The Best Podcasts to Boost English Language Learning
As an English teacher, I have noticed that it is essential for English learners to increase their exposure to the English language outside the classroom in order to make the most progress. As I am a huge lover and consumer of podcasts, I can only highly recommend that you incorporate them into your English learning. Unlike many language learning activities, listening to a podcast can be very conventient. I listen on the train, while I exercise, and while I fold the laundry.
After a good look at my podcast library, I have identified some shows that I think are ideal for English learning. They are short, educational, and the hosts speak more slowly and in plain language.
The World in Words: This podcast is about language — everything from bilingual education to the globalization of English to Icelandic insults.
99% Invisible: This podcast is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world.
Kind World: This podcast is about compassion. Through stories big and small, the show explores the effect one act can have on a life, to better understand each other and ourselves.
