Greek audio and podcasts to improve your listening skills

podcast summer sale

Greek Audio files or podcast episodes are very popular, and becoming easier to access, thanks to new technology, apps, smartphones, etc..
Technology is changing non-stop, for good or for bad, but we try to focus on the good 🙂

Since listening to audio recordings or Podcasts really help to learn Greek, at masaresi we focus a lot on that, to keep you happy!

The reason for the popularity the recent years is mainly because it allows you to listen to a language, while you are doing something else, such as driving, walking, cooking,….you name it!   In our modern times, we like to do two things at the same time 🙂

What is the difference between audio and podcast?

You can listen to audiobooks, audio files or podcasts on any smartphone, tablet, computer, home speaker system, or in-car built system.
Recently, it seems the word “podcast” became “hot and popular” and the word “audio” became a bit  “banal, boring” :-), so a small intro of “what is what”…


 What is an audio file?

  • an audio-file is delivered over the Internet in a compressed digital format and designed for playback on computers, smartphones or portable digital audio players. One of the most common audio formats is the MP3 file.
    So, a file with the .mp3  file extension is one of the most commonly distributed audio files used today
    We can link to such a file in our Blog articles, eBooks and website, or we can even send you such a file by email attachment.

What is a podcast?

Typically, a podcast is an audio that is released on a regular schedule and allows subscribers to get new episodes on a regular basis.
Simply put: a podcast is an audio program, just like Talk Radio,
but you subscribe to it on your smartphone or computer and listen to it whenever you like.

The advantage is that you can listen to them any time, any place, rather than be stuck to the radio at the same time each week.
So a podcast is a series of spoken word, audio episodes, all focused on a particular topic or theme and scheduled on a regular basis.

What is an audiobook?

An audiobook is a recording of a book or other work being read out loud. So you listen to a book, instead of reading it.
Or, you can read the book, while you also listen to it at the same time. This is very helpful when learning a foreign language.
So audiobooks are voice recordings of the text of a book that you listen to.
Most audio files are mp3. files, which are easy to download to your computer and use “off-line” as well.
