Learning a language with an iPod

I’ve recently bought an iPod Nano. I’ve owned a Shuffle for a couple of years now (I won it in a drawing at the 2005 Embedded Systems Conference in San Francisco), and I wanted one that had a display that allowed me to pick and choose, as well as identify what was playing if I didn’t recognize it.

One reason was so that I could load some foreign-language lessons onto it – I ran across a magazine article some months ago extolling the benefits of such an approach. As a result, I’ve tracked down the following sites that have things I’ll be trying in future:

Japanese Pod 101

World Wide Learn

Foreign-language podcasts at Open Culture
