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。

Science in the News(科學新聞) 這一專題材主要對新近的科學技術新聞進行綜述或摘要廣播。向聽眾介紹世界各國在自然、醫學、疾病、原子能、航天等方面的科研動態、成果、突破性進展及存在的困難。涉及當今世界人們普遍關心的重大問題,如核事故、航天飛機爆炸、自然災害、環境污染和愛滋病等等。每逢星期二播出,每次播一到五條新聞摘要。
