Well Done!

I love the conversational style of Coffee Break Italian. It covers scenarios that you will likely encounter such as ordering drinks/food, asking for directions, and shopping. My Italian has improved a ton since listening to this podcast. Now I can order food like a pro! Prior to Coffee Break I was trying to learn by reading a beginner Italian book which had too much grammar, and Duolingo which I found to be very slow. I’m on episode 27, I had to listen each lesson multiple times. I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the podcast.

Meraviglioso!

A wonderful way to learn Italian. Fun and engaging. I heartily recommend it. Works particularly well with long walks, one returns feeling good and immersed in Italian.

Season 1

I’m about halfway through season 1. I ended up purchasing the bonus content after about 10 episodes, both instructors and the studentessa are fantastic. The content is fun and they build on what you’ve already learned, so you can start to put together questions and phrases logically. The pace and subject matter are practical, and again, they run through it in a fun way. I’ll stress that just like learning any other language, you really have to speak along with them, you can’t just listen to all the episodes. You may understand a fair bit, but to be able to really speak, you have to speak along with the instructors. All said, I’ve tried Duolingo as well, which is very different in its format, but Coffee Break works very well for me, I listen to it while I do my stupid cardio at the gym, on my commute, and when I walk my dog. The immersion and constantly listening helps a lot as well. Give it a shot, but really engage yourself.
