Spanish in Canberra

Why learn Spanish in Canberra? Canberra, Australia's capital and the country's largest inland city, is home to a population of 410,000. The Australian Bureau of Statistics suggests 70 percent of Australians are of European descent, emigrating from numerous countries, including Spain. More than half the country's Spanish-born citizens work in managerial, professional, or trade occupations. It is no surprise then, that Spanish is in the top five of languages spoken in Canberra other than English.


Did you know Spain's earliest contribution to Australia dates back to the first Spanish settlements in the eighteenth century? Spanish sheep were introduced to the country and were the beginning of the Australian Merino breed we know today – and from that auspicious start, relations between Australia and Spain have continued to grow! Since June 2017, Australia and Spain have agreed for 1,500 young people to live in each other's countries under the successful Work and Holiday Maker program. Trade between Australia and Spain is also strong. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade indicates that $3.4 billion in goods were traded in 2017 alone. Spain is an important market for Australia, as well as a provider of goods and services. Taking Spanish classes in Canberra could be an important career move for you for that reason!

If that all sounds fairly serious, what about some fun Spanish things to do in Canberra? The Spanish Australian Club of Canberra is a social club that has been running since 1967, and aims to promote Spanish culture through food and friendship. The Anusu club at the Australian National University offers similar immersion through conversation groups and social events. There are Flamenco classes and performances in Canberra too, if you want to experience this beautiful Spanish dance for yourself. Spanish language exchanges are held all over the city in various pubs, clubs, and cafes. Taking Spanish courses in Canberra will help you enjoy all of these experiences!

Perhaps the idea of Spanish social clubs and dancing is too much if you are new to the language and Spanish culture. There are lots of smaller ways you can get involved and give Spanish a try, even when you’re just starting out! For example, you can have the taste of Spain right here in Canberra with some amazing Spanish restaurants on our doorstep. Try Black Fire for the true taste of a Spanish kitchen. Mr. Papa offers a menu from both Spain and South America. Bad Betti's is great for Mexican and Spanish cuisine. And if you prefer a Spanish flavour that doesn't go straight to your waistline, then how about film? The Spanish Film Festival in Canberra runs annually between April and May. You will get to experience the very best in Spanish and Latin American cinema. However you choose to interact with Spanish here, Spanish courses in Canberra will greatly improve your experiences.

Whether you are learning Spanish for fun or for business, we have a course specifically tailored to you. Why not take our free online Spanish level test, or send us a quick enquiry to find out more?
