What an excellent way to teach Italian! Whoever thought of this is a genius. I look forward every week to a new broadcast. They are interesting and certainly do fulfill the goal of teaching Italian. My comprehension and vocabulary have increased in leaps and bounds. And it’s so much fun!
But the programs offer me so much more than language learning. First, many of the news stories have not appeared in the newspapers or on the TV news in Washington, DC, where I live, so they are helping me to become better informed. Second, the discussions between Benedetta and Emanuele are enlightening and thought-provoking. I discuss them with my husband and son, who also enjoy them.
Thank you so much for this wonderful program.
