Great for Intermediate and Advanced Students

I listen to News in Slow Spanish every week and find it an excellent support for learning Spanish. It is entertaining, topical and reviews grammar in a helpful way. In addition, the idiomatic expressions are fun and the stories about Latin America are great. Listening has really helped my ear for the language. I have been told that you learn best when you understand about 80% of what you hear. It is difficult for an advanced student to find resources where they have this opportunity. Usually it is either a native resource and is very fast and full of idiomatic expressions or it is a beginner resource and tedious to listen to. News in Slow Spanish is perfect for taking along on in the car or on a walk or run. I use the website less often, but it is a good resource as a study guide. Very inexpensive and definitely worth it.

Great learning tool

The News Time Spanish season pass provides access to lesson guides, transcripts, vocabulary, exercises and a special digitally slowed down version of the audio file to give you a little extra support in understanding the stories featured each week. The current season pass provides access to ten shows, starting with our first show on 17 May 2010. We’ve added some samples of the premium materials to the feed. You can download the lesson guide for the 17th May episode here. Note that the season pass also provides an answer key for the exercises. You can listen to the slow version of the episode using the Flash player below, or by downloading it here. Remember that this slow version has been digitally slowed down and is not intended as the ‘main listening experience’: we would suggest you listen to the normal speed version, then have a listen to the slow version if you find the normal speed too fast, before returning to the normal speed version for a third listen.
