Three Apps That Bring Latin America to You

Listening to the news en español is also a great way to increase your comprehension of Spanish. And it's so easy these days thanks to news apps.

One of my Spanish students told me that she likes to listen to international news using an app from a news station in Spain.

If you prefer to listen to Spanish speakers from all over the world, I suggest Radio CNN, BBC Mundo, and/or Voz de America.

Right now, as I write this, I am listening to an interesting story on Radio CNN about flamenco students from Spain, Peru, and other Spanish-speaking countries.

Here are the links to download these apps:

1. Radio CNN

2. BBC Mundo

3. Voz de America

Join my private Facebook group Conversando en español to practice with fellow Spanish learners and native Spanish speakers.
