Arabic Podcast from the BBC

Posted on 18. May, 2010 by in Arabic Language

For those interested, the BBC has just launched a couple of bilingual educational podcasts in Arabic and English. The first, BBCe! Best Bits, is a weekly podcast produced by the BBC in partnership with Egypt Radio. The podcast is aimed at those learning English, but I believe it can be useful for those learning Arabic too. There are also highlights from interesting news stories.

To listen to BBCe! Best Bits visit the BBC podcast page and subscribe to it: BBCe! Best Bits

An iPod is not required to listen to BBCe! Best Bits. But you will need an internet connection and a computer. You can subscribe through Google Reader, iTunes, or one of the other options made available to you. Alternatively you can listen to BBCe! Best Bits directly from the podcast page referenced above, where you will also have access to a brief description of the most recent episodes.

    السلام و عليكم يا محمد

    This is a great podcast, but I picked out very few words from the Arabic part. The speaker goes WAY too fast.

    Hey Aaron, وعليكم السلام

    Yes, unfortunately they do. There are a couple of more podcasts in Arabic actually. Perhaps you can find it helpful if you you paused and re-winded the material in your media player of choice. Although I imagine that would be frustrating, not to mention it will require a great deal of patience.
