In doing so, we actually put you on the fast track to a deeper understanding that ultimately leads to meaningful results.

No gimmicks!

...I must say, this site is the best spanish site someone can find. The tools are great. One can lesson and learn at the same time. therefore can familiarize him/herself with the pronunciation and ability to remember the true meaning of spanish words. Thank you very much for your service and keep up the good work.

I have been using News in Slow Spanish for several months and would like you to know how much I appreciate and admire your work. The program is brilliantly designed and versatile to use. No other program I have ever come across does a better job of providing what Stephen Krashen calls “comprehensible input.” Congratulations on a fine accomplishment. I hope you continue turning out your weekly programs for a long, long time to come.

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.
