Learn How to Speak Italian in Dublin

Get Started and Learn Italian

Dublin is a multicultural city, and this shows in the substantial increase in the number of people speaking languages other than English. One of them is Italian, a language associated with the arts and culture. Taking Italian lessons will not only look great on your CV but it will also give you the chance of connecting with the growing Italian-speaking population in Dublin (more than 10,000 people of Italian origin live in the city today!). Just contact us at Language Trainers and we will start designing a language course tailored to your needs and schedule.

Why Learn Italian in Dublin

Learn Italian for Work: If you are looking for a job in an Italian company, you should consider contacting the Federation of Italian Business in Ireland, an institution that aims to help the development of economic relationships and trade between Italy and Ireland. This organisation usually welcomes Italian businesspeople coming to Dublin, offers consultancy services to Italian companies who want to invest in Ireland and promotes cooperation between these two countries. Some of their training sessions are delivered by Italian speakers, so it is a great chance to go and practise your listening skills. Another institution that can help you network is the Irish Branch of the Italian Chamber of Commerce. Set up in 2012, it promotes different programs to further connect Ireland and Italy such as the Italian Desk on Princes St, which gives financial and legal advise to both Italian businesses wishing to expand in Ireland and Irish companies that seek to branch out to the Italian market.

Learn Italian for Social and Food: You can use Italian to make new friends in Dublin by joining the Dublin Italian Language Social Networking MeetUp Club. With 2000+ members, it is one of the most popular groups of people who meet and mingle with local Italian language and culture lovers to practise and have some fun. And don’t forget to visit some of the many restaurants that offer exquisite Italian dishes in the city. La Caverna Restaurant on Fownes St is a great option to try seafood, beef and stews cooked in the Italian style. Another place you should visit is Il Vicoletto, a classic restaurant with Italian-style decor and food. You can try some Parmigiana di Melanzane (layered aubergine slices oven baked with tomato sauce, basil, mozzarella cheese and parmesan) or Calamari in Crosta con Salsa Carpione. Their menus are written in Italian with explanations in English, but we are sure you will not need them after taking some Italian lessons with us!

Learn Italian for Culture: Those interested in getting to know more about the fascinating Italian culture can attend the annual Italian Fusion Festival, the biggest Italian event in Europe outside of Italy. It started in 2012 and it takes place in bars around Dublin. Its main goal is to promote cultural exchanges between Italy and Ireland. Every year, bands from both countries participate, playing songs in Italian and English. These concerts are usually accompanied by videos, poetry reading and a glass of tasty Italian prosecco included in the ticket. Also, The Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK, together with different Italian institutions, organises annual events in Dublin to promote travelling to Italian cities. For example, in 2019 the Sardinia Department of Tourism hosted an engaging presentation trying to promote their island as a great tourist destination. The speakers at this event spoke both English and Italian, so it’s a nice opportunity to put your new listening skills into play.
