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.
