There is consistent evidence which shows that technology can and does improve attainment in almost all subjects. However, many teachers, who belong to the digital immigrant group, are not as plugged in with ICT [Information and Communication Technologies] as most of their students --digital natives--, and often feel scared to work with a new medium they are not familiar with. Two are the goals of this paper: the first one is to show how beneficial the use of ICT can be in our classes, specially in the teaching of listening skills, and the second one is to describe how to make the most of free, easy-to-use links to teach and practice L2 listening both inside and outside the classroom walls. All in all, we want to present the use of these tools as a challenge which is not so difficult to achieve and which will facilitate both our teaching and our students' learning process and practice to a great extent. (Contains 9 figures, 1 table, and 1 footnote.)
