Our subscribers say:

Recently I have been studying Italian. Every fall I go to Italy and France. My wife studies the French language and I have just started to learn Italian online.

Part of my study has included listening to Italian radio stations with local news, music, and sports to train my ears to hear the Italian language. I am very excited to start using your “makes since” language site.

Thank you,
