Content to consume when learning a new language

Content to consume when learning a new language
Preview

    1. Satirical news

    Whatever the equivalent of The Onion is in your target language.

    French: Le Gorafi

    Italian: Lercio

    Spanish (Spain): El Mundo Today

    Russian: Panorama

    2. Actual news

    Sometimes you can find a "slow" version in podcast form.

    3. Comprehensible input podcasts

    Silly Stories in Spanish is really fun if you're a beginner.

    4. Watch your favorite series in your target language

    5. Watch YouTube videos with the 'Language Reactor' Chrome extension

    6. Scroll TikTok and/or Instagram with an account created to consume content only in that language

    A mix of native content and videos aimed at learners of the language.

    7. Listen to music and read the lyrics

    There are also apps for this.

    8. A Babbel or Duolingo podcast

    I quite like the Babbel one for Spanish. If I remember correctly they have one for beginners while the Duolilngo one is only for intermediate learners, but I could be mistaken. I like that there's a voice speaking Spanish as well as someone explaining what's going on in English, without translating word for word. I've only listened to a few, I should get back to it.

    9. Podcasts that are not for learners of the language

    This can feel a bit too much if you're a beginner and I'm not sure how useful it is, but maybe it's worth it if you also have the transcript and you look up words. Interestingly, when I tried this with Entiende Tu Mente, I understood a lot more the second time I listened to the same episode.

    10. Read easy books
