How Teachers Use Podcasts to Improve English Skills

Lauer, Joe
This paper delineates how various English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers around the world use podcasts to improve their students’ skills. A comprehensive review of the literature and a series of email exchanges identified two widely-used pedagogical approaches: 1) Some teachers have students listen to popular podcasts outside of class, and then in class the students do various speaking and writing activities using the vocabulary and topics in the podcasts. 2) Other teachers have students create their own podcasts. Each of these techniques is explained in detail.
