I bought an ipod specifically to learn Spanish. Spanishpod101 has been terrific for the whole family. I even got my ten-year-old son (adopted from Guatemala) to start listening to Survival and Newbie lessons. (Learning Spanish is a major family goal!) I listen during my walk or bus ride to work daily. When we were traveling in Costa Rica this summer, we all took turns listening to our level of spanishpod101 when we had several-hour transit rides on the interbus between destinations. The verb series has been particularly good for both me (a lower intermediate) and my partner (an upper intermediate) -- great for a thorough introduction and review, and the style of presentation is very engaging.


You have really thought this out and made it fun. Thanks so much!

I wasn't even interested in learning a new language, that is until I downloaded one of the Spanish apps for the iPhone. Now I can't get enough . Spanish iPod . Com has turned me into a language learning fool.

We use the iTouch in class...I have my students do their speaking assignments with a partner and record. I then collect and plug it in. This frees up other time for my students to get more done in class. Also, I assign them to do speaking activities at home. I think it is a great tool, because they get accustomed to listening to themselves speak and are able to correct their pronunciation before they turn in a finished product. We also use the dictionary ap and podcasts for class. The podcasts are very beneficial for my higher levels as they are able to put their spanish knowledge to work for them and they realize they know more than they think!!!

My problem isn't so much learning Spanish, it is retaining what I've learned for more than an hour. Whether I'm using my iPod Touch or iPad, I have found a number of ways to increase my brain's sticky ability.


First and foremost, SpanishPod101.com is a great resource. Since you have lessons at all different levels, it is a cinch to learn new words and phrases while reinforcing concepts and grammar you already know. I listen while driving, down time at work or just enjoying my morning café.


On the iPad, I can listen to JP's highly-detailed grammar points and read the lesson notes at the same time -- from anywhere (well, not while I'm driving.)


I've taken all your basic feed podcasts (and a big thanks for making them available) and put them in smart playlists. If I'm not feeling at peak learning ability, I drop down a level and relisten to old shows. I always struggle with pronunciation, and revisiting those lessons give me a boost for practicing my double r trills.


I like your WordPower app to give me a jolt of Spanish when I get a spare moment -- a great shot of increased brain stickiness.


Really, the iPod and and iPad have changed language learning so much and your lessons provide me with a language-learning lab I carry around everywhere.

I'm learning three languages: Italian, French & Spanish, one a day (Italian, French, Spanish, Italian, French, Spanish...).

The files are updated into iTunes about once a week, where I created a new playlist to all the 'Newbie' level lessons, in the three languages. Then it's uploaded into my iPod touch, which I use when working at my clients' sites or on the way. I then recap the lesson reading the notes. My routine is to hear two lessons a day.


Beside hearing the great podcasts, I'm using an OpenOffice's Calc document to organized vocabulary list of my three learning languages. Once a month those lists are copied to the great flash-cards application 'Teach2000', which I use almost daily. To the moment, my list contains 950 words, and I'm dictating about 30 words a day, randomly.


I also try to read from time to time the 'Corriere Della Sera' and 'Le Figaro' (sorry, my Spanish is yet not good enough to read Spanish). Technology and Sport are usually good subject to read, especially if I already have previous knowledge with the topic, since it's enables me to connect to ideas and the words I read with the facts I already know.


Good Luck for all of you :razz:

I've never owned an I-pod or even and MP3 player but being on the road the past year has me seriously considering a purchase. I really need to be studying as I go and my laptop just isn't cutting it anymore :P

time for an upgrade :D
