Which other subjects could you podcast in? I think in things like music this would be useful to remember lots of keywords etc English you could speak about a book instead of writing it down you can listen to it English because sometimes we have conversations about poetry or stories in class and it would be helpful if all the points were recorded as we discuss them. Science & R.E -because it will help you to remember facts and keywords for your exam . 16. St. Michaels Year 10 French Podcasts
