美国之音(以下称VOA)的英语节目,按播音速度可分为两种:Standard English (标准英语)和 Special English(特别英语)。

Special English 又叫“慢速英语”,是VOA 专为全世界非英语国家初学英语的听众安排的一种简易、规范的英语广播节目。该节目创始于50年代末期,是VOA 的专家们研究如何与世界各地的英语学习者进行交际的产物。它正式开播于1959年10月。当时只面向欧洲和中东,但由于这个节目适合许多国家英语学习者的需要,所以它的广播对象不久就扩大到世界其他地区,并很快在全世界范围内产生了广泛的影响。现在这个节目对欧洲、非洲和拉丁美洲每晚广播一次,对加勒比地区每晚广播一次(星期天除外),对东南亚广播次数最多,每天上午两次,晚上三次。

American Mosaic(美国万花筒) American Mosaic是一个radio magazine(广播杂志)节目。该节目题材广泛、内容丰,展示着美国社会文化生活中比较轻松愉快的生活画面;听众收听该节目就如同在阅读一本图文并茂的杂志。它每次有三到五个小节目,涉及音乐、图书、技术和教育等方面的内容。我们既可以从中欣赏到著名歌唱的优秀歌曲,对美国音乐有所了解,又可以获取一些生动有趣的现代美国社会生活知识,随着播音员那亲切悦耳的声音步入美国风景如画的大好河山;同时还能听到世界各地的听众提出的有关英语语方文学等方面的问题和电台的解答。
