Learning occurs 24/7 while listening to podcasts ; authentic language & choice in content Possibility for social and intercultural exchanges Creation of podcasts supports skills development (research, writing, speaking, etc.)

5 Try… Listening to vocabulary and grammar lessons, but also music, radio and other audio for native speakers (whole class or individual activities) Recording songs, choral readings, poetry, dialogues, audio greetings, newscasts and other “radio programs” Playing games with recordings(“Guess who said”) Exchanging audio topics with another class
