Why News in Slow Spanish?
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.
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:

Una vez estaba surfeando en Internet y encontré su sitio web. Eso fue hace 4 o 5 meses. Ahora estoy enamorada de sus clases y de las personas que presentan los materiales. Les escucho como a mis amigos de verdad, porque me caen muy bien. Son muy simpáticos, graciosos :) ¡Sus clases ayudan muchísimo a la gente que quiere aprender español! ¡Muchas gracias! ¡A todos los que han inventado este proyecto y a todos los que preparan cada semana este buenísimo proyecto!

At last, a source of spoken-Spanish audio files, with transcripts I can follow along and "cursor over" hard words for an instant translation. Unlike regular Spanish news via audio or video, I can discern the content because of the pace, and use the transcripts as training wheels -- as much or as little as I need. It's the best vocabulary learning tool I've found since it throws so many new words at me, with a news-story pace of repetition, that I can decode in the context of the story, and rarely bother with a dictionary. News in Slow Spanish lets me think in Spanish a bit longer every time.

I am a 53 year old Spanish learner...a big effort to learn! Once passed the basic courses, there are no other courses I can access from where I live..(in the middle of England) thanks for a fantastic resource to help me keep going!
