Radio, a mean to learn languages

Not long time ago, I used to listen to short wave stations (SW). When listening to these international broadcasts I improved quite a lot my English listening skills. Moreover, I enjoyed so much discovering new countries and its culture, people, history, gastronomy, etc.

Right now, you can easily listen to international and local radio stations from around the world. You just need to have a WiFi radio set or a smartphone (preferably with WiFi).

The best advice is to listen for a while a radio station of your target language everyday. Also, you can download podcasts of your favourite programmes and listen to them whenever you feel like.

You can start listening to international stations. They speak slower and are easy to understand as they target foreign audiencies.

Most of them also broadcast language courses that you can find in their web pages.

You can search  local and international broadcasters in different directories:

Above all, do not forget to listen to radio in your target language everyday. You'll notice soon how much you improve.

Also, you can write a comment if you know more tips about learning languages.
