Varia - podcasts


You're bored? It takes a minute to download any podcast and put it on your phone/mp3 player/i-pod, etc. Click on one of the links below, download some, put them on your phone, listen to three-four a day (each is more or less 15 min long).  Half an hour on your way to your destination spent listening to a podcast, may enrich your vocabulary & help you learn more about the world. 
Stop justifying yourself. Stop saying you have no time! Elementary, dear Student!
