美國之音(以下稱VOA)的英語節目,按播音速度可分為兩種:Standard English (標準英語)和 Special English(特別英語)。

Special English 又叫“慢速英語”,是VOA 專為全世界非英語國家初學英語的聽眾安排的一種簡易、規范的英語廣播節目。該節目創始于50年代末期,是VOA 的專家們研究如何與世界各地的英語學習者進行交際的產物。它正式開播于1959年10月。當時只面向歐洲和中東,但由于這個節目適合許多國家英語學習者的需要,所以它的廣播對象不久就擴大到世界其他地區,并很快在全世界范圍內產生了廣泛的影響。現在這個節目對歐洲、非洲和拉丁美洲每晚廣播一次,對加勒比地區每晚廣播一次(星期天除外),對東南亞廣播次數最多,每天上午兩次,晚上三次。

This Is America(今日美國) This Is America向聽眾介紹美國人民的生活、學習、工作和娛樂情況,是英語學習者解美國社會的一條渠道。該專題大都一個節目一個整體,每逢星期一晚播出。
