I had a crazy idea the other day while thinking about the whole Podcasting thing. Basically, my big thing lately with reference to Podcasting has been to combine it with another task that takes time — namely excercise.
So, the idea is that if I need to catch up on news or
read take in a book, but I don’t want to “waste” that time doing only that. That’s where the combo with excercise comes in; doing this I can basically kill the proverbial two birds with one stone — soaking in new information while getting some sort of workout at the same time. Walking, by the way, is very good for thought stimulation in my experience.
Anyway, so the new idea here is to get some language courses in MP3 format and get them to my iPod. Then, if I want to spend a week brushing up on my Spanish, or learning Italian, I can do it while excercising.
So yeah, I’m enthused about the idea. Now I just have to find some good language learning materials. Any thoughts?
