Can anyone recommend a hopefully free, English language Spanish newspaper or news app to read while waiting to travel? I’d like to learn more of the current news of Spain.
Thank you…

I think El País is the best newspaper in Spain. They print an English version, which does not include all of their articles, but a good many. It is certainly enough to keep you up to date.


For some reason, the Spanish version requires a subscription, but the English version does not.

Good news on today’s front page — Spain has the highest share of fully vaccinated individuals of the world’s “large countries.”

I like listening to Spain Speaks on You Tube. He reads from various Spanish newspapers and tells the news of the day. You can subscribe. I think this is the link to his page. Click on "Videos" to see the latest one.

Agree. Spain Speaks and El Pais English.

Sometimes I can get a few articles in El Pias Spanish with Google translate in Chrome. The main stories in the two languages are often different, so I find it interesting to see what's considered important to Spainish speakers versus English. FWIW, Stuart from Spain Speaks usually quote from the Spanish edition.

Thank you, I found El Pais in my App Store and have downloaded it.

RTVE (Spanish PBS/BBC) is also excellent: it is free and they have streamed programs (including news), they also have neat little 1 - 2 minute videos, brilliant for practising listening skills as well as full length TV and radio programs and podcasts. There is usually an explanatory text as well as the video. But they don't have an English language service, unfortunately.
