这两天在网上搜了点关于Podcast的资料,写了一篇文章,可是被退了回来,说我写的东西是copy其他地方的东西,可我看了Proz给我的网站链接,我可是第一次看到这个网站,不过我写的很多句子也确实从网上搜来的,有些我改动了一两个词,也有些句子是我自己写的。说实在话,我的英语写作水平实在太差,写这篇文章也只是为了练习。现在copy不copy不重要了,目的只是想介绍用Podcast学习英文,我现在也正在用这个东东学习英语听力。
Podcast是有很多免费的英语学习资源,我用的是iTunes软件,从Apple网站下载的,安装之后,点击软件打开窗口左侧的iTunes Store,即登陆到商店主页,点击左侧的Podcasts,新窗口CATEGORIES中的Education,既可以看到很多英语、日语、西班牙语和中文的学习节目,以英文居多。点击某个节目后,出现的窗口中点击SUBSCRIBE既可获得这个节目的全部内容。等下载后,可以在软件窗口的Podcast中看到下载的内容,点击既可开始收听。
提示:软件最好安装在D盘或其他分区中(不在C盘就行),而且在编辑----偏好设置-----高级中,把iTunes Music的存储位置改在D盘,要不然下了几个G的东西,C盘就受不了了。
iTunes Store中Podcast的其他内容非常广泛,包括艺术、商务、医药等节目,甚至BBS,ABC,NRR等各大媒体都有专题节目,资源实在太多了,根据自己的爱好选择吧。
这一切完全免费,当然也有付费的电影和音乐,你可以根据需要决定是否付费了。


关于Podcast的定义,我是从这个网站http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcasting复制的,本来我的文章是带链接的,但是提交之后就不见了。
我练习写的一点东东:
The best way to learn a language is to live in a country where they speak it for 6 months or a year. Unfortunately, that's not always practical. You can actually make considerable progress in language learning by yourself. The modern technology might help those of you who have been planning on learning a language some day.
Getting some good software is a helpful tactic you can try. With software, it's usually easy to set your own pace. The iTunes software is the best choice to learn a language freely; you can subscribe many Podcast language programmes to learn.
What is a Podcast?
A podcast is a multimedia file distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds, for playback on mobile devices and personal computers. The term, as originally coined by Ben Hammersley in an article in The Guardian February 12, 2004 [1], was meant as a portmanteau of "broadcasting" and "iPod".[2] Like 'radio', it can mean both the content and the method of delivery; the latter may also be termed podcasting. The host or author of a podcast is often called a podcaster.
Download and install the iTunes
iTunes is a Podcast enabled program, it can be free downloaded at http://www.apple.com/itunes/download. With iTunes installed you can start listening to Podcasts. We highly recommend having high-speed Internet access before subscribing to your podcasts.
Browsing and downloading podcasts
Podcasts are downloadable radio-style audio shows. Podcasts with a display icon next to them also show video. You also can download podcasts using the iTunes Store. The iTunes Store can be seen on the left side of the window when you open the software. Unless marked otherwise, podcasts are free.
• To browse for podcasts at the iTunes Store, click iTunes Store in the Source list, then click the Podcasts link on the left side of the main page and then click Education in the Categories. Click a language podcast to see a list of recent episodes. There are many language podcasts in the main window, such as English, French, Chinese, Spanish, Japanese etc.
• To download a single podcast episode, click the Get Episode button next to the episode.
• To subscribe to a podcast, click the Subscribe button next to the podcast graphic. iTunes downloads the most recent episode. As new episodes become available, they are automatically downloaded to iTunes (when you are connected to the Internet).
• If you know the Internet address of a podcast feed, you can subscribe to it without using the Music Store. Choose Advanced > "Subscribe to Podcast" and enter the URL. You can usually find the URL of a podcast on that podcast's webpage.
• To set the frequency iTunes checks for new subscription podcast episodes, choose Edit > Preferences and click Podcasts. Then choose an option from the "Check for new episodes" pop-up menu.
• To set the number of subscription podcast episodes iTunes automatically downloads, choose Edit > Preferences and click Podcasts. Then choose an option from the "When new episodes are available" pop-up menu. If you choose "Do nothing," new episodes appear dimmed in the Podcasts playlist. You must click the Get button next to the episode to download it.
Now you can playback the multimedia files on mobile devices (eg. portable mp3/mp4 player) and personal computers.

