Also, download pardth and listen to it alot. Even though I don't understand it, I', slowly learning to distinguish between the different sounds. I listen to pardth on my ipod every night when I fall asleep.

Finally, there are tv shows/movies/music.

This website has some punjabi movies you can watch,

Amer Ji,
Where in Canada are you? There are multiple projects run around the country by Sikh youth groups. If you get involved with them it will help you feel connected as you'll have chances to practice and learn as well as make friends! If you are in the greater Toronto area, feel free to PM me and I'll get you the details of the new soup kitchen that has started up there. Jasleen Kaur.

If you want to chat on skype it may help? Just pm me. I've ordered a headset and waiting for it to arrive.

This goes to anyone else too, it would be cool practice punjabi this way, as there is less embarrasment in making mistakes.
