Although facing no shortage of competition, Coffee Break Spanish (iTunes - Feed - Web Site) has remained the most popular foreign language lesson podcast, bar none. The popularity rankings on iTunes have continually attested to that.
From this position of strength, the producers of Coffee Break Spanish have smartly moved into new European territories, rolling out earlier this year MyDailyPhrase Italian (iTunes - Feed - Web Site) and MyDailyPhrase German (iTunes - Feed - Web Site). Now they will be facing a stiffer challenge – trying to penetrate the already-crowded French language lesson market.
Coffee Break French (iTunes - Feed - Web Site) was launched on September 26, and how it fares against the competition (see our list below) depends mainly on whether the podcast delivers French lessons better than the others, and whether it can capitalize on the established "Coffee Break" brand. Stay tuned. All of this remains TBD. Let's sit back and watch how things unfold.
