Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

“I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.”
Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is an American movie-oriented pay-TV network operated by Turner Broadcasting System, a subsidiary of AT&T’s WarnerMedia. Launched in 1994, TCM is headquartered at Turner’s Techwood broadcasting campus in the Midtown business district of Atlanta, Georgia.
Historically, the channel’s programming consisted mainly of classic theatrically released feature films from the Turner Entertainment film library – which comprises films from Warner Bros. (covering films released before 1950) and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (covering films released before May 1986).
However, TCM now has licensing deals with other Hollywood film studios as well as its WarnerMedia sister company, Warner Bros. (which now controls the Turner Entertainment library and its own later films), and occasionally shows more recent films.
The channel is available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malta, Latin America, France, Greece, Cyprus, Spain, the Nordic countries, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
