The Best

In my opinion, this is the best podcast for learning Italian. It strikes a balance of truly learning while being entertaining. So much so, that I would like to listen to episodes from seasons 1 and 2, but can’t seem to find them. How can I access the first two seasons of coffee break Italian Advanced? Thank you again for the great content.

Great podcast!

Mark and Francesca make the Advanced Italian Podcast vey fun! The grammar rules are presented in a clear and concise manner. I’m finally beginning to use these advanced skills myself. I’m so glad they are doing this because it is a little bit difficult to find podcasts at this level of italian .
