Something I got into in a big way this year was listening to podcasts. I used to read magazines, but problems with the post from the UK caused me to finally cancel them all. Instead, rather than playing music on my phone at moments of spare time, I now listen to spoken word podcasts on a variety of topics. Some are on serious, some are comedy, some are about things I have a particular interest in (music, sci-fi, maths, trivia, science etc). But all are free and it's a useful way to hear people speaking English at normal speed in a land where that's all too rare!
