Does Netflix have any subtitled Russian movies available? I've found that watching watching subtitled Japanese material helps train my ears to hear the shapes of spoken words. I've also found that anime voice actors tend to enunciate more clearly than actors in live action films (or maybe it's just that the sound is mixed differently) but that may not be helpful for Russian. -- Elyse Grasso    Computers and Technology   Divination and Science Fiction WebLog
