Apprenez à parler Italien à Vancouver

Start Learning

Vancouver is considered to be one of the most liveable cities in the world, full of things to see and do. Settled over 125 years ago and built by people from all over the globe, Vancouver is an ethnically and linguistically diverse city, with around half the population speaking a language besides English. Among these languages is Italian, recorded by the American Survey Community in 2017 to be spoken by around 15,000 people as a first language, which comprises around 4% of the population. This Italian community has helped to form part of the cityscape, settling in the Strathcona district and the northern Commercial Drive area, lovingly deemed as Vancouver’s “Little Italy”. There are plenty of reasons to learn a language but taking Italian lessons in Vancouver is especially meaningful for those who want to connect with their heritage or to learn more about this modern-day city’s Italian history.

Why Study Italian in Vancouver

Learn Italian for Work: Those who take Italian classes in Vancouver have the potential to get a leg up on their fellow competition: Italy is Canada's 9th biggest trading partner, with bilateral trade between Canada and Italy accounting for almost $10 billion annually! Additionally, Italy is one of Canada's largest global merchandise partners. So, if you would like to work for a company of Italian origin, you should get in touch with the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada West on Pender Street. This institution forms part of a network of over 150 offices in Italy and 80 foreign Italian Chambers of Commerce throughout the world, promoting friendly business relations between Italy and Canada and hosting networking events every month. Why not attend and impress Italian entrepreneurs with your language skills?

Learn Italian for Culture: Since Italy is the cradle of Western Civilization, people choose to learn Italian for all sorts of reasons—anything from wanting to get a better understanding of Italian film and music to finding new ways to appreciate their favourite food. This is possible in Vancouver, where there are cultural activities and events going on all year round to celebrate Canada’s close ties with Italy. Several are hosted by the Italian Cultural Centre in Vancouver, which opened in 1977 to promote Italian culture, values and heritage and to share these with other communities. From banqueting facilities to cultural activities, this organization aims to keep the Italian community alive and active. The Centre even hosts an annual Italian film festival that is growing every year. Take advantage of this opportunity to put into practice what you learn with us at Language Trainers and sharpen your Italian listening skills while enjoying great movies!

Learn Italian for Social: If you would like to further practise what you learn with us at Language Trainers, it is a good idea to join the Vancouver Italian Language Meetup Group. This Italian conversation group is open to all language abilities, from beginner to advanced speakers, so don’t be shy and put your new language skills into play while having a good time! After a meeting, if you want to immerse yourself in even more Italian, you can head out with your new friends to the annual festival called Italian Day on the Drive, held on Commercial Drive, where some of the best Italian films of the year are screened at the Rio Theatre. Each year, the festival uses a different theme under which all things Italian are celebrated, from food and fashion to vehicles and music. Whatever your interest may be, there is something for you and people to meet with similar Italian interests!
