I have been using your website for a couple of weeks and it is absolutely brilliant! I'm learning Italian at home on my own and this is the perfect way for me to practice my listening skills. It's great to have short sections to listen to - it makes it easier to find the time. Having the transcript below and some translations is really, really helpful. And I'm looking forward to when I can select the 'hare' speed rather than the 'tortoise'.
I hope that lots of people get to know about your website and use it. I've been telling as many people as I can about it. Thank you for all your work putting it together.
