To listen effectively, you have to recognize at least 75% of the vocabulary. For this, I recommend movies and TV series with subtitles. Songs' lyrics are also good.


Radio and podcasts are great for immersion and getting familiar with the language, but they don't do much in preparing you for conversations or learning new vocabulary.


To start talking, you'll need someone to listen to you and correct you. I understand this is not always easy, so I suggest you should start talking to yourself. Think of a topic, then say something about it, aloud.
