How Lupa works

How Lupa works

Your students will be listening to real radio stories — produced for native speakers — with just enough help to keep them on track.

  1. Stories they'll love

    Crafted by the award-winning Radio Ambulante, Lupa brings tales of love and adventure, triumph against adversity, and, sometimes, devastating heartbreak. Your students will connect to these true stories emotionally, intellectually, and culturally.

  2. Level up

    Jiveworld is a unique self-study system of scaffolded stories in a bimodal interface with audio and an interactive transcript. The scaffolding adapts to the level of each student where they learn most effectively, just beyond their comfort zone. They come to class prepared, and ready to engage.

  3. Building blocks for fluency

    Lupa stories are divided into 2-4 minute chapters to match the student's natural concentration span. Vocabulary is organized into multi-word expressions, always in context, to increase language transfer and stickiness.

  4. Beyond the classroom

    Your students will hear authentic voices from all over Latin America, from all walks of life, telling their own stories. Their ears will adapt to a wide range of accents and natural idioms giving them the confidence to engage with the entire Spanish-speaking world.

The Lupa app is currently mobile-only. We are working on a web version for early 2021.
