Highly enjoyable

My life is so busy that sitting down and learning a language can sometimes be difficult this is perfect to listen to on the go .

Coffee break Italian

So glad I found this , I have been trying to learn Italian for a couple of years and failed miserably ! My husband is Italian and we have a house in Tuscany. So when I found this it really captured my interest, I spend at least an hour in the morning walking the dog listening to the podcast and I never tire of repeating episodes to try and make it sink in ! I never was very good at languages !
Thank you to mark Francesca and katie

Really enjoyable

Have just discovered these podcasts and love listening them. I’m learning Italian in an adult education class and they are a great thing to listen to between lessons. Thank you!
