Spanish lessons in Brisbane

According to the 2011 Census, 16% of people living in Brisbane speak a language other than English at home. One of the most popular ones is Spanish, with 14 thousand speakers in the city. Taking a language course will help you connect with this growing community, apply for a bilingual job and even travel to Latin America or Spain and make the most out of your holidays. Language Trainers will provide you with flexible lessons so you learn Spanish at your own pace and time!

 

Why Study Spanish in Brisbane

For Work and Study: Being fluent in a world language like Spanish will give you highly employable communication skills. Many companies in Brisbane value bilingual speakers, such as VETA Education Consultancy, Impact English College Pty Ltd and GroundProbe Windsor QLD.  If you are not actively looking for a job but want to study, a knowledge of Spanish will help you to enrol in a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Queensland. This institution offers Spanish Majors and Minors in Latin American Studies. To be able to pass these programs, you need to have a high level of Spanish, so taking some lessons with Language Trainers will be essential! And if you are looking to travel to a Spanish-speaking country to put your newly-acquired skills into play, you will be glad to know you can fly direct to Madrid and Barcelona from Brisbane with a wide range of airlines including Singapore Airlines, China Southern and Qantas.

For Culture: Those interested in knowing more about Latin American culture can join some free Latin dancing lessons in Brisbane Square every Friday night. Or if you are more interested in cinema, you will be able to enjoy the annual Spanish Film Festival held at Palace Cinema every July since 2012, and the Hola! Mexican Film Festival that takes place every 2 years, usually at Tribal Theatre. These festivals feature dramas, romances, thrillers and major box-office hits from across Spain and Latin America, showcased in their original language with subtitles, which you hopefully will not need after taking a language course with us! And if you are more into themed parties, ever since 2011, the Mexican community in Brisbane has been organising an annual Fiesta Latina that celebrates Mexican culture, food and music, another great occasion to practise your Spanish with people who have similar interests in Latin American culture.

For Social and Food: There are many Spanish MeetUp groups you can join if you are looking to make new friends and practising your Spanish. The most popular of them is the Brisbane Spanish Language Meetup Group, with more than 2,000 members. They meet every month at different bars and they welcome anyone who wants to practise their Spanish! And if you are looking for Latino or Spanish restaurants, you will be happy to know that Brisbane has many options. One of the most popular places is Moda Restaurant on Petrie Terrace, which offers delicious Spanish dishes such as Manolete Chorizo or Jalapeños con Puré de Palta. It is usually full, so make sure you make a reservation in advance if you want to go and have dinner there! Another Mediterranean restaurant you cannot miss is Fuego Negro, on Albert Street, that brings traditional Spanish tapas to Brisbane. Imagine ordering Patatas Bravas or Croquetas using the Spanish pronunciation you learn with Language Trainers!

 

Where to Learn Spanish in and around Brisbane

Our Spanish lessons at Language Trainers are structured so you are in total control of their time and location. Our native Spanish teachers can go to your home or workplace. If these options do not suit you, you can meet at a public place if you prefer, such as the State Library of Queensland on Stanley St, Café Brisbane on George St or Coffee Anthology on Margaret St.

Or if you live outside the city centre, don’t worry. Our instructors are available for Spanish classes in areas such as Logan City, Gold Coast, Ipswich, Moreton Bay and Redland City.

What are you waiting for? Let’s go, vamos! Test your current Spanish level with our free Spanish Level Test so we can start designing a language package that suits your abilities and needs.
