Italian lessons in Brisbane

Brisbane is a multicultural melting pot of students, residents and visitors from all over the world, each who has brought their own culture and stories. One of the most populous ethnic groups living in the city is the Italians, with more than 10,000 residents claiming Italian ancestry. Throughout the years, this community has shaped the cultural and social landscapes of the city: from the Settimana della Cucina Italiana to the Fiesta della Natividad, you can experience the genuine Italian culture throughout Brisbane without ever needing to travel to Europe. Moreover, in 2019, the Italian consulate opened new offices that will enable them to more effectively improve institutional, cultural and commercial relations between Italy and Queensland. So, there is no better time to learn Italian if you are living in Brisbane. Contact us today and get started with a personalised language course.

Social distancing does not have to stop you from learning a language in Brisbane. Contact us and we will prepare online courses tailored to your needs, preferences and language goals!

Why Study Italian in Brisbane

For Work: If you are looking for a new job around the city, sign up for an Italian course today and boost your marketability! With the advance of globalisation, more and more companies with headquarters in Brisbane need Italian speakers to communicate with the Italian market, at home and abroad. Some of them, like Motorama, OTTO Brisbane and Marchetti Executive Consultants, are always looking for bilingual speakers. So, learning Italian will look great on your CV and give you a competitive edge over other job applicants. But if you are looking for a career or position in another industry but do not know where to start, you can get in touch with the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Queensland. Since its foundation in 1989, it has served to strengthen business relationships and trade exchanges between Italy and Australia by providing professional support to companies and individuals. For example, you can participate in their annual trade shows and exhibitions.

For Culture: The Italian culture is very much alive for you to experience in Brisbane. For example, if you like parties, you can attend Festitalia, the biggest Italian festival in the region! Enjoy performances by groups like the internationally acclaimed Gruppo Storico Fivizzano Flag Throwers, the Brisbane Tarantella Dancers, swordsmen Prima Spada and much more! And check out a range of exhibitions, like displays by Ferrari, Vespa, Ducati and Alfa Romeo. Meanwhile, those who love cinema can attend the Lavazza Italian Film Festival, established in 1999. This event runs for over 3 weeks and screens more than 50 films in their original language. Immerse yourself in poignant tales of tragedy, courtroom dramas and cross-cultural rom-coms while improving your Italian listening skills!

For Social: Sign up for an Italian course and meet others who love the language and culture as much as you! For example, the Condividere la Lingua Italiana a Brisbane Meetup welcomes anyone who would like to practise and improve their Italian while having a good time. This group has more than 300 members, some of whom get together once a week at a themed bar or restaurant that serves Italian food. These eateries include Olive & Angelo on Edward Street and Pane e Vino on Albert Street, where you can taste delicious pasta, pizza and cannoli. Order this delicious food in Italian and impress your new friends with the skills you learn with us at Language Trainers.
