Considered the easiest foreign language for native English speakers to learn, Dutch is a great choice for those hoping to expand their global skills. Dutch holds official status in countries from the Caribbean to Europe and is closely related to both German and Afrikaans, making learning more than one language a breeze! With an estimated half a million Dutch speakers living in the U.S. and Australia, learning Dutch is an asset whether you plan on traveling to the Netherlands or trying out your language skills at a local level.

Where to Practise Foreign Languages in Melbourne: Taking a language course with a native-speaking instructor will help you improve your conversational skills in a very short time, as you will receive feedback from an experienced teacher who will take your ability and pronunciation to the next level. However, it is also important that you practise outside the classroom, so you sharpen your language skills and gain confidence. Luckily for learners in Melbourne, the city offers plenty of opportunities for you to put your new language into play. For example, you can join the Melbourne Language Exchange Meetup, a group that organises weekly free and fun language exchange events for you to meet people from all over the world and practise languages like Spanish, Italian, Urdu, Japanese, Mandarin and English, among many others. They welcome learners of all ages and levels of proficiency, so you can join them even if you have just started taking a course with us at Language Trainers. But if you are already proficient, you can join groups like Fluent Fast! Free Language Conversation and Exchange, which brings together advanced speakers for advanced-level foreign language conversations.

Where to Study Foreign Languages in Melbourne: Melbourne is also a city with many options for you to study a foreign language of your choosing. For example, you can enrol in one of the dozens of language schools available. Meanwhile, if you are considering a higher education degree in a foreign language, you can do so in institutions such as the University of Melbourne and Monash University. These establishments have programmes in more than 12 different languages, including Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Arabic and French. You will learn to master both oral and written skills to communicate effectively in another language and appreciate its cultural contexts. And those with an interest in demonstrating their language level with an internationally recognised certificate (like DALF for French or Goethe-Zertifikat for German) can find many institutions that host these exams, like the Alliance Francaise on Grey Street. These exams can be quite demanding, depending on the minimum score you require, so don’t hesitate to contact us and our native-speaking tutors will adapt our Exam Preparation course to your requirements.

Language Jobs in Melbourne: By learning a foreign language in a multilingual, multicultural city like Melbourne, more employment opportunities will open up to you. With the advance of globalisation, more and more local companies are looking to expand into overseas markets, such as Asia and Europe. So, learning a second or even third language will prove to be an asset when applying for a new job at companies like Viva Energy, Exxon Mobil and Alibaba, who want employees who can communicate with clients and partners abroad. And if you are looking to connect with foreign entrepreneurs or would like to set up your own business overseas, you can find many Chambers of Commerce in the city, like the German, Chinese and Spanish ones, that can help you in your endeavours. These institutions usually organise events, talks and conferences where you can network and establish long-lasting business relations using the foreign language skills you acquire in your lessons with us!

Language Culture in Melbourne: Sign up for a language course and you will not only learn about sentence structure, vocabulary and pronunciation but also about the culture of the people who speak the language. Then, experience these cultures first-hand by participating in events around Melbourne. For example,  those interested in learning an Asian language can take part in the Chinese New Year celebrations, which usually take place in January or February, as determined by the lunar calendar. You and your family can look forward to sixteen days of lion and dragon dances, visual art and light installations, cultural performances, craft workshops, food markets, parades and fireworks. Meanwhile, if you are studying Greek instead, you should not miss the Lonsdale Street Festival, which celebrates Melbourne as home to the world's largest Greek population outside of Greece. Held in February along the iconic Greek Precinct, Melbourne's biggest Greek street party serves up a weekend of culture, food and entertainment. Enjoy traditional performances, live international and local entertainment, food stalls and the Loukoumania eating competition. No matter the language you are learning, there is always something for everyone in Melbourne. Check out Visit Melbourne’s website to get a full list of all the events organised all year long in the city!

Overall, studying languages in Melbourne will not only broaden your local and international employment prospects, but it will also allow you to experience different cultures on a whole new level. Language Trainers has a variety of flexible courses to fit your schedule and meet your needs. Whether you prefer learning in a small group in the morning, or a one-on-one Skype session in the middle of the afternoon, we can make it happen. Reach out to us and we will arrange for one of our native-speaking tutors to come to your home or office. You may also decide to study in a public space around the city, such as the State Library Victoria on Swanston St, 905 Cafe on New Haven Avenue or Sun Shoppe Cafe on the same street.

Are you living on the outskirts of Melbourne but would still like to study with us? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Our amazing instructors are ready to get started in Geelong, St. Kilda, Seaholme and Spotswood, among countless other locations. Just let us know where you are, and we will be there!

Contact us today and get to know more about our language packages. And, if you have studied languages before, please take one of our language level tests, so we can then design a course that truly suits your current level!
