English in Adelaide

With its vibrant culture built on world-famous festivals, the cosmopolitan city of Adelaide is elegant and with a rich multicultural past. While Adelaide’s first settlers came mainly from the UK and Germany, the city now receives immigration from all over the world, meaning you can hear a great variety of languages wherever you go. And while Adelaide has no official language, English has been the de facto of the city since its foundation, right up until today, where it is the language of business, education, culture and social events.  Start learning the language today with us to become an active part of society and communicate fluently in a short time!

Why Study English in Adelaide

For Work and Studies: Knowing English is essential if you are looking for new job opportunities in this vibrant city. Adelaide is home to some of the most successful Australian companies, like Deloitte Australia (a global management consultancy firm with more than 6,000 employees) and Lendlease (a construction company that supports projects globally), among hundreds of others. These businesses require their employees to know English to an advanced level, so sign up for a course with Language Trainers and stand out when applying for vacant positions in these companies. Meanwhile, if you are not looking for a new job but would like to study instead, there are plenty of opportunities to pursue higher education in different fields, such as bioscience, health, agriculture and communications technology, all of which are taught in English. If you would like to enrol in one of their programmes but English is not your first language, international students are required to provide proof of their English proficiency by achieving a specified minimum score on an official exam, like the IELTS or CPE. Get ready well in advance with our Exam Preparation course and you’ll be sure to succeed!

For Culture: Knowing English will also allow you to explore the different cultural events organised around the city all year long, including major festivals like WOMAdelaide. This is an annual four-day festival of music, arts and dance, first held in 1992 in Botanic Park. And if you love music and arts, you should not miss the Adelaide Fringe celebration that takes place every February. It features more than 7,000 artists from around Australia and the world and over 1,300 events are staged in a huge variety of performing and visual art forms. And if you want to get to know Adelaide a little bit better, you can take a city tour that will take you to Victoria Square, Cosmopolitan Gouger Street, the Terraces, and more! Most of these tours are delivered only in English, so enhance your cultural appreciation by starting an English course in Adelaide with us first.

For Social: And if you have recently moved to Adelaide and would like to feel comfortable in your new city, it is essential to socialise. A great option is to join meet-up groups where you can practise your English while getting to know other language learners. For example, you can take part in the events organised by the Adelaide English as a Second Language Group, which aims to encourage ESL people to practise their English in a friendly atmosphere, to discover others' languages and cultures and to make new friends. Another option is the Adelaide English Lessons Meetup Group Advanced English Lessons for migrants, students and professionals to improve their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Take advantage of these opportunities to polish the English you learn with us at Language Trainers!


Where to Learn English in and around Adelaide

With English being the most commonly spoken language in Adelaide, those moving to the city need to learn the language to integrate. This is especially important if you would like to make the most of job opportunities and be able to socialise with others. So, get in touch with us at Language Trainers and we will send one of our native-speaking teachers to your home or office. Alternatively, you can study in a public space, like the State Library of South Australia on North Terrace & Kintore Avenue, Café Troppo on Whitmore Square or UR Caffé on Melbourne St.

And those who are not living in downtown Adelaide should still contact us to book English lessons. Our tutors can start teaching you (and your family, in case they also need to learn English) today in Hahndorf, Morphett Vale, Gawler and Virginia.

What are you waiting for? Let’s go! And if you have some knowledge of the language, please take our online Level Test so we can assess your precise starting level and then discuss your options for studying English in Adelaide.
