Dust off a forgotten foreign tongue, debate the best ways to learn another language, pick up some slang in the local lingo, discuss regional dialects... It's all about being multi-lingual, baby.

JapanesePod101.com is a good one for various levels of Japanese. Fairly light-hearted but introduces words/phrases/grammar that are more regularly used than the "correct" terms you learn from textbooks or Pimsleur. Does anyone know of any other good Japanese podcasts?

Coffee Break Spanish is a great one for Spanish. Helped me out tremendously! They're on iTunes =)

I second ChinesePod as a great resource for learning Mandarin. The podcasts hosts are charming and friendly, and they try to teach what you'll hear and use in daily conversation.
If you're going to visit Beijing, get some tips from an expat on where to stay, where to eat, and where to have fun.
