About Spotlight

What is Spotlight?

Spotlight is a daily 15 minute radio program.  It uses a special English method of broadcasting.  This makes Spotlight easier for many people to understand, no matter where in the world they live.

We use:

  • fewer words (a vocabulary of 1500 words)
  • slower speed (about 90 words per minute, or half the normal speaking speed)
  • shorter sentences

People use Spotlight to help with English. But Spotlight is a real radio program, not just a lesson.

What is Spotlight about?

You will hear Spotlight programs about many different subjects from around the world.  We cover many topics including arts, culture, science, technology, health concerns, relationships, human rights, and world issues.
