Mark Pentleton from Coffee Break Spanish has decided to relaunch the innovative VERBcast he made three years ago during his time as coordinator of the Partners in Excellence Project (PiE) in the west of Scotland. A series of twenty episodes, the podcast is designed to help listeners improve their understanding of French grammar using relaxation techniques and their imagination.
As with other language learning podcasts from The Radio Lingua Network, the VERBcast is available as a free download and is intended to be used as a personal listening resource not as a whole class activity. Why not encourage your pupils to listen to the VERBcast just before they fall asleep on their mp3 player? Imagine what the results could be!
For more background information about the evolution of the VERBcast and the PiE project in general, have a listen to the interview I did with Mark recently at PodCampUK where I recall fond memories of listening to the VERBcast for the first time and how it inspired me to start podcasting myself.
Now that the PiE project has officially ended, it's nice to welcome back one of its crown jewels.
