One thing that I have found with Spanish that helps me is reading books in Spanish that I enjoy in English. I've read them enough in English that I understand the story and such so when I'm reading in Spanish it is easier to pick up some words that I don't know by just looking at the context and knowing where in the story I am. For me it really helps with understanding things. (Also, reading out loud to yourself can help with pronunciation.)

I practice my Spanish pronunciation by writing journal entries to myself and then practicing them out loud.

Interestingly enough, the Spanish form of vosotros (you all) is only used in Spain. I can't help but find that interesting.
