Greek in London
Greek: the longest-documented Indo-European language and linguistic key to the world’s greatest literature, including the Iliad and Odyssey. With such a strong establishment, it’s no surprise Greek is linked to many languages, including English, of which experts say 30% is derived from the ancient language. During the Classical Era in the Mediterranean, Greek was considered a lingua franca. Although not the bridge language of today’s modern world, Greek continues to have powerful global influence as the official language of Greece and Cyprus, and recognised status as a minority language in seven other countries.
Where to Practise Foreign Languages in London: Learning a language should not be limited to the classroom and does not have to end when you wave goodbye to your teacher. While your expert Language Trainers tutor will teach you what you need to know, the best way to master the language is to practise it as often as possible. There are some simple steps you can take to improve your foreign language skills while having fun. For example, you can join meet-up groups around the city that are full of other learners who are willing to practise with you. One of the is Mundo Lingo London, a language exchange group with a unique flag system. Quite simply, attendees must pick up and display flags that represent the languages they speak and would like to practise, so it is easy for them to pair up with others who are looking for the same. Another option is the Expat, Travelers and World Citizen Meetup, a group that gathers a community of multilingual people interested in making friends with people from all over the globe. Join their Friday social gatherings, cultural events and picnics to practise the language you are learning, build up your confidence and take your pronunciation and skills to the next level!
Where to Study Foreign Languages in London: Those who would like to obtain an official certificate after so much effort studying a foreign language will be happy to know there are hundreds of language schools around the city that offer accreditation. For example, The Institut Français on Queensberry Place is one place French learners can take the DALF. Meanwhile, higher education institutions offer esteemed language courses, such as the Queen Mary University of London or Imperial College London. The former, for example, has programmes in modern languages and applied linguistics at undergraduate and graduate levels. Study more than 20 languages, ranging from Spanish and Italian to Hebrew, sharpen your academic language skills, increase your employability and become more culturally-aware with these courses. However, you should be aware that many academic courses require students to demonstrate a minimum level of the language in question. At Language Trainers, we can adapt our Exam Preparation Course to ensure you achieve the passing grade you require. Our teachers are professionals and native speakers who can help you achieve fluency in a short time, no matter how challenging the language.
Language Jobs in London: Regardless of the career path you want to follow, learning a foreign language in London can help you succeed. The city is home to top-notch companies that are always hiring bilingual employees who can communicate with customers and partners abroad and locally. So, studying a language other than English will give you a competitive edge that will help you stand out when applying for jobs at companies such as Engies, Barclays, Bupa and Amazon. Or if you are looking to establish your own business abroad, you can always get in touch with the many Chambers of Commerce based in the city, like those of the Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Italian, Arab and Portuguese, just to name a few. These institutions will not only provide valuable information and contacts useful for establishing your business in another country, but they also organise networking events and conferences that will help you connect with other businesspeople from abroad.
Language Culture in London: Becoming multilingual will also come in handy for understanding foreign cultures on a deeper level. London is one of the most diverse cities in terms of culture, so you can always find thousands of festivals, parties, events and clubs all year long. Learning a relevant language, then, will help you gain a better understanding of specific events. For example, you can take part in the London Multicultural Festival, a free, colourful and family-friendly event where you can have a great time with your family and friends by visiting the ethnic displays, enjoying exotic performances and tasting rich, foreign cuisine. Or enjoy more culturally-specific events, like a little-known Italian tradition which occurs in the heart of London's "Little Italy". Each July, the procession of Our Lady of Mount Carmel draws thousands to the streets around St Peter's in Clerkenwell - the oldest Italian church in London. Or, if you are studying Chinese, you might be interested in taking part in the Dragon Boat Festival, the largest cultural event in the Chinese calendar after New Year. From Rio-style carnivals to French fetes and an Arabic bazaar, London has it all!
Regardless of the language you would like to study, Language Trainers has options for everyone. From the very challenging Mandarin Chinese to more exotic languages like Zulu, we can prepare personalised courses that adapt to your requirements and learning preferences. Just get in touch with us and we will make all the necessary arrangements for one of our tutors to teach you at your home, office or a public place of your choosing. For instance, libraries and cafes are great places to study in London, such as the Barbican Library on Silk St, the Ace Cafe London on the North Circular Rd or Rainforest Cafe on Shaftesbury Ave.
And if you are not living in downtown London at the moment but would like to study a language with us, don’t let that stop you! Our great teachers are ready and waiting for your call in places like Watford, Wembley, Bromley, Twickenham, Croydon, Dartford, Windsor, Hayes and Harlow.
