Posted by shashi on November 12, 2006

Podcasting is the great media for language learning and there are some good podcast out there which can help us to improve our English. There are some learners who don’t know much about podcasting and that’s why I have decided to introduce this to others.In simple terms, podcast is nothing but an audio file that you can download on your computer. Podcasters record their episode and publish it online on the net and you can download it by using some software.

If you want to download podcast then you need specific software. The most common and easy to use software is iTunes. First you have to download this software. For this just click on this link http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and follow the instructions. Once you have installed iTunes then you can download various podcasts just by clicking on iTunes address provided below. When you click podcast address (as few of them provided below) iTunes podcast page will open. Then just click on Subscrite button and you will get download all episodes of that perticular podcast.
