast pace. The World Cup is on TV right now and you can set your TV to Spanish language and subtitles as well to really get a great listening and reading exercise. There is French Tv as well, called TV 5 that yo can get through your cable company or directly through TV5.
I love foreign films and I encourage students to try and watch a foreign film to help their listening skills. They don't talk to fast, you listen too slowly… its a skill one has to practice and learn.
