  1. Thanks for the free Italian lesson. It’s relaxing to be able to learn at a slow, but interesting pace. Italian is seems so easy for English speakers to pronounce, but because of the often irregular stress on word syllables, it’s easy to get it wrong. I like that you and Francesca speak each word clearly and distinctly. Bravo.

    • Ci dispiace! Sorry we didn’t mention gallese in the main episode. This is covered in the bonus episode for lesson 3, along with a number of other nationalities. It’s difficult to cover every possibility for all our listeners.

      • Non c’è problema! I just found it strange for you to cover England, Scotland and Ireland and not Wales, it stood out more with the inclusion of the others. I am using these podcasts to revise as I am working towards A2 and back to basics is always good. I have learnt quite a few bits from the casts! I look forward to continuing to listen to these on my journey to advanced levels. I hope you continue with multiple seasons as I, for one, would buy them all 🙂 grazie tanto!

  2. Buongiorno,
    I cannot seem to find more detailed information on how much additional content premium members receive. I would love to help support your program by purchasing a premium but I would like to know how much more vocabulary comes with the premium membership.
    Also, are there plans to add an Italian level 2?

    • Hi Luke. Apologies for the slow reply: we’ve had problems with our comments system. You can find out more about the premium materials here. The bonus materials include lesson notes, video versions of the lessons and our bonus audio which includes translation challenges, helping you put into practice what you’ve learned in the main lesson. Hope that helps!

  3. Un puo tarde, ma sto imparando con Coffe Break from Argentina… Nice to practice English and in the meantime learn Italian!!
