German lessons in Melbourne
Why learn German in Melbourne? – While you may be 15,000 kilometres away from Germany, the country’s economic influence is not nearly as far away. Germany is the biggest economy in the European Union (EU), and home to many international businesses, such as Schaeffler, Siemens, and HDI. And because Melbourne is the largest Australian port, logistics companies such as Henning Harders and DB Schenker value the city’s role as a gateway between the German and Australian markets.
By learning German in Melbourne, more employment opportunities will be open to you. If you want more information about the relationships between both the Australian and German governments and their businesses, stop by the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Chinatown. The organization was founded in 1977 to promote trade and development opportunities between the two countries.
And a decision to take up German will help you with more European businesses than just German companies. It’s the most common native language in European countries, so familiarity with the language can help you not just in Germany, but also in Austria, Belgium, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, and Luxembourg. Whether you accept a job opportunity with a German-speaking country or just visit for a few weeks, speaking or reading nur ein bisschen Deutsch (just a little German) will help!
Taking German classes in Melbourne will prepare you not only for a European vacation, but also benefit you in case you run into one of the 3,000 Germans who have migrated from Germany to Victoria since 2011. And while many of them are working professionals, the average age of Melbourne’s German community is 61, according to Victorian Multicultural Commission Census data from 2016. As a result, retirement homes in the Melbourne area are looking for German-speaking employees.
But if you’re not looking for a job, there are also various opportunities to experience German culture in Melbourne to practice speaking, listening, and reading. You can connect with Melbourne’s German community through the Australian-German Welfare Society. The organization hosts a range of activities, including playgroups, bus tours, and a monthly “Film Afternoon with Coffee & Cake” (you will learn quickly that Germans love their coffee and cake). You can also immerse yourself in the German language and culture at the German Film Festival, which runs from the end of May through the beginning of June. After the festival’s 15th anniversary, it collaborated with the Goethe Institute to introduce the Kino for Kids program, which featured films specifically curated for a younger audience.
Overall, studying German in Melbourne will not only broaden your local and international employment prospects, but speaking German will also open new cultural opportunities around Melbourne. Language Trainers has a variety of 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.
