今回はESL PODCASTというサイトのご紹介です。
10$/monthで利用できる英語初級者向きな有料配信サービス。
ですがgoogle play からESL PODCAST(unofficial)という再生アプリをinstallすると、なぜかアカウント登録しなくても利用できてしまいます。
で肝心のサービスはというと、、


ひとつの配信で20~30分程度です。
・最初に1~2分程度のスクリプトをかなりゆっくりしたスピードで、
・次にそのスクリプトの解説、
・最後に通常のスピードで文章を読み上げる、
という3段構成になってます。
一応offical siteにあったWhat is ESL Podcast?を引用しておきます。
