Thanks for your excellent service. I appreciate the functionality of NISI very much, also the app works great and is kept quite slick and intuitive, which I always prefer regarding apps.

The voices are pleasant to hear and I like the way you choose the variety in news topics! The short discussion parts bring some other language in, more "daily speak" which I also need as a starter.

Keep up the good work - I'm really learning Italian this way!

Kind regards,
