Italian in Birmingham
Who doesn't love pizza, pasta or gelato? Like many places in the world, Italian immigrants have shared their culture and cuisine with their new neighbours, and Birmingham is no different. But the Italian influence in Birmingham is much deeper than you might think! The population of Italians in the UK, according to the 2011 census, is approximately 600,000 (fondly referred to as Britalians), and 5,000 of them live in Birmingham. If you would like to interact with this growing community on another level, broaden your professional horizons and even make the most out of your trips to Italy, then taking Italian classes is a great idea. Contact us at Language Trainers today, so we can start designing a personalised programme for you!
Why Study Italian in Birmingham
For Work: Perhaps you are considering entering the dynamic world of international business. If so, you really should consider enrolling in Italian courses in Birmingham. Italy and the UK enjoy a relatively prosperous trade relationship, with bilateral trade of £25.7 billion in 2018. Even with Brexit, trade is still thriving and Britons just can't seem to get enough of Italian products, whether food, fashion or cars. And if you are in the real estate industry, you should attend a networking event, organised by the Italian Chamber of Commerce, called a Place in the Sun Live. It takes place annually in the NEC Birmingham on North Ave, and it is the perfect place to meet potential clients interested in purchasing properties in Italy for leisure, holidays, retirement, relocation or investment.
For Travel: Perhaps travel is your motivation for signing up for Italian classes in Birmingham. Do you want to travel to Italy? Or do you work in the UK's tourism and hospitality industry and would like to make Italian guests feel more at home by greeting them in their native language? Both Italy and the UK have long and fascinating histories, with many ancient and historic landmarks throughout their respective territories. On average, 1.9 million Italian tourists visit the UK each year and 3.3 million British people visit the heart of the ancient Roman Empire. Why not learn the language and speak with Italians, whether you decide to travel to Italy or welcome Italian visitors to the UK? Either way, knowing both languages will enhance your experience.
For Culture: By taking Italian lessons in Birmingham, you can also enjoy the full Italian experience in this vibrant city. Learn how to order your favourite food like a pro or have a chat with one of the Italian locals. Join in the festivities of the Feast of Saint Mark Italian Festival at Saint Mark’s Basilica and enjoy the authentic atmosphere of Italy in the heart of The Midlands of England. And if you love art, you will be happy to know that the Birmingham Museum of Art has a section dedicated to Italian works. Some of their audio guides are in Italian as well, so it is a great opportunity for you to test the listening skills you learn in your course with us at Language Trainers!
