Welcome to Newsdle, the most comprehensive news-based graded reader for the study of Spanish and French. We’d like to take the opportunity today to introduce you to our platform and highlight some of the great features that will help you on your journey to foreign language fluency! This is our guide for accessing Newsdle to learn Spanish, for our French guide see here.
Why study with news?
Our daily, news-based content to learn Spanish is a game-changer! Whatever you’re in to and whatever your level, you’ll find content that suits your learning style and interests. We publish three lessons daily across our levels (beginner to post-advanced), so there’s always plenty of content to keep your language content chest topped up. Popular categories include sport, culture, language, society, and pop culture!
Spanish (Spain) and Spanish (Latin America)
We write content for both Spanish (Spain) and Spanish (Latin America). There are subtle differences in vocabulary and the dual content will give you exposure to multiple accents through our graded, spoken audio when studying - more on that later!

Live Dictionary, Review and Flashcards
Vocab is key when learning Spanish and we’ve got you covered! First, click on any word to retrieve its definition within the in-built live dictionary. You can save words and hear them spoken aloud.

There’s a handy icon to let you know how well you’ve performed on each word.
Keywords, Grammar and Idioms
Each lesson details keywords, grammatical explanations, and idioms (where present in the lesson). Just like in a textbook, the listings can provide a handy look-up tool as you study!
You can hear each lesson spoken by our amazing content team! Our team are based across Spain and Latin America, so you’ll get used to a variety of accents when studying that will be helpful as you continue your Spanish-learning journey. The speed of the audio is in-line with the targeted level to promote understanding.
