Do you still remember those old days when our parents or grandparents sat down in the morning with their morning coffee and picked up the latest newspapers? They could sit through the whole breakfast with their favorite items.
Do you still remember those old days when our parents or grandparents sat down in the morning with their morning coffee and picked up the latest newspapers? They could sit through the whole breakfast with their favorite items. Now remember – when was the last time you had time to read something in the newspaper?
The popularity of newspapers, at least in the printed version, has fallen sharply in recent years. Many publishers went bankrupt and the rest went to electronic versions. We started to move away from the now outdated form and focused on consuming new content through the screens of our smartphones or laptops. It is this convenience and the ability to choose the receiver that made new media such as podcasts and audiobooks have gained enormous popularity in recent years. As reported in 2020 by Voxnest, the popularity of podcasts in Europe increased by 53% compared to previous years. In Poland alone, in the first half of 2020 (as announced by Spotify), podcasts were listened to as much as 300% (!) More hours than in the previous year! As a result, we are in the top ten of the fastest growing markets for podcasting in the world.
And this popularity does not decrease, which should not surprise anyone – we can listen to recorded broadcasts, audiobooks or others anywhere and anytime, through various platforms. All our focus is then based on the content and at the same time nothing prevents us from doing other activities or activities at this time.
There are other benefits to listening too. It has been proven that listening to foreign texts has a positive effect on our language learning! We learn then not only faster, but also the correct pronunciation, accents and intonation. But it is not everything! Researchers from the University of California at Berkeley proved in their research that our brain does not know the difference between a book being read and listened to. You can alternate these things and your head won’t mind! The benefits are the same on both sides, so why not think about some language exercises?
You can create a separate project from your blog (the number of projects is unlimited!) And choose one of the several available languages that you would like to learn. Then write handwritten texts that you would like to hear them sound or copy a foreign text and start learning with Hearme.ai!
