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.

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:

Just wanted to say thank you for such a great learning tool!! I have been listening for only one month and I already feel my Spanish vocabulary and listening skills improving. The pace is just right, the stories are interesting, the speakers are fun to listen to and I look forward to plugging my phone in every day in the car to listen to train my ears a little more while driving. Your podcasts, transcripts and flashcards are exactly what I needed to take my Spanish up to the next level! I can't thank you enough!

...Thank you so much. The format in which you present not only the podcast, but also the interactive web-based transcript is perfect....

...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.
