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。

The Making of a Nation(建國史話) 這一專題節目向聽眾介紹美利堅合眾國從十三個殖民地區域到現代工業國的孕育、誕生以及形成超級大國的歷史過程,并以歷史為線索,特定的歷史時期為單位,以重大的歷史事件為主題材來敘述各個黨派、各屆總統和政府的歷史作用與貢獻。這是每個英語學習者都應了解的基本知識。The Making of a Nation每逢星期四播出。這是個系列節目,堅持收聽,則有助于系統了解美國的歷史概況。
