Eikaiwa Podcasting

Publisher ALC has launched a new website for English language learners based around podcasting. The booming technology, similar to radio on demand, allows users to download sound files to their iPod (hence the name) or other MP3 players. Several companies have started to take advantage of the technology in the English language learning business, but ALC are likely to be one of the biggest. The new site, SPACE ALC Podcasting Station, was launched Monday. It features a directory of podcasts, English conversation programs, a Hearing Marathon that features native speakers talking about a variety of topics, TOEIC practice, and an advice column by author Ishihara Mayumi.
