Welcome Mezzofanti Guild community
Take your Spanish from intermediate to fluent, listening to stories you'll love from NPR's Radio Ambulante, with Jiveworld's cutting-edge language-learning technology.
Lupa is not for beginner Spanish. Sign up to unlock the offer and check out the mobile app's two free stories to see if Lupa is right for you.
It’s great to see an app that caters to advanced Spanish learners AND the most difficult language skill (under-represented in most apps), listening comprehension. Lupa's a treasure trove of truly authentic Spanish material. This is an app that I highly recommend.

How it works
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.
Lupa goes where you go, whether you're connected or not. Download the stories for a plane ride, a camping trip, or wherever your travels take you.
Set and achieve your goals
Lupa gives you a simple way to track your efforts over time. You don't need trophies — your rewards are the authentic moments you'll experience with a true mastery of Spanish.
