Last September 28, 2012, I delivered a free webinar for my Computers in Education (EDUC 190) class.
In the webinar, I talked about how one can become a polyglot (for free!) just by listening to language learning podcasts. I also shared my experience in learning Spanish by listening to podcasts like Coffee Break Spanish, One Minute Spanish and Spanish Pod. I also talked about how I improved my Italian speaking skills by making my own learn Italian podcast, Parli Italiano.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Admit it or not, learning a foreign language can be costly. Usually, you have to enroll in a class while some prefer investing in foreign language learning materials like books and audio CDs. But unknown to many, you can actually learn a foreign language for free at your own time and at the pace you like. This webinar aims to teach you how you can learn a foreign language by listening to podcasts. This webinar will also share how you can improve your foreign language speaking skills by making your own podcast.
