Italian in London

London is one of the most multicultural cities in the world and one of the most popular languages spoken is Italian, with more than 150,000 speakers according to the 2011 census. There have been scores of Italians in London since the first half of the 19th century, when they settled in areas such as Soho and Clerkenwell, and this fascinating culture has shaped the city in many ways, from sculptures to entertainment and delicious ice-cream. Taking Italian lessons, then, will not only make you a more valuable employee in the marketplace for your multilingual skills, but will also allow you to connect with the growing Italian community in London. Just get in touch with us at Language Trainers and we will offer an Italian course tailored to your needs and schedule. We prioritise your convenience, so we guarantee you will be able to study, no matter how busy your timetable!

Why Study Italian in London

For Work: London offers several opportunities for Italian speakers who would like to advance in their careers. For example, you can get in touch with CV & Coffee, a recruitment company specialising in qualified Italian-speaking candidates. You only have to register your CV in their database and you will be contacted by the recruitment team when an opportunity appears. Another institution that can help you network with Italian-speaking entrepreneurs is the Italian Chamber of Commerce in London on Princes St, an organisation that aims at ensuring friendly business relations between Italy and England by frequently hosting events that promote networking among its members. One of the most popular ones is Welcome Italia, a fair that has been taking place since 2012. You can attend and taste amazing food, listen to business conferences and interact with Italian native speakers using the skills you acquired in your lessons with us!

For Culture: You can also experience a lot of Italian culture in London. If you are a music lover, for example, you can attend one of the events organised by Popup Opera on St Paul's Place, where you can listen to magnificent Italian opera in its original language. Another institution that organises concerts and cultural events is the Italian Cultural Institute on Belgrave Square, the official governmental body that promotes Italian culture in England and Wales. For example, they organise events, talks, exhibitions and educational programmes related to Italian art which incorporate painting, sculpture, performance, and multi-media installations. And if you are more into cinema, you will be happy to know CinemaItalia UK screens Italian films monthly at the Regent Street Cinema, such as L’uomo che Compro la Luna or Dove Bisogna Stare.  Most of their screenings are accompanied by Q&As with Italian film directors and actors, so take advantage of this opportunity of putting your new Italian skills into action.

For Social: If you would like to make new friends with a similar passion for the Italian language, you can join the popular London Italian Language Meetup Group. This is a friendly gathering of more than 3,900 members who get together to speak Italian and have some fun at least twice a month. They usually meet at bars to have an aperitivo and some food. Their favourite venue is Bocca di Lupo on Archer St, a traditional Italian restaurant where you can have some gnocchi, spaghettis a la carbonara, pizza and prosecco. Imagine ordering those delicious dishes with your newly-acquired Italian pronunciation! Another place you can visit if you love Italian pasta is Locanda Locatelli on Seymour St, a restaurant with an extensive wine list and notable ravioli!
