Italian lessons in Sydney

The Italian community in Australia is one of the largest ethnic communities in the country. According to the 2016 census, there are over 1 million people in Australia claiming Italian ancestry, with 204,160 living in Sydney alone. Italians have been migrating to Australia for a considerable length of time. Back in 1881, Italians made up the largest group of non-British immigrants in Australia and their community would later be named La Bella Venezia; although today, it is more commonly known as New Italy. By taking Italian classes in Sydney, you are investing in your future. Opportunities for travel are abundant for business and personal reasons, and it is always more interesting to join in the many festivals, shows and other celebrations when you have at least a basic level of Italian.

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

Why Study Italian in Sydney

For Travel: One of the reasons Italians lessons in Sydney have become so popular is a resurgence in Italian-Australians reconnecting with their heritage. Cheaper airfares have increased the number of people going back to visit their "motherland" and it is estimated that 195,700 people departed Australia in 2016 to visit Italy, specifically. So, if you are interested in travelling to this fascinating country, you will be glad to know there are affordable flights via Etihad, China Airlines and Qantas. Even though the flight is long, it is definitely worth the effort! Soon enough, you will be in Rome, visiting magnificent buildings and ordering food with the Italian pronunciation you acquire with us at Language Trainers!

For Work: Also, Australia is a major importer of Italian goods, including food, fashion and cars. Bilateral trade figures between Australia and Italy topped an impressive $6.7 billion in 2018. The two countries also work together on a number of projects in both Australia and Italy, so Italian courses in Sydney have become an integral business tool for many multi-national companies. So, if you are looking to network with Italian entrepreneurs, you can contact the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Sydney on William St. It was established in 1922 with the objective to promote trade and commerce between Italy and New South Wales and, since then, it has helped countless companies in both Italy and Australia to succeed in their business ventures.

For Culture and Social: The Italian culture is also very prevalent in Sydney and Australia, in general. There are hundreds of Italian-influenced cafes and restaurants all over Sydney, such as Vapiano on King Street or the Pendolino on George Street, where you can order different types of pasta, pizza and cagnoli! For a truly authentic experience, there are a lot of excellent Italian festivals held in Sydney each year, allowing non-Italians to experience a little piece of Italy at their local level. One of them is the Norton Street Italian Festa, which is completely transformed by colour, sound and the cooking aromas of great Italian food, and by street activities and on-stage entertainment celebrating all things Italian. And if you would like to share all of these amazing cultural activities with others passionate about Italy, you can join The Best Italian Meetup Group (Sydney). They organise regular events where members can chat and socialise in Italian, including meetings at restaurants and bars. Take advantage of these opportunities and put into use what you learn in your lessons with us at Language Trainers!
