The most practice I got when I started to read Argentinian newspapers in the web.
Additional to that I try to follow the minute-by-minute reports of matches in the Spanish football league (at least of some teams, not of all), but that helps a lot for the passive knowledge (which is the specific term for being able to read in a language, but not speaking it.)
