We’re now in prime vacation season, and so we figured that we’d highlight several ways in which Open Culture can enrich your summer travels — all for free.
- First and foremost, if you’re traveling to another country, and if you want to speak the mother tongue, then spend some time with our collection of foreign language lesson podcasts. The collection currently covers over 25 languages, so there is a very good chance that we can meet your travel needs.
- Next, if you plan to do a good long road trip, you should sort through our collection of audiobook podcasts. Our list, which gives you access to 90 masterpieces in literature and classics, can help the long travel hours effortlessly slide by.
- A vacation is always a good time to learn something new and worthwhile. Here are five courses from Stanford University, available as free podcasts, that were created with the lifelong learner in mind. So they were essentially custom-made for you. (You can also find here a long list of free courses from other major universities, including MIT, Berkeley, Harvard, Oxford, and Johns Hopkins.)
- Looking for some free Mozart, Beethoven, or Miles Davis to enrich your experience? Find free podcasts in our Music section. See our complete collection of podcasts here.
