The presentation aims to inform and demonstrate the advantages that podcasts offer, free, to improve the level of the student of English. It will be seen that not only podcasts created specifically for students of English, but also podcasts with other types of contents (in English) serve the purpose. Reference will also be made to research carried out recently with a group of students at the British Council, Valencia with respect to their degree of improvement in oral comprehension (Listening) according to the exposure to podcasts of each one outside the classroom. During and at the end of the presentation both presenters will ask and answer questions.
