Why Should You Listen to a Language Podcasts?
In today’s busy culture, finding time for hobbies and interests is hard. In between taking children to soccer practice and Pilate classes with Jenn, you spend a great deal of time with everyday tasks you’ve become an expert in, like driving, cooking or folding laundry.
You can optimize your time to make use of every minute, learning a new skill while walking your dog or performing other work.
Language learning apps help students learn vocabulary basics, but they do little to immerse learners in the conversation. Using and listening to the language is an essential part of learning to use the language in real-life situations.
Coffee Break transforms mundane activities into engaging lessons where learners can listen to lectures, practice pronunciation and learn new vocabulary without ever stepping foot into a classroom.
