Wordlist - Lang1234.com

What can be learned in a foreign language purely by sound, over the radio or on MP3, from native speakers?
The goal is for beginners to understand and repeat 300-400 words as native speakers say them, slowly and clearly.
With this solid pronunciation, beginners can advance to other classes, listen to radio and movies (with subtitles), and talk with other learners or native speakers.
