The app gives you access to all episodes aired in our weekly program News in Slow Spanish. You can listen to the episodes online and you can also download audio files and flashcards to your mobile device so you could have access to them offline. PDF viewer is needed to view PDF downloads.
In our program we discuss the Weekly News, Spanish grammar, and Spanish expressions, and much more in simplified Spanish at a slow pace so that you can understand almost every word and sentence. We emphasize all aspects of language learning from listening comprehension, rapid vocabulary expansion, exposure to Spanish grammar and common idiomatic expressions, to pronunciation practice and interactive grammar exercises. With this tool you do not actually need to have an extensive vocabulary to start listening and reading our material. Your vocabulary will expand rapidly and naturally and your comprehension skills will also improve dramatically.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app but ...
... it would be a lot better if when one switched from the Episode to the flash cards, the flash card list didn’t revert to the very beginning, making it necessary to scroll through the list to find the correct episode in order to follow along while the episode is playing. Should be able to find place in flash card list, start the audio and return to flash cards at that same place.
Simplest solution would be to allow pause & restart of audio when in flash cards.
Start with web site, use app after you subscribe
The app is for people who already subscribe to the content through the web site. There is no way to subscribe or learn about the extremely confusing and expensive options through the app. Though the app has both Intermediate and Advanced sections, there is no subscription plan that allows you to enjoy both. In addition, the Advanced content is for Spain in spite of the app's title. Good app for diehard existing subscribers on the run.
Look, they’re clearly a start-up (young company) which might explain other reviews. But this is incredible. At an intermediate-advanced level, you see how phrases are translated and understand why. With time, you can figure out how things are said/phrased differently and speak with a sophisticated level. Thank you News in Slow Spanish! I think this will blow up.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
