Announcing the Duolingo Spanish Podcast!
Duolingo is launching a bilingual podcast for Spanish learners today! In creating this, we wanted to combine great storytelling with language learning: each episode of the podcast features compelling, true stories that are told in easy-to-understand Spanish with English narration throughout. Although the vocabulary used is linked to the CEFR, these are not your standard language lessons, but rather captivating stories designed to help learners improve their listening comprehension throughout their daily lives.
There are currently nearly 110 million English speakers learning Spanish on Duolingo, and we believe this weekly podcast will push intermediate and advanced learners in particular to the next level. So, whether you are nearing the end of your Spanish tree or just looking for great stories to listen to on your commute, download the Duolingo Spanish Podcast from your favorite podcast provider!

Do you have already plans what will be the 2nd or 3rd target language?
Maybe Portuguese like Duo Labs stories?
Well, we know you have some Spanish and Portuguese internal resources available ;)
.........and yes, there are million of Spanish learners on DuoLingo according to the Incubator statistics....acknowledged.
Nice that your team has new ideas and brings them to life for first tests....
Just when I thought that Duo was becoming stale for me, you raised the bar. First, I attended a Duo event here in San Francisco, una buscada, a scavenger hunt! Muy divertido, even though I was the least fluent. Then the stories, which I have followed almost every day, added a new dimension.
But now, the podcasts! I was feeling almost weepy listening to the story of meeting one's sports idol and could follow most of the words. This is exactly the type of exercise my Spanish teacher at community college has been suggesting - listening to Spanish with Spanish subtitles.
Thanks for pulling me back to Duolingo!
