I found your Web site a few months ago and was so happy to find something to help with the transition from 'advanced spanish' to actual fluency. I've gone all the way through Pemsleur (twice), the State Department series (three times), and Michel Thomas, and still cannot really understand spoken Spanish. On News in Slow Spanish, I can.
I've gone back to the first episodes (for the grammar in particular) and am trying to work my way from there back to the present. I hope to catch up in a month or so. I was surprised at how useful the quizzes are -- I hate quizzes! -- but these are extremely good practice. I usually have to work through them more than once to get rid of all the red markup.
My favorite section is Explorando America Latina. I find that now when I listen to BBC's Mundo Hoy, I can follow far more than I could before. I plan to begin volunteering with the Florida Literacy Coalition, working with Spanish-speaking people here.
...let me give high praise to whoever originated NewsInSlowSpanish and to those who produce it. My knowledge of Spanish vocabulary and grammar--the "nuts and bolts" of the language--is fairly extensive, and I can speak it fairly well. What I can't do yet is understand the spoken language well. I'm already seeing an improvement after listening to NewsInSlowSpanish for just 3 or 4 weeks, and I feel sure that this improvement will translate eventually to understanding the often rapid-fire Spanish of people on the street.
I wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoy your broadcasts. I am a beginning Spanish student and your program has skyrocketed my vocabulary as well as my comprehension and listening skills. There are plenty of Spanish news sites in audio as well as video but this one is the only one I have been able to find that is geared to the beginning student. Please don't ever, ever, ever stop providing this wonderful service to all us newbies out there. I look forward to each new program and listen to each one many times.
Thank you all very much,
