CBI 2.29 | Ho molti amici molto simpatici
It's time to take a detailed look at a topic which, on the surface, can seem straightforward, but when you get into it in more detail it can get a bit more complicated. We're talking about adverbs: words which "describe" a verb, or which give more information as how quickly, effectively, badly etc., you're doing whatever it is you're doing! We'll look at the Italian equivalent of adding "-ly" to an adjective, but we'll also consider other types of adverbs, and we'll look at those tricky adverbs like molto. Are you 100% sure when to use molto and when to use molti/molte/molta? By the end of this lesson you'll be confident with all kinds of Italian adverbs!This season of Coffee Break Italian features a total of 40 episodes, published every two weeks. Lessons 21-40 will be published during 2018. Stay subscribed to the podcast to enjoy each episode. If you'd like to benefit from lesson notes, bonus audio recordings and video versions of the lessons featuring 'synchronised video flashcards' to help you understand how the words and phrases are written, you can access the premium version of Coffee Break Italian on the Coffee Break Academy.Don't forget to follow Coffee Break Italian on Facebook where we post language activities, cultural points and review materials to help you practise your Italian.

I have just found Coffee break Italian and love it! I'm currently working my way through DuoLingo and find this complements it well. The lessons are at a great pace and provide enough time to try to answer.

Definitely my favorite Italian language learning podcast. If you're reading this review & you're interested in learning Italian, I would most definitely recommend this to you—Don't hesitate, subscribe & start playing the first episode. Coffee Break Italian is a good alternative for learning a language, especially when you're constantly on the move & have little to no time to learn Italian. Just plug in a pair of earphones & get your daily dose of Italian, anywhere, anytime. Mark is an amazing teacher, absolutely patient, observant, & encouraging. I like how he always goes in depth, even for the smallest things like in the fifth episode where he reminds the listeners & Katie to bounce the "L" in the word fratello & sorella or in episode 6 where we learn about numbers and he gives the listeners an thorough explanation on how Francesca pauses & exhales on the second syllable when she says "otto" ("eight"). Francesca's also very consistent in repeating new words, and she often improvises by adding new phrases we've never learned before, which is a great addition albeit trivial. Having Katie around as a learner (regardless of whether it's scripted or not) truly makes me as a listener feel as if I'm not alone, and I'm not the only amateur in the room. It makes me feel a bit more confident & I think this is one of the many reasons I find this podcast very enjoyable. Coffee Break Italian has made an interactive learning experience, it's fun & fresh every episode. Overall, undoubtedly good content. The only downside of learning a language via podcasts is that you'll need to Google the phrases or words you've just learned in order to know how they're spelled. I think Coffee Break Italian provides lesson notes on their website, I'm not sure if it's for free because I haven't checked it out myself, it would be very helpful nonetheless. Molto bene Coffe Break Italian! Keep up the good work.
