Church and church planting

  • Lifeschool Podcast by Caesar Kalinowski. Recommended by Christian Bender. “In the Lifeschool Podcast we’ll show you (in about 25 minutes per episode) how the good news of the Gospel, and our Christian faith, can naturally and confidently be woven into any and every area of life. Each episode is pretty fast-paced, and even though it’s serious stuff, it can be funny too. We always wrap up with clear action steps for you to take away in the “Big Three”.

Language Learning

Yes, podcasts can help you with language learning. Some podcasts are designed for language learners and use simple vocabulary. Some actually will speak slowly! Most podcast players will also allow you to slow down the podcast play speed, and repeat sections easily, so that also helps you catch things you missed at normal conversation speed. Podcasts can expand your comprehension of topics and vocabulary in areas which your friends and language helpers might not use.
