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:

For me News is Slow Spanish is so valuable that I am on my 2nd subscription. I try to listen an hour a day. Admittedly, I get off on tangents, like…"what is the verb?" I get sidetracked too. This morning I dictionaried gustar to relearn it also means "to taste". I tangent off on geography too. Where's that place? Ten minutes later I am back to NSS and my 60 minutes of listening is really 20 or 30. I use the flash cards too. But every week I hear a little more than the week before. I live in Seattle with an varied selection of language schools, some of which I have attended, but NSS is efficient learning at my pace and level. If you are coachable, if you follow the instructions and spend the time NSS might be the best bang for your time and money. It is for me.

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!

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,
