A good resource to improve your pronunciation (and listening ability)

Choose a word, write it in the search box, and you will be linked to a video in which your chosen word is pronounced: there are subtitles running under the video screen on your page: a fantastic source, I wish I could have had something like that!! 

The good thing about this free source is that you not only listen to the single word, but you can hear it in a context, in the rhythm of a sentence, and that will help you the next time you will hear it again.

Listening is very important to keep you language updated, and why not, it can be interesting!
Try the following links:
the first one is updated with the latest news,
while the second is older, but offers a glossary that can help before listening.
