Mobile Language

by AJ

I now have a tiny ipod shuffle and I love it... super small and light and therefore perfect for my nomadic lifestyle.

Im not hugely into music... rather I got it mostly to listen to books on tape while I commute to the Rangsit campus, sit in coffee shops, etc. Im NEVER in my apartment.. I sleep and shower there and thats it.

I highly recommend the mobile audiobook method.... using an MP3 player, ipod, CD walkman, or cheapie cassette player. Its a great way to get authentic language input. But one note-- dont waste time on boring "langage tapes". Go straight for real stories. [BAS students should STRONGLY consider an audiobook of Harry Potter!!]
