Why do this? Being able to use topical and relevant material provides both you and your students with interesting and stimulating lessons. The more relevant the material is the more likely you are to gain both interest and attention. There are many sites that allow you to listen to the material freely but have disabled the ability to be able to right-click and save the content as an MP3 file. With this feature – whatever you can hear you can record*. It also means that you can record selected extracts of what you hear – pick and choose the bits that you want.
