Podcast Awards nomination for Coffee Break Italian

We’re delighted to report that Coffee Break Italian has been nominated in the “Smartest podcast” category of the British Podcast Awards. These new awards have been created this year to highlight the best British-made podcasts of the year. The nominations for each category have been selected by a jury and we’re delighted that Coffee Break Italian has made it into the shortlist for the education category.

The British Podcast Awards also have a Listener’s Choice award where podcast listeners from around the world can nominate their favourite British-made podcast. All of our shows qualify for this award, so if you enjoy learning with any of our Coffee Break shows, please vote for us. Mark’s made a short video to explain the voting process:

Voting will literally take less than a minute, and we’d be very grateful to have your vote. Simply search for Coffee Break Spanish / Coffee Break French / Coffee Break Italian / Coffee Break German or Coffee Break Chinese at the British Podcast Awards site, and enter your details to vote. You can vote more than once for different podcasts, so if you listen to more than one of our shows, feel free to vote for each one! However, only one vote per podcast from your email address counts. It’s also important to say that although these awards are celebrating British podcasts, you can vote from anywhere in the world.

The Podcast Awards ceremony is taking place in London on 29th April and Mark and Francesca will be there on the night. We’ll let you know how things go! In the meantime, thanks for your support.

    I have benefitted enormously from CB French especially because I can listen to the podcast whilst walking. I enjoy the study plan which is comprehensive and clearly presented. Keep up the good work!

      Thanks for your comments, Peter. We place ads in the free lessons to help us support the development of our courses. The ads will vary depending on your country, but there should only ever be two ads before the lesson starts. There may also be an ad in the midroll / “break” in the middle of the lesson, and potentially an ad after the lesson is complete. If you’d prefer not to hear the ads at all, our premium courses never have any ads in them. You can find out more about them at http://courses.coffeebreakacademy.com.

    Coffee Break French is one of the best podcasts I have come across in my effort to learn French. It’s concise, straight to the point and very easy for the learner, in terms of pace and presentation. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in taking up French learning as a hobbi.

    I have been a fan of your podcasts eve since taking a French class in my college.Our professor told us to listen to coffee Break French as an exercise. Loved Mark’s way of speaking and the useful lessons! I listened religiously and then I discovered Coffee Break Italian! Amazing! Mark is great and Francesca delightful. I already knew a lot of italian but listening to the podcasts made me practice and learn more. Cannot express my gratitude with more words than to say: Thank you, thank you in all languages. German is next!!

    Hey Mark, Hi future Learners;
    I’ve been loving and referring or recommending the Radio Lingua language offerings ever since they began in 2006.

    I was able to pass my college level equivalency exam (CLEP) here in the US) for Spanish I and Spanish II after walking and listening/studying with the Coffee Break Spanish premium lessons. This is super easy learning; therefore, I absolutely recommend it.

    And please folks, vote for them to win these awards. All love and peace!
    Carol D. 🙂
