One of the greatest things about podcasts is also the amount of material designed to teach languages already out there. I think you're absolutely right to start with creating podcasts in the classroom, because I believe that's where the motivation is to be found. But good listening material for free? Gotta be worth a mention, too ;-)

Our own attempts at podcasting have been quite basic - not got into the editing and mixing, yet another new skill to aquire!

Hopefully will have some ticket buying conversations on our own blog tomorrow.

Dear Lynne,

When you listen to the podcast, you'll hear my editing and mixing skills are far from perfect! However, I don't think it is vital that this sort of podcast has beautiful segues or is expertly mixed.

You've made it clear in your Linguanet forum discussion that your blog has been designed as a communication tool for you and your pupils. I think that's great.

I'm very pleased with our first podcast, but it was the preparation and recording part of the process which was the most interesting, from a learning point of view. I played the pupils examples of audio files and podcasts (including your short sound dialogues) and it was brilliant to see how serious they took their work once they realised what it was they were trying to make! (What is Mr Dale banging on about now!)

This is still very much early days for me too. When I set up a pupil blog my idea is to include short sound clips as well as longer podcasts. I won't have the time to be editing long sections of recorded speech, choosing Creative Commons music to add and then mixing it all together. In any case short clips are more immediate and I'm sure the pupils would like to be able to download them to their mp3 players, soon after they were recorded.

Once you've had a listen, I'd be very interested in your comments.

Cheers Lynne
