If you're considering whether or not you want to explore using podcasts as primary or supplementary texts, consider these benefits for students: Reading along with a podcast builds confidence and literacy. Word recognition (or "decoding") is the most crucial skill for very young students; however, with older students (middle school and upwards), decoding becomes more automatic, and listening comprehension becomes the primary component for learning language. Podcasts allow students to practice their listening comprehension of complex texts that are both conversational and formal, and the corresponding transcripts enable students to confirm their success. In addition, students learning English as a second language report that they like how they can read the words and promptly "hear how they're supposed to sound."
