Learn How to Speak Italian in Cambridge

Get Started and Learn Italian

The Italian Peninsula is one of the pivotal centres in the history of the West. From the Roman Empire to the medieval communes, from the Renaissance to Fascism, Italy has shaped the culture and politics of Europe and the wider world for over two millennia, including that of the UK and the city of Cambridge, in particular. This extends to the city’s population itself and, according to the 2011 census, there are nearly 6,000 Italians living in Cambridge. This is extraordinary, considering that only 120,000 people live in the city. You will find Italy in all its authenticity everywhere you go, from an Italian-speaking radio to the many language exchange groups around the city. Thus, studying the language and culture of Italy offers a wonderful opportunity to engage with the vibrant community of Italian speakers living in the city. Get in touch with Language Trainers today and we will start preparing a language course that suits your needs and requirements.

Why Study Italian in Cambridge

Learn Italian for Work and Studies: Learning Italian in Cambridge will give you a competitive edge that will make you stand out from monolingual candidates when applying for a bilingual job. Companies like Evi Technologies or Zizzi are always looking for Italian speakers to communicate with their partners and clients abroad. And those who are not looking for a bilingual job but would like to take up higher education instead will be glad to know the University of Cambridge offers several courses in Italian. For example, their Italian Course offers an interdisciplinary programme that combines both the study of the language and its fascinating culture. Furthermore, the programme includes a year abroad living in Italy, so make sure you polish your Italian skills with us first to ensure you can make the most out of this amazing experience.

Learn Italian for Culture: Work aside, you can also experience the Italian culture around Cambridge without leaving the city. For example, you can participate in the events organised by the Dante Alighieri Institute in Cambridge. Every week, they host a Book and Film Club, where you can read and watch classic and contemporary films and books in their original language. Forget about translations and subtitles and make use of the skills you learn in your language course! And after taking some lessons with us at Language Trainers, you can even try to listen to Radio Dante, the first bilingual radio in Cambridge with an hour-long show of music and discussion of a variety of topics. Stay tuned on 105 FM and you will hear news and debates about films, books and art in general in Italian.

Learn Italian for Social: Sign up for an Italian course and you will also be able to expand your social circle in the city. If you are looking to meet others with a similar passion for the Italian language and culture, why not join the InterNations Space for the Italians in Cambridge? The group welcomes any person with an interest in knowing more about the language and the culture of the Italians. Or you can join the meetings of the Cambridge-Italian Language Exchange, a group open to anyone who wants to meet up to have a chat in Italian to improve their skills and to get to know more about their fascinating culture.
