Jiveworld is a language study system for improving your real-world listening skills. It is aimed at intermediate and advanced learners.

How it works

You'll be listening to real radio stories – produced for native speakers – with just enough help to keep you on track.

  1. Native speakers, speaking natively

    You need real Spanish — not ”slow” Spanish — to develop a fluent ear. Our stories feature (extra)ordinary people from all over Latin America telling their story, in their own voice.

  2. Award-winning true stories

    Radio Ambulante has won numerous accolades including the prestigious Gabriel García Márquez Prize for Innovation in Journalism.

  3. Accelerated learning

    Jiveworld's innovations let you tackle challenging material while your ears, not your eyes, do the heavy lifting.

  4. Living language

    Yes, you'll learn a ton of new vocab. But you'll also rediscover familiar words and phrases rooted in different contexts which can completely change their meaning.

  5. Travel-friendly

    Take it to the jungle, take it to the North Pole… Lupa goes where you go, whether you're connected or not.

  6. Set and achieve your goals

    Lupa gives you a simple way to track your effort over time. You don't need trophies — your rewards are the authentic moments you'll experience with a true mastery of Spanish.
