Salve a tutti! It’s time to put into practice what you’ve learned so far in Coffee Break Italian – and you can win a fantastic prize by doing so! What we’d like you to do is leave us a voicemail in Italian.

Please note that this competition runs from April 10th – 24th 2015.

UPDATE, 25 April 2015

Please note that the competition is now closed. We’ll be announcing the winner on Monday 27th.

What do you have to do?

Here are some ideas. You can tell us:

  • your name (first names only please);
  • where you live (village, town or city, no addresses!);
  • where you’re from;
  • your nationality.

You may also consider telling us some of the following things:

  • a bit about your family, e.g. saying how many brothers / sisters / sons / daughters you have;
  • what the family members are called;
  • when talking about your town you could perhaps let us know what there is in your town, e.g. “there’s a swimming pool, a beach, a castle”, and so on;
  • you could also tell us about which languages you speak.

Finally, we’d love you to include:

  • what you like most about learning Italian with Coffee Break Italian.

This competition is aimed at beginners who have started learning with Coffee Break Italian, so we’d prefer you to stick to what you’ve learned on Coffee Break Italian.
