We’ve just completed our pilot season of News Time Spanish and we’d like your feedback! News Time Spanish is aimed at intermediate to advanced learners of Spanish – for the past ten weeks we’ve been bringing you a weekly roundup of news stories from around the world, written especially for learners.
With News Time Spanish we aimed to provide content to help increase learners’ range of vocabulary and provide practise in listening skills – a sort of stepping stone to authentic news broadcasts which are available elsewhere on the web. Our premium materials featured full transcripts, vocabulary and exercises, and a special electronically slowed-down version of the audio recording to help listeners who found the speed a bit too challenging.
We hope to return in the Autumn with more News Time Spanish, but we’d like your feedback. Have you enjoyed our weekly episodes? Is there anything you’d like more of? Or anything you’d like to change? We ultimately want News Time to be a manageable production which we can publish regularly and we hope that you’ve enjoyed it and found it useful. Please post your comments below.
We also want to make it clear that News Time Spanish is just one of a range of new materials for intermediate to advanced Spanish learners which we’re working on at the moment. Stay tuned to find out more about our future plans including some exciting video content for Spanish learners.
