To learn languages through intensive listening, you would definitely need a ideal MP3 player. Recently I bought a Samsung K5, which makes me very satisfied, that I want to pass that happiness along.
It has a built-in Stereo, which can be slided very smoothly. So I can slide it off and set it on the floor, chair, or table while I am doing the dishes, mopping the floor, eating, or going to the toilet. It’s so handy that I could listen to improve my listening every time and everywhere. And, your body won’t be stripped by your earphone line; also, you don’t have to worry about liquid dripping down and ruin the MP3 player.
Besides, it does your ear good because you spend less time wearing earphones.
I get used to watching TV when I’m having my meals. Now I change into listening English and Japanese while I’m eating. I eat less and lose my weight(we are unaware of how much we eat while using our mind too much…best e.g.->Watching TV). I believe this kind of accumulation should be very helpful for both my English and health.
There’s only one pity that it’s not convenient to bring it while you’re doing sports. But I think it’s ok because I’d never ever listened to MP3 after I knew from the research papers that listening to MP3 while we are running or doing other sports would cause at least three times of damage to ears( because the blood are going to other parts of the body, not stay around our ears). Next time if you see your friends listening an ipod shuffle 2 while they are running, you’d better persuade them to get rid of it and suggest them a Samsung K5.
Once K5 is fully charged(by USB), it can last at most 6 hours of continuous playing by the stereo and 30 hours by earphones. Very powerful electricity.
If you’re looking for a weapon to company with LingQ, Samsung is a very good choice
