In order to become fluent in a new language, individuals must immerse themselves in what they're learning, which is why Duolingo's podcasts will serve as a valuable language-learning tool for those looking to expand their knowledge.
The podcast episodes will act as lessons with the broader aim of enabling listeners to hear real conversations in Spanish. Through this system, those with a basic understanding of the language can continue to practice their skills as they go about their daily activities, like cleaning the house or commuting to work.
In the podcast's first episode the host, Martina Castro, tells the story of a journalist who had the opportunity to meet their childhood hero. Duolingo's podcasts are available through iTunes, Soundcloud, Google Play Music and Spotify.
