Italian in Canberra
Why learn Italian in Canberra? – The Italian community has strong roots in Australia. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Italians formed the 8th largest group of overseas-born residents in Australia in 2018, making Italy the second most popular European country of birth for Australian residents. In the 2016 census, Italian was ranked as the 6th most commonly spoken language in Australia, with 1.2% of the Australian population being Italian speakers. Considering Italy’s history of arts, music, culture, and culinary finesse, it is no surprise that Italian is also one of the most popular languages studied in Australia, and the 4th most studied language in the world, according to General Assembly of the Italian Language in the World. With these demographics in mind, it makes perfect sense to sign up for Italian classes in Canberra, the thriving capital of Australia.
Canberra celebrates Italian culture with a passion that is difficult to rival anywhere else in Australia. The 2019 National Multicultural Festival in Canberra showcased, for example, the capital’s local Dante Alighieri Society, a society formed from a group of passionate Italian-music enthusiasts who perform music ranging from traditional Italian folk to opera arias. In 2006, Canberra also opened its own Italian Cultural Centre for its Italian community – thoughtfully designed to remind visitors of Italy with its large hall and traditional bell tower. Food festivals are hosted frequently, including the Week of Italian Cuisine, and the Vivere all’Italiana Festival in November, which saw over 3,000 visitors enjoying an authentic Italian atmosphere within the city in 2018. Taking Italian lessons in Canberra is a fantastic way to engage in this active, passionate community, whose events and activities are frequently supported by local embassies and funding Italian companies. Italian culture is one which embraces all newcomers, and learning its language will offer you far greater insights into the Italian world than you can ever imagine.
Studying Italian can also offer a business advantage, which is especially worth considering in light of potential investment plans between Italy and Australia. Several big-name Italian brands, such as the chocolate company Ferrero and the energy company Enel are all investing in Australia. Similarly, Austrade’s Italy Business Plan 2018-19 has found good opportunities for Australian firms in areas such as digital technology, renewable energy, and food. With Canberra’s economy rated by the ACT Government as one of the strongest in the country and its international service exports rising by 22% since 2015, investing in a European language such as Italian can give business owners and job-seekers a significant advantage over like-minded competitors in today’s increasingly international market. Taking Italian classes in Canberra can be a great way to boost individual employability, or a company’s international relations.
