Coffee Break Italian

What will the course contain?

In Season 1 of Coffee Break Italian, there will be forty lessons which will help you develop a solid foundation in the language. In each lesson the team of teacher Mark, native speaker Francesca and learner Katie will guide you through a range of topics and you’ll acquire a sound understanding of Italian.

Coffee Break Italian Season 1 is aimed at complete beginners, but through the forty lessons you’ll build your confidence and you’ll soon be able to use Italian confidently with native speakers.

What will the course contain?

Coffee Break Italian is like going for a coffee with your friend who happens to speak Italian and is helping you to learn in a relaxed, enjoyable way. Then add a solid structure and carefully constructed pedagogy which ensures that you progress through the lessons and build on previously-learned materials.

Coffee Break Italian is not a simple series of “listen and repeat” audio programmes: in each lesson Mark and Francesca explain how the language works, helping learner Katie – and you as the listener – to manipulate the language and use it in practical situations.

    Looking forward to starting CBI.
    Will forty lessons take forty weeks from 26 January before you launch an intermediate series or is there a more frequent issue?

      Hi John. Yes, we’ll be publishing weekly in blocks of 10 lessons, so lessons 1-10 will be published January-March, lessons 11-20 in April-June and so on. A second season of Coffee Break Italian would not be released until Season 1 is complete in December 2015. Hope that helps.
