Description

In our course we emphasize all aspects of language learning from listening comprehension, rapid vocabulary expansion, exposure to Spanish grammar and common idiomatic expressions used in Latin America, to pronunciation practice and interactive grammar exercises. In our program we discuss the Weekly News, grammar, and expressions, and much more in simplified Spanish at a slow pace so that you can understand almost every word and sentence.

Very helpful in understanding spoken spanish

Slow enough to understand, but still challenges you. Extremely helpful to me.

latin spanish

after only listening to the latin american part of the regular, old `news and slow spanish` , i am so glad they started this podcast ! more people speak latin spanish then castillian , so why bother ?

Great listening practice...

Once you gain some knowledge of a language in a classroom setting, I think it's important that you spend a lot of time listening to the language if you want to gain any sort of proficiency. These podcasts offer such an opportunity that you can take advantage of with very little trouble or expense. As advertised, the Spanish is slow enough to provide word separation, and even if you don't know all of the words, it's still good practice to capture the words you do know while noting the ones you don't. And if you're aware of the news, you may learn some new words in the process.

Not all of these news stories are top headlines, so some of them will be coming at you with no background at all in the story. Those are fun opportunities of a different kind. It's fun when you hear about it in your own language later on, and you realize you heard about it first in Spanish.

Aside from the news stories, which you can read about independently, the podcasters break into commentary and conversation about the news stories. That's also an interesting challenge, because there's no independent source to help you verify what you think you heard.

I have listened to many hours of radio Spanish, and I know that listening is a skill that you will improve upon if you do it often. These podcasts are more kind and gentle than a radio station. Need to practice listening? Recommended!
