Relatos en inglés con Duolingo Podcast
Thank you for considering pitching a story for this season of Relatos en Inglés, the Duolingo podcast for Spanish speakers learning English! You will find everything you need to know in this guide.
Relatos en Inglés has been one of the top podcasts in Latin America since launching in 2020. It offers intermediate English language learners an opportunity to practice their listening comprehension through compelling, true audio stories, as told by their protagonists. The show features diverse stories about life across the English-speaking world. You can find previous episodes of the show here.
Each episode features two short, 7-10 minute personal stories centered on a single theme. The storyteller tells their story in simple, slow English, and the host chimes in periodically in Spanish to help the listener follow the story. The format is narrative, so stories should have a strong arc.
You can download our complete pitch guide below, which includes everything you need to know about pitching us and producing stories for Duolingo.
