I have been using DuoLingo Italian for about 4 months and although it has been quite good I find the Coffee Break Italian is a huge bonus. It helps to put things in order so that you can actually put words into a sentence and have small conversations. It is a joy to listen to and I am learning a...Read full review »

I am not new to Italian, but I’m mostly self-taught. This podcast has been great for learning and filling in gaps that I’ve missed. I really appreciate the explanation and overall practice. Highly recommended!!

This Podcast is very fun. My favorite is the Travel Diaries. I bought the $35 Season 6 on their site and really enjoyed having the printed manuscript of the spoken podcast. I’ve learned so much with them. It really helped with my studies at the university.

I’m thrilled a friend recommended this wonderful podcast to me! I moved to Italy recently and I’m finding this show to be an invaluable resource! I will certainly be promoting this show on my own podcast, “I’m Moving to Italy!” 🇮🇹 Ciao Ciao Ciao! - Nathan Heinrich

I am currently learning Italian at university as my second foreign language. As someone who has learnt a language both by being immersed in a country and in a formal classroom setting I can confirm that this podcast is gold dust! If you want to learn a language or have something to compliment...Read full review »

6 years of French and German at school, 2 years of night school Italian and I can’t so much as count to 10. But this.....I’m making progress. Brilliant.

I finished the duolingo Italian course and was looking for a new way to supplement my Italian studies - Coffee Break Italian is helpful even as a review! Each episode I either learn something new or get valuable practice speaking questions out loud and forming new sentences. So glad I found this...Read full review »

Love love love CBI, I love how they build up the level of difficulty as they move on with the episodes and also adored the fact that they have 1-An italian teacher 2-A native speaker 3-A person that’s learning with you along the way. Grazie di tutto!!

This podcast is awesome! The lessons are small enough that you don’t feel overwhelmed but have enough content that you feel like you can actually say something or ask something in Italian! Loving it all so far!
Amber.2012 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/21
As a teacher of French and Spanish who is now learning Italian, I think this is an excellent podcast. Mark and Francesca are truly wonderful teachers who explain, give plenty of examples and then feedback to Isla. It’s a very pleasant and painless way to learn a language. It is also very...Read full review »

The soap opera is what brought me here. I hope there is a part 2!! Oh I had to adjust my review because now I love the Magazine! One request- when reviewing the “article” leave un po secondo for us to repeat after the italian before revealing the English. It’s great practice but a lot of...Read full review »

I really enjoy this format of learning. Easy and captivating! Short enough to keep your attention and incorporating natural conversations amongst Italians, is a great way to practice both listening and speaking skills. Thank you for this podcast!!
StyledbyAngela via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/29/20
I can’t recommend this podcast enough. I’ve done Babbel, online group classes, and an online tutor. Marc and Francesca are master teachers. They have organized the lessons in such a thoughtful and clear manner. Plus, they mix it up to keep the episodes fun and engaging. Marc has a fabulous...Read full review »

Please ask Italians what drives them, what motivates them in their life? Thank you, Gina

I have just began listening to these podcasts routinely as well as doing my Babbel app grammar lessons. I have found listening and speaking as if I were in conversation very helpful!! The fact that there are three perspectives as well as myself the listener is a great concept. To not just learn...Read full review »

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!

These guys are great! They go on such a great gradient so you’re not spinning out with too hard of a start. They start easy and gradually increase it to more and more. It’s very easy and entertaining to listen to. I’ve been listening for 6 months now and have learned so much!! Thank you!!
Jesssssssssskkka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/20

Just found this podcast and I’m really pleased with it. I’m also staying in Glasgow, Scotland and the podcast hosts and their Scottish twang is funny and also so familiar! Can’t wait to hear all seasons!

I've finished Italian-from-English tree on Duolingo a while ago, I was looking for what else to do and I found this podcast. So far I've listened to almost all 90 episodes available here and it's been a great journey to learn Italian with this podcast. ♥️Read full review »

I have been working on Duolingo and Babbel for almost a year. I started listening from the beginning even though I already had a lot of the vocabulary under my belt, but what has been really helpful are the explanations of WHY certain constructions exist. Also, unlike Duo or Babbel, you get to...Read full review »

Combine these excellent lessons with some other efforts on the side and you’d be speaking Italian soon. Very nice work guys!
Jaappus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/20
If you’re interested in learning Italian, especially the rhythm and flow of it, this is a great place to park. The set up - teacher, native Italian speaker, and learner with time for listeners to practice - really works well. I supplement with Duo Lingo and its a great combo.
