Top 10 podcasts to help you learn a language

Offered in French, Italian and Spanish the weekly News in Slow episodes can prove useful for learners of all levels. Not only is the delivery perfectly timed (it's slow, but not too slow) but being current news, chances are you'll at least have an idea of what they're talking about. Listening to news in a foreign language is great for increasing your vocabulary on current topics, which comes in handy if you'll be chatting to some natives soon.

We are happy that you are considering News In Slow Italian subscription. We sincerely hope that we can help you advance your Italian comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, idiomatic expressions, and pronunciation quickly. We'll be thrilled to have you among our subscribers!
