    Good site for listening

    If you're learning Russian and looking for a good way to improve your listening skills look no further. News readings slow and clear, plus you can read the transcripts if you don't understand something.

    Если ты изучаешь русский язык, вот хороший сайт для улучшения устного понимания. Дикторы медленно и ясно читают новости, к тому же можно читать тексты в таком случае, если не понимаешь что-нибудь.

    At this pace I can even translate it on the fly. You know, like they do at the UN and stuff.

    No harm taken.

    I actually though of using "reference" first but it didn't flow very well.

    Yeah, well, you weren't really that far off base -- I used to use связь (it's a pretty versatile word, nevertheless -- 7 different defs in lingvo) too, but then I found ссылка and I could never forget it again. Come to think of it, that should be posted as one of the weird Russian words to my ear "SSSSylka!" It makes me feel like a snake saying it...

    Exactly! "Spaseba Sylka" just sounded funny to me.

    Let's brush up on your R a tiny bit.

    устного понимания -> Понимания на слух. Устной может быть речь. Устный происходит от уста, archaic for mouth. So unless you hear things with your mouth, use на слух. It's an easy mistake to make though.

    в таком случае -> в том случае

    В таком случае means in that case:
    -Я сегодня занят, пиво отменяется.
    -В таком случае я пойду в кино.
    I've got a TV, and I'm not afraid to use it
