Audible signs Spanish course

Audible has secured worldwide English language audio rights to the Superpolyglotbros’ Beginners Spanish.

Released on 9th January 2020, Beginners Spanish is written and narrated by the Superpolyglotbros, identical twins and language coaches Matthew and Michael Youlden, who speak over 20 languages between them.

"Based on 30 real-life scenarios packed with essential everyday vocabulary, listeners will be taken on an audio immersive trip of a typical Spanish-speaking place complete with a host of real-world scenarios to help them learn language in context – whether it be meeting new people, exploring a new city or ordering in a restaurant with their new amigos," reads the synopsis. "Perfectly tailored for audio, and thanks to the brothers’ innovative method of gradual immersion, spaced repetition and complete guidance throughout the course, students will be forming their own sentences and making the language their own in ways they never thought they could."

Harriet Poland, commissioning editor at Audible UK said: “As someone who’s struggled to learn Spanish since school, I thought it might be impossible, but Michael and Matthew have created something that’s crystal clear, engaging and totally unique. This is a completely new way to learn languages, immersing listeners in real world situations and building up a conversation portfolio that actually sticks. Beginner’s Spanish demonstrates what’s possible when you create something with only listeners in mind, and we’re hugely excited about continuing the series.”
