Learning Italian #1

by Lisa


Welcome to the first Episode of learning Italian together! Based on Episode 1 of Coffee Break Italian by Radio Lingua you will find here the words learnt in this Podcast, as well as the Audio File itself. This lesson is 21 minutes long, including enough time for you to repeat the words and sentences. I hope you enjoy this first lesson and will check back next week, to learn more Italian!
