We've added new audios to our Learning Spanish website. We now have audios from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Spain and Venezuela. Our site is and will always be free. It's a labor of love by me, the programmer from Holland, and a whole bunch of native Spanish speakers.

I hope you like them. Feedback is always appreciated!

Wow, cool website!
This text audio exercise is nice.

I am curious:

  • How long do you have to learn Spanish (from scratch) to use texts with audio on the "easy" setting?
  • What level do you need in Spanish?
  • How many Duo trees would I need to complete? 2-3 (incl. reverse trees) completely?

The Columbian audio brought up a (longer) text with MULTIPLE blanks ;)

I e.g learned 1000 Spanish words end of 2017 on my Lingvist challenge (one word = one fill in the blank), and maybe I will continue or not (to ~3000)...I am not sure yet.

The DuoLingo level 9 was just a "test out" of my Portuguese skills on the Android app. I have not learned Spanish on Duo.


I think I am searching for something like this for Portuguese BR :-)
Will test my PT BR Podcast subscription next weeks....

I don't think there's an easy answer to your questions Thomas, because it really depends on the person, their talent for languages and most likely also the other languages they speak. There are some texts that are pretty simple, like "Comprando zapatos" under Mexican, that should be perfect for beginners.

i like it! but one technical point: the audio is very quiet, at least on my ipad i can hardly hear most recordings even with the volume at max.

Interesting! I'm going to look into that and see if there is anything I would be able to do to improve that.


I normalized the audio on all the files and hope that this will help. Let me know if volume is still a problem.

Too bad you can't use the Castilian accent for all of them. Honestly don't care to listen to the other accents.

I know that everybody has their preferences and I try to cater to both the Spanish from Spain and the Spanish from Latin America. That's why all the verb pages have the "vosotros" as optional for instance. I'll try to add more audios with the Castilian accent. :)
