Perfecting foreign language learning with podcasts
Our podcasts are audio contents that accompany you everywhere in your daily life
Listening to content in English familiarizes you with the different English accents.
The more content you listen to in English, the more your brain memorizes and appropriates the language.
Thus, you improve your “spoken” English in a playful and original way.
To make the sessions more interesting and useful, the topics are oriented towards culture, history and daily life.
Our podcasts can be listened to alone or with the family.
