Podcast for Intermediate Students
News in Slow Spanish is a weekly podcast aimed at intermediate-level Spanish students. Native speakers report current events at a reduced but not unnatural pace, making it easier for you to understand without being overloaded by rapid-fire Spanish. You also have the option to hear the same person reciting the news at a normal speed, so that you can truly practice and improve at your own pace. Even better, both Spanish from Spain and Spanish from Latin America are available.
After the news item, two reporters chat about it to further improve your understanding and offer additional information. The complete transcript is provided with potentially difficult words highlighted – hover to see the translation.
