English lessons in Melbourne
Melbourne is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, with ethnic communities coming from over 180 different countries and speaking 233 different languages, according to a 2014 study by Fairfax Media. As Melbourne continues to grow as a new home or tourist destination, many of its inhabitants—whether they be from China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Italy, Greece, Ethiopia, Lebanon, etc.—all communicate together in a common language: English. This is the language of business, education, cultural activities and social life in general. So, if you are moving to Melbourne and would like to feel like a local in no time, sign up for an English course with us at Language Trainers! Contact us and we will design a programme suitable for your skills and requirements.
Why Study English in Melbourne
For Culture: In Melbourne, you will discover a city buzzing with dynamic and cutting-edge arts and culture. There are frequent festivals and street parties, with Victoria's Multicultural Festival being the highlight of these, held at the end of March each year. Victoria Markets, the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere, is home to thousands of products of Australian origin, perfect for those who would like to cook authentic Australian dishes! At Federation Square, where art meets architecture, you can watch inspiring audio-visual shows at ACMI, see the Aboriginal art collection at the Ian Potter Centre NGV, or catch a recital at The Edge Theatre. Inside and out, you will discover the innovation and skill of local artists and designers at art galleries and theatres across the city. Almost all of these exhibitions, tours and music concerts are delivered in English, so make sure you start studying as soon as possible to make the most out of these experiences! Taking English classes in Melbourne means you will be able to take part in any of the city’s cultural activities while integrating into this English-speaking society.
For Studies: Melbourne welcomes anyone who would like to study in the city warmly. There are 175,000 international students studying in Melbourne on student visas at any one time, according to 2017 data from Study Melbourne. If you are interested in pursuing higher education, you can choose from an array of reputable institutions, like the University of Melbourne, Monash University or RMIT University. The only thing you need to consider is that you will have to pass an internationally accredited exam as proof of your English proficiency; your lectures, tutorials, exams, class discussions and other academic activities will be in English, after all. Most institutions accept passing grades in exams like TOEFL, IELTS and CAE, which are challenging, so make sure you start preparing in advance with our Exam Preparation course!
For Work: As Victoria’s capital city, Melbourne is the business, administrative, cultural and recreational hub of the state. The City of Melbourne’s economy is a major contributor to the wider Victorian and Australian economies, so there are hundreds of successful companies based in the city. Some of them are BHP Group, ANZ and Telstra Corporations. All these businesses require their employees to have a good command of the English language, so take a language course to boost your employability and get a better job in Melbourne!
