What is Spotlight?

For 20 years Spotlight has been helping people practice their English. Begun as a radio program, the Spotlight project has expanded to include YouTube, Facebook, Word of The Day, podcasts, and other resources to help people learn English. There are even English clubs that meet around the world and online.

However, the primary part of Spotlight English remains the audio programs. This is how you probably found out about Spotlight! Whether on YouTube, our website, or a podcast platform, these 15-minute programs use fewer words, a slower speed, and shorter sentences, all to help the English language student understand and succeed.  

Who makes Spotlight?

Spotlight is a group of writers, editors, producers, and broadcasters. We try to include native English speakers from the United States, the United Kingdom, and when possible, places like Australia or New Zeeland.
