Italian in Birmingham

Why learn Italian In Birmingham? – The Italian influence in Birmingham is so ingrained even Jamie Oliver opened an Italian restaurant here. Who doesn't love pizza, pasta or gelato? Like many places in the world, Italian immigrants have shared their culture and their cuisine with their new neighbours and Birmingham is not different in that regards. The Italian Quarter in Birmingham, known as Little Italy, is the hot spot for all things Italian in this great city. The population of Italians in the UK, according to the 2011 census, is approximately 600,000 and they are fondly referred to as Britalians.


By taking Italian lessons in Birmingham, you can 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 and enjoy the authentic atmosphere of Italia right in the middle of England's midlands.

Perhaps travel is your motivation for signing up for Italian classes in Birmingham. Do you work in the UK's tourism and hospitality industry? Make guests feel more at home by greeting them in their native language. Both Italy and the UK are some of the oldest countries in Europe, and both have a long and fascinating history with many ancient and historic landmarks. On average, 1.9 million Italian tourists visit the UK each year and 3.3 million Britons visit the heart of the ancient Roman Empire. Why not learn the language and converse with Italians whether you decide to travel there or greet Italian visitors? Either way, having knowledge of both languages will enhance your experience.

If you're an opera buff then you're aware that many of the world's greatest operas are performed in Italian. The Birmingham Opera Company frequently has some great performances on offer, but many people would probably enjoy a visit to the opera but are reluctant to do so because they don't understand Italian. The performance can be fantastic but you'd miss out on so much without knowing the dialogue.

Or 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 between these two countries. Even with Brexit, trade is still thriving and Britons just can't seem to get enough of Italian products: whether it's food, fashion or cars. So whatever your need for learning Italian is, take our Italian level test and send us a quick enquiry to see how you can get started with one-on-one Italian classes today.
