Why News in Slow Spanish?
Innovative
We are at the forefront of creating immersive language learning content. Created by an international team of linguists and journalists, our one-of-a-kind program has been enjoyed by individuals, schools, and universities since 2011.
Engaging
Always on point. We call it “virtual immersion.” Each week, we bring you fresh ideas, conversation and culture, designed specifically to boost your comprehension so you can stop translating and follow the discussion.
Efficient learning
We emphasize key aspects of language learning, using real language in way that makes sense. Our method makes it possible for you to listen, read, and start thinking in Spanish.
Always on
Study Spanish on the go – at your desk, in the classroom, on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Study Spanish. Stay Informed.

Get ready for immersion – use a new language to express yourself and understand someone else.

Listen to the conversation, follow along with the interactive transcripts, and you will be amazed to discover that you know more Spanish than you think!

We offer various subscription levels to meet your needs, from an audio-only podcast to a rigorous educational course including interactive transcripts, Spanish grammar and expressions lessons, grammar quizzes and pronunciation of full Spanish sentences.

See for yourself if our program is right for you! Our free demo episode will give you a sense of what we offer without having to sign up for anything.



Not quite there yet? We’ll help you get up to speed. Our two hosts take you on a journey from basic Spanish sentences to full immersion in Spanish conversation, step by step. You’ll be surprised – you know more Spanish than you think! Check out our Get Up to Speed (G.U.T.S.) program.

Our Philosophy – learn faster by going slow


Our goal is to entertain, inform, and educate our users in active language learning. We present our programs at a pace that allows you to follow along and better absorb information. In doing so, we actually put you on the fast track to a deeper understanding that ultimately leads to meaningful results.

No gimmicks!


We want you to try our program for yourself before deciding if it’s for you.

What people are saying about us


Many of our subscribers have shared their praises and thoughts on what we do. Here is just a small sample:

...Wow!, do I like this! This is exactly what I need. I appreciate that it's a lot of work to make, involving sound, transcriptions, and even hyperlinked translations for more difficult words.I'm also a user of Yabla.com, which is a subscription-based video service. Yabla features a software option to slow down the videos, but that's not as good as what you do to solve the "too fast" problem. Yabla had to invest a lot in software development....

Just a quick email to thank you for the weekly episodes! I'm a New Zealander, and am flying to Colombia next week to visit my (bilingual English/Spanish) girlfriend. For the last three months I’ve been working on developing some basic Spanish skills so that I can surprise her when I arrive, and your episodes have been a great help in getting me accustomed to hearing Spanish in a natural conversation setting. I now understand about 70% of what is said in the episodes, up from 50% when I started listening to them 10 weeks ago. Progress!

I just signed up for my second membership in News in Slow Spanish, and I wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoy and am benefiting from your podcasts. I have been attending Spanish school in Buenos Aires for the past three weeks and have four weeks to go before returning to the US. In addition to four hours of Spanish class each day, I've downloaded past News in Slow Spanish programs to my i-pod and am listening to one-a-day. My comprehension skills are improving dramatically. Please keep up the good work.
