Using I-pods to learn English


On October 23rd 2001 the first i-pod was revealed. It later went on sale on November 10th, 2001. The I-pod was introduced to the public and has forever changed the way we listen to music on the go. Do you own an i-pod or an mp3 player? Have you thought about how these devices can help you learn English?

Before the apps and internet connections of the smartphone, i-pods were trusted friends holding all of our music library.

It is great to fill your music library with recordings specifically for English Langauge learners, but don’t be afraid to venture out. There are podcasts available on a wide variety of topics. Think about topics that interest you: sports, news, politics, food, entertainment, etc and download podcasts in that genre.

Listening is a skill that many English learners have trouble with, so dust off your I-pod and play English on repeat.
