Podcasts and ELT

Podcasts   offer great opportunities  for  listening in English .Teachers and learners can benefit from  working online  and listening to them. In some cases learners can also  download them  and listen to them  many times so that they can  work on the language and  on summarizing the content.

Good leaners  need to work on their  listening skills and today we can really  improve our level of English. Teachers can rely on  them for learning more about  the topics they are interested in and these podcasts can provide really interesting documents which are worth  listening to. 

This interesting  webinar with  Pete Sharma  explains why we should  use  them and suggest listening to them :  I cannot but  agree with him.  The Language exposure can develop our students' listening skills and  podcasts can provide good quality language input.
