Podcasts to Listen to Learn English

Going to class and studying your weekly vocabulary is a very important part of learning English. However, in order to really learn a language to the best of your ability, you need to have other ways of incorporating English into your daily life. Podcasts are a wonderful way for students to learn English because it improves listening skills and gives students more inexperience with conversational English and American culture. Here is a list of three podcasts you should incorporate into your day! 

1.    Stuff You Missed in History Class 

For many people, history can be a boring subject; however, Holly Frey and Tracy Wilson are two history enthusiasts who discuss major events of the past in such an interesting and engaging way. They introduce a variety of historical events that they might skip or glaze over in a normal history class with each episode. 

This podcast is a wonderful way for students to learn about American and World History as well as get an ear for the English language. 

2.     The Nerdist 

The Nerdist is a very fun podcast where a group of friends discuss a variety of trends that they used to enjoy from the past. This podcast discusses a variety of topics such as American movies, comic books, and video games.
