Aswaat Arabiyya

This website is super cool. Click on the title of this posting to go to the site. Mahmoud Al-Batal (project director) showed it to a group of us at a teacher training session in 2003. I forgot about this website for some time until the author of a new Arabic learning blog "The Arabist" at posted it recently. The website contains television programs in Arabic from the Middle East for students of varying levels of Arabic knowledge. One of the coolest things about this site is that you can slow down some of the video clips for careful listening. The project is hosted by Emory College in Atlanta.

Check it out and enjoy! (Click on the title of this post to go to the site for Aswaat Arabiyya)

I was also looking for something similar to that and it's hard to find...!
¿do you have links for hearing radios in arabic?

My favorite online radio station is BBC Arabic. You can listen to live radio broadcasting or just the main news of the hour.

Oh! Thanks again Jeremy!
I have been looking for radio and "podcast" in arabic and I have found some information:
(If you don't know what a podcast is, you can read it in Wikipedia). Click in the link to see the correspondant URL...

* Sibaq Al Aghani (سباق الأغاني العربية) is the arabic music radio broadcast of Radio Montecarlo
* Muslim Starz is a religious broadcast of Online International Islamic Nasheed Radio Station

Actually I'm not specially interested in both radios, but I hope that soon, with radios like Aljazeera or BBC, "podcast" will be very useful for us, arabic students!

If you are looking for other radio links, Juanma, you can also try the Tunis National Radio:

Radio MonteCarlo is also an excellent means of listening to Arabic and its programming is mixed with interviews and music...
