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.

We set off from our campground, Liberty Harbor RV Park, on bikes to Liberty State Park. From there, we catch our ferry to Ellis Island. We use the free audio tour headphones to learn all about immigration and the facilities at Ellis Island before the kids earn their junior ranger badges. Then, it’s back on the ferry towards the Statue of Liberty National Monument. We had pedestal tour tickets, so we climb the pedestal and take in the views.
