English lessons in Sydney
Sydney is one of the most multicultural cities in the world: more than 65% of the population are migrants who speak 240 different languages between them. However, since 95% of them communicate in English according to the 2011 Census, English is used as the lingua franca in Sydney and is the language of business, studies and everyday life. So, learning English will allow you to connect with the city’s community, broaden your professional horizons, pursue higher education and appreciate the vibrant Australian culture. Contact us at Language Trainers and we will start designing an English course for you or your family right away!
Why Study English in Sydney
For Work and Studies: If you want to pursue higher education in Sydney, you have many universities to choose from, such as the University of Sydney or Macquarie University, and tertiary institutions such as the William Angliss Institute. All of them ask international students to show proof of English proficiency. Their minimum requirements include IELTS 6.5 or an equivalent exam and certain courses have special English requirements, even higher than the ordinary ones. Language Trainers can help you with these exams! Just send us a message and we will start preparing a course tailored to your needs. Sydney also has a lot of opportunities for those who are job seeking. There are many international companies that value employees with a good command of the language, such as Coca-Cola Amatil on Mount St (one of the largest bottlers in the Asia-Pacific region) or Ingogo, a company that specialises in online taxi bookings and payments.
For Culture: If you are not actively looking for a job, you can enjoy cultural events in Sydney. For example, you can attend the Summer Festival in January, an event that lasts for 3 weeks. You can enjoy theatre plays, musicals, concerts and live performances. On January 26 every year you can also join Australia Day’s celebration at Darling Harbour with fireworks and live music. In 2018, The Wiggles performed a morning and afternoon concert that entertained thousands of people! The celebration in Sydney is definitely the biggest one across the country. All of these performances are in English, so starting a course with us in advance will definitely enhance your experience. Having a good command of the language will also allow you to take a historical guided tour around Sydney. These tours are great ways to get to know the city guided by passionate locals who want to share their knowledge with you. Most of the tours are offered in English, so if you want to get a deep understanding of the sights around Sydney and the history behind them, book some lessons with us at Language Trainers!
For Social: If you want to practise what you learn with Language Trainers and meet new people, you can join one of the many MeetUp groups available in Sydney. By far, the most popular one is Let’s Talk in English, with 21,000+ members from all over the world. They get together every Saturday at a bar or café to chat in English. You can also join the English Language Inbox socials MeetUp Group. It has more than 1100 active members who meet in a friendly and comfortable environment to practise and gain confidence to speak English. You can also use your English pronunciation at sports events in Sydney. The most popular spectator sports are rugby and cricket, so you can go to some of their matches and find other sports fans to talk to about Sydney Sixers or Sydney Thunder if you love cricket or Sidney Roosters if you prefer rugby!