第二个链接我连不上,看不到内容。
我写这些只是为了介绍Podcast,写成英文主要是为了介绍一点中文学习的资源,现在在这里贴出来,只是想和大家分享一下这个资源,大家各取所需吧。希望对想学习语言的人有点帮助。

Han Li,

This is a very interesting topic. Apple's ipod/itunes is indeed a great tool for learning a foreign language. IMO many here could benefit from this thread you started.

I just happened to get an ipod over the weekend, and have been fiddling with itunes non-stop. So far I got quite a few of my CD titles loaded into my itunes library. It's a cinch to further sync it up with the ipod. Now I'm taking my ipod everywhere I go.

Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing May 2, 2007

They say this is a popular podcast. According to its Wikipedia page, it boasts a listenership of 2 million plus after its launch late last year.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammar_Girl's_Quick_and_Dirty_Tips_for_Better_Writing


Why not take advantage of it?

Just download the iTunes software from Apple's website and search for "Grammar Girl".

http://www.apple.com/itunes/


Here's an alternative site where Grammar Girl posts the transcripts of her podcast episodes:

A treasure trove May 2, 2007

Another sister series that could be helpful in learning some customs...

Mr. Manners' Quick and Dirty Tips For A More Polite Life

http://manners.qdnow.com/

... which is also available in iTunes.

Brainier topics, such as Bill Moyer's journal, Anderson Cooper 360 Degrees Daily, etc. are also some great podcasts!

Best sources of languages and cultures May 2, 2007

Dear Xiao Han,

The internet is wonderful at bringing the whole world to your finger tips. I appreciate the wealth of information it brings. But what I found to be the best sources are still around each one of us in the environment we live, not from some far off places.

Copying past experiences is a learning tradition, that works very well and that's how most of us learned. It is OK to copy just for learning. I frequently read articles or theses by scholars who copy one another; there is not much that is new on earth I guess. So, oddly enough for me, the best ingredients usually come from people who do not consider themselves to be "cultured" at all.

To create though, is to assemble something new in your own words or thoughts rather. The inspiration for that usually comes from people who have never even seen a scholar or would feel uncomfortable if they meet one. The farmer riding a donkey has far more to tell than a scholar reading a book. I betya!

Mr. Manners' Quick and Dirty Tips For A More Polite Life

谢谢wherestip先生,第一个我以前就收藏的有,也是浏览iTunes Store时发现的,第二个Podcast我还以前没有发现,等会先收藏。

也很感谢沈先生,现在回过头来看看我学英语的经历,都学了十几年了,英语写作还是不怎么样,口语就更别提了,我觉得我最大的问题就是没有坚持下来,刚学的时候壮志凌云,学着学着就没了开始的劲头,早忘记了拳不离手,曲不离口的古训。
还有一个问题就是,我不能用英语自由地表达自己的思想,不能自由地写出自己想说的话,我其实想用英文回复这个帖子,但是如果我想用英文把这段话表达出来时,却不知道如何正确的表达出来某些词句。也许原因还是我没有勤加练习,没有身处英语的大环境之下而缺少锻炼。不知道其他学习英语的朋友有没有我这样的困惑?
网络的确是个好的资源,我最近又发现一个学习语言的免费网站,可以向世界各地的人学习他们的语言。当然,你得有足够的精力。:-)
这个资源就是Kantalk,网址:
http://www.kantalk.com/
简单注册一下就可以了,然后可以找到一个身处其他国家的朋友,通过交谈学习他们的语言和文化,如果他们想学习你的语言,正好可以互相学习。但是目前我还没有时间开始,只有等6、7月份毕业后再说了。
不知其他各位有没有什么好的英语学习经验,也分享一下。:-)
