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:

I was beginning to believe that I would never understand Spanish, but you have given me hope. What a great idea. I can do my two favourite pastimes at once...

Thank you

I'm french and I study English and of course Spanish and I wanted to thank you for your idea of making those news podcasts. I was looking for a way to learn Spanish and I begun to listen to Spanish radio but how fast they talk! I understood 5 words of the 25 they were saying yet I understand my Spanish teachers. Moreover I thank you for the news which are very clear and which sum up perfectly what happens around the world and since I'd like to become journalist, what could be better for me?
I hope I'll be able to listen to you for a long time!

…I agree with your main point that listeners forget it's a learning program. That is very true for me - I do study hard with other materials, but when I am using NSS it's not studying at all.

In addition, another thing I really like about NSS is that although it's presented slowly and is somewhat less complicated than usual texts for native speakers, it doesn't talk down to the listeners. You always write the program as if writing to a friend or another adult, not like you would write it to a child. I think many language learning tools make this big mistake, where they treat listeners like kids.

I also particularly enjoy the personal tone that you have in the dialogues. Unlike something impersonal like reading CNN en Español, it helps to feel like I'm getting to know both you and Jorge (and even the guest hosts).
