Códigos urbanos: Unraveling Latin American cities
Visiting a city isn't the same as living in it. Beneath the picture postcard veneer is a vorágine del caos (maelstrom of chaos) sometimes contained, sometimes not. As usual, we lift the cover and reveal the complex reality — slices of life — in four Latin American cities: Lima, San José de Costa Rica, Ciudad de México, and San Salvador.
How it works
You'll be listening to real radio stories – produced for native speakers – with just enough help to keep you on track.
Native speakers, speaking natively
You need real Spanish — not ”slow” Spanish — to develop a fluent ear. Lupa features extraordinary people from all over Latin America telling their story, in their own voice.
Award-winning true stories
Radio Ambulante’s journalism has won numerous accolades, including the prestigious Gabriel García Márquez Prize.
Jiveworld's innovations let you tackle challenging material while your ears, not your eyes, do the heavy lifting.
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.

Set and achieve your goals
