More and more web 2.0 technologies are being implemented in education; examples include podcasts, Wiki, and blogs. Bonk (2007), for example, demonstrated how these emerging technologies can be integrated into participatory learning environments. With these new technologies, learners can overcome physical distance; physical distance is not the solely definitive distance for learners any more. Under these circumstances, this study aims to explore effective use of podcasts to empower English learning for EFL students. By implementing podcasts in class, it is found that podcasts are beneficial because of their authentic contents, accumulation of chronologically ordered contents with Really Simple Syndication (RSS), mobile learning, and free subscription. Thus podcasts are definitively one option to consider for empowering English learning.
