    Stop spacing out and stay focused on your work~~~!를 쓰려고... 스팸이 되었다....ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

오늘은 영어 공부에 도움이 되는 팟캐스트 Perfect25 English를 소개합니다.


그 동안 미뤄왔던 영어공부, 새해를 맞이하여 다시 시작하고픈 마음에

원어민처럼 되고자 당차게 CNN Students News를 들어보았지만,

제가 가진 영어실력이 너무 부족하여 다시 한번 좌절을 느꼈습니다...ㅠㅜ


이렇게 또 좌절감을 맛보고 영어를 멀리하게 되는건가라고 느낄 때 쯤...

우연히 Perfect25 English 팟캐스트를 청취하게 되었습니다.

유레카~! 가볍게 방송 하나를 들었을 뿐인데... 또 듣고 싶은 느낌!???

하루만에 지금까지 올라온 모든 방송을 다 들었네요...^^


무엇보다 저같은 직장인은 출퇴근 시간에 듣기 딱 좋은것 같아요!

30분 정도의 방송은 집중하기에 적당한 시간이기도 하고, 

라디오 방송처럼 가볍게 듣기 좋을만큼 구성과 내용도 좋습니다.

특히 루디아 쌤의 친절한 설명과 캡틴K 님의 깔끔한 진행 덕분에

매주 방송을 듣고, 영어공부를 하고 싶은 마음이 생겼어요~~!


혹시 저처럼 영어공부에 관심 있으신 분들은 한번 들어보시길 권장합니다.

아이폰 사용자는 기본적으로 설치되어 있는 팟캐스트를 이용하면 되시고,

안드로이드폰 사용자는 팟빵과 같은 어플을 설치, 이용하면 됩니다.

팟빵은 컴퓨터로도 이용가능 합니다! 아래의 링크를 참고하세요~


그럼 새해엔 Perfect25 English 팟캐스트를 들으며,

다시 영어공부를 열심히 시작해겠습니다~! 화이띵~~~
