  • I Cesaroni (2006-2014).
  • Tutti pazzi per amore (2008-2012).

Try to understand and repeat some scenes over and over again. In this way you will improve your pronunciation. There are other TV series that have been very successful in Italy in the last few years, such as:

  • II comissario Montalbano
  • Gomorra

These series are more difficult to understand, because in the first one they use the Sicilian dialect and in the second one the Neapolitan dialect. So, we recommend that you watch them with subtitles or only if you are an advanced level student.
