Spanish lessons in Melbourne
Melbourne is home to more than four million people, accounting for nearly 20 percent of Australia's entire population, and almost 20,000 of them claim Spanish and Latin American ancestry and speak Spanish at home, according to the 2011 census. Learning this fascinating language, then, will give you the chance to interact with this growing community, expand your professional horizons and even make the most out of your trips to Spain or Latin America! Just get in contact with Language Trainers and we will start designing a personalised course that fits your needs and schedule.
Why Study Spanish in Melbourne
For Work and Travel: Learning Spanish in Melbourne will look great on your CV and help you improve your job prospects. If you are looking to connect with entrepreneurs of Spanish origin, you should get in touch with the Spanish-Australian Chamber of Commerce on New South Head Road. Launched in 2011, this institution aims to be the point of reference for the Spanish-Australian business community and helps to develop business relations among its members. To achieve its goal, the Chamber organises corporate lunches, seminars, networking evenings and even cocktail events which are attended by native Spanish speakers. Why not go and impress them with the language skills you acquire in your lessons with Language Trainers? Another institution you can contact to expand your business network is the Australia Spain Business Association (ASBA), a not-for-profit organisation established in 1992 and which is dedicated to promoting business and cultural collaboration. Today, its events are open to individuals of all nationalities, so take advantage of this opportunity and put your Spanish into play!
For Culture: Those more interested in experiencing Spanish and Latin American culture can attend the Vida Melbourne Latin Summer Festival, a prime example of the Spanish cultural events hosted in the city. Each year, this festival attracts around 40,000 visitors celebrating Spanish culture through art and entertainment. If you are more into Spanish music, you will be pleased to know that there are many restaurants, like Vamos on Little Bourke St where you can enjoy flamenco shows while you sample some delicious tapas. This place even has “karaoke Saturdays”, so you will be able to sing along to the music using the Spanish pronunciation you acquired with us at Language Trainers!
For Social: For those who would like to socialise, there are some language exchange groups they can join in Melbourne. The most popular one of them is the Spanish Amigos Meetup Group, with more than 3,000 members. This is a friendly gathering of people who enjoy speaking Spanish and share a common interest in Latin American culture in general. And after a meeting, why not take your new friends to one of the many tapas bars available? For example, MoVida on Hosier Lane is one of the most popular Spanish tapas restaurants in the city. There, you will be able to sample delicious papas bravas, paella and tortilla. Or if you would like to taste Argentinian food, you can visit Palermo on Little Bourke Street to have the best asado you can imagine! Taking Spanish lessons in Melbourne will give you the confidence to order in Spanish in any of these eateries.
