Italian in Adelaide

Italian Australians comprise the sixth-largest ethnic group in Australia, with the 2016 provisional census declaring one million people claim Italian as their first language. Most Australian residents born in Italy are now concentrated in cities like Adelaide, with more than 25,000 Italian speakers living in the east and west suburbs of Fulham, West Lakes, Newton, Payneham, Campbelltown and Torrensville. Naturally, these places enjoy a heavy Italian influence and you can find shops, stores, museums featuring Italian artists and many language exchange groups that gather together those who want to practise Italian with friends. If you would like to become one of them, just get in touch with us at Language Trainers and we will start designing a personalised Italian programme for you!

Staying home does not have to end your language journey. Quite the contrary, you can take one-on-one or small group online Italian lessons with our native, qualified language tutors. Reach out to us and our team will be happy to answer any questions!

Why Study Italian in Adelaide

For Work: Those looking to expand their professional horizons will find that Italian can be an asset in Adelaide. Many local companies, such as Excel Recruitment, Bene Aged Care and Southern Cross Care, are looking to expand to overseas markets, including to Italy. To achieve this, they require bilingual speakers to do business with their clients and partners abroad. And if you are looking to connect with entrepreneurs of Italian origin, you can get in touch with the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Adelaide on Carrington Street. Established in 1922, with an objective to promote trade and commerce between Italy and New South Wales, this chamber has helped a countless number of companies in both Italy and Australia to become successful in their business ventures by providing helpful trade services and facilities.

For Culture: The Italian culture is very much alive in Adelaide and you can experience it by attending cultural events, such as the Australia with Calabria Family Day. This event features Italian-inspired activities, like passata-making demonstrations, sports performances, delicious food and live music. Sing along to songs using the pronunciation you acquire in your lessons with Language Trainers! You can also take part in the Aperitivo Italiano event (part of the Settimana della Cucina Italiana) under the auspices of the Consulate of Italy in South Australia. Have a taste of excellent prosecco and enjoy a wide array of Italian stuzzichini, prepared by award-winning teams who come all the way from Italy. Why not try to put your Italian skills to use and impress them by speaking with them in their own language? Who knows, maybe they will even reveal some of their cooking secrets to you!

For Social: Culture aside, you will also be able to make new friends in Adelaide using the Italian skills you acquire in your language course. For example, you can join the Adelaide Italian Conversation Group / Parliamo in Italiano! As the name demonstrates, this is a language exchange group intended for those who speak Italian and want to practise in a relaxed, friendly environment. The point is to chat and converse with other Italian speakers, so they welcome anyone with an interest in the language and culture of Italy, no matter their age or proficiency level. Take advantage of this opportunity to put what you learn in your lessons with Language Trainers to use! Most of their meetings are held in cafés or themed restaurants, like the Messy Tomato on Flinders Street, where they serve fresh, home-made Italian food, such as focaccia or gnocci. Another place where you can have a taste of Italian cuisine is La Tombola on Unley Road, with mouth-watering daily specials that suit any palate. Its menu is entirely in Italian with English translations, which we are sure you will not need after taking some lessons with us!
