"How do you say 'Podcast' in Spanish?" : Podcasting for Language Learning

Any language student will be familiar with that oft-repeated tip from teachers: listening to podcasts in their target language. And with good reason – podcasts are a great way to practise listening skills while running on the treadmill or cleaning the house, and they are becoming increasingly popular.

Semester 1 Summaries: Emily Teague

This year I started my second academic year at university, living in Smithdown as appose to last year when I lived in halls. The freedom of living in a house with all your friends is unmatched- I would highly recommend the area; great bus connections for university and two major supermarkets very close! I study Hispanic Studies and Italian and the two work very well together in my opinion. My favourite module for Italian has to be ITAL256 which is our grammar module, as learning grammar is the most interesting part of language learning for me. As for Hispanic Studies, I am really enjoying HISP218, which is a module focused on studying politics in the Basque Country. Every module you will study at Liverpool is extremely engaging, as they ask for students’ opinions all the time, and mould most of the modules around your interests- it is very flexible which is great!
