When learning, say, French, it is important to listen to French speakers and repeat what they say as closely as you can.

I don't think that doing that will help much with Sanskrit, however. Instead, we have to start by doing tons of listening first, just to get used to the rythm of short vowels and long vowels.

Some of the followings videos might help. They are prayers, in verse, chanted.

This is a very popular stotra. If it's too fast for you, there is a "gear" icon at the bottom of every youtube video that allows you to set the playing speed to 75 percent normal. That gadget helps a lot.
