Podcasting for the classroom

Podcasts can be a great way to introduce authentic accents, pronunciation, and content in the Spanish classroom. Español Podcast is one of a great resource for this very practice. This website has fabulous podcasts, pictures, vocabulary explanations, and a blog. I found this particular podcast, Platos españoles, very interesting. I could use clips of this in the classroom when teaching food vocabulary or when doing a unit on traditional dishes from various Spanish speaking countries. The women are both Spanish and are talking about the gastronomy of the different regions of Spain. This podcast could be used as a listening activity, students could hear a Barcelona Spanish accent, a reading activity, students could focus on the different types of food by region, or to learn and practice food vocabulary. This is a great resource!
