wget howto help please

I'm taking a spanish class online and the files are realplayer media. How could I use wget to just grab all *.rm files from /spanish/class01 and /spanish/class02 and so on? just grabbing only the realplayer files from all the directories under the spanish parent directory. reading throught the man page does seem to be specific to this task.

not that i'm lazy, well, i am lazy, but i just want a local copy so that bandwidth is eaten. this way i can do it and go to bed.

maybe a shell script will do this?
