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
Awesome for Learning
Do you hate boring stiff textbooks with stilted dialogue? This way better. You get actual news and current events while learning. They really hit the highlights of the weekly news so it’s easy to stay interested and you get a useful frame of reference to orient your learning. Surely, you have heard at least a bit about the news headlines of the week in your mother tongue? It helps. Great service
Great service, good webpage, poor app.
I am a big fan of the podcasts. However the app is difficult to navigate, slow to download, and very user unfriendly. I end up just going to the webpage on my phone and using the services there.
I am a paid subscriber but the free content does give you a good taste of why this podcast really can boost your learning - reading along with a slow(er) speaking newscast really helps you pick out the words, and it is more interesting than watching a kids show or something similar.
Start on web site, not app
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. Good app for diehard existing subscribers on the run.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
