With a 15% increase in the number of podcast users around the world each month, it has become one of the most discussed educational technologies (Podcasting in the Classroom 2008, p.7). It provides educators with a variety of teaching strategies to tackle the needs of the students. Jowitt (2008, p.15) suggests that the advantages of podcasts include the mobility of the device and the flexibility of the content, which eases student learning. In Hong Kong, most students lack exposure to English. Since the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997, the Hong Kong government has adopted Chinese as the medium of instruction. Hong Kong students do not have enough opportunity to use English, even at school (Standing Committee on Language Education and Research 2003). New technology may be able to build up their motivation in language learning. It is worthwhile investigating whether podcasts can increase students’ interest in the language.Listening to podcasts is usually done in our leisure time which is the time that we are free and have no important activities to do, therefore, we can name it a kind of extensive listening. Extensive listening is generally defined as learners “doing a lot of easy, comprehensible, and enjoyable listening practice” (Chang & Millett, 2013). The act of listening to podcasts not only can bolster learners’ listening skills but also it can fortify some other language areas such as pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, speaking. As everybody knows when learning a language our focus must be on all the skills and if one focuses on just one or some of them, one may miss out on them.“Extensive listening typically involves large quantities of aural target language input that interests students and is within their linguistic competence (Renandya & Farrell, 2010; Yeh, 2013)”. Usually in traditional language classrooms teachers do not focus on learners’ listening competence and much of the time of the class is wasted for teaching grammar rules and as students grow older they come to know that they are terrible at listening and can do nothing but sorrow. “Podcasts provide teachers with the possibilities of facilitating language learning and also challenge the traditional teaching and learning methods”. “Traditional classrooms do not give more importance to listening activities (Lee & Chan, 2007)”. That traditional classrooms are not really a fan of listening is because of the fact that their focus and purpose is totally different from the classes we take part in nowadays.
