If your like me and you love gadgets and all things new and innovative, then you will most probably have an iPod or some sort of mp3 player – but have you thought about using it to learn English??
Podcasts are becoming more and more popular as a free way to distribute news, views and opinions online. I am sure many of you are thinking “What is a podcast?” and the simple answer is a podcast is a short audio show that is distributed (usually for free) online. If you have an iPod you will know about iTunes and their podcasting directory.
So how can a podcast help you learn English? Well the guys a ESL Pod now publish a regular ESL podcast to help students with their english. A truly fantastic idea and I am sure a lot of fun!
This has also got me thinking, are their other language Podcasts available? I have been searching and not found any like this yet – post a comment if you run one or know of one!
