Italian in Edmonton

Why learn Italian in Edmonton? The Italian community has had strong, established roots in Canada ever since the first Italian explorer, Giovanni Caboto, first arrived in 1497. Today in 2018, over 1.5 million Canadian citizens today claim full or partial Italian ancestry, making them the 7th largest ethnic group in the country. In Edmonton alone, over 12,000 people speak Italian fluently, or have knowledge of the language. Although its Little Italy is no longer as busy as it had been in the 70s and 80s, the Italian Centre Shop and other Italian restaurants in the area continue to bring people together with its authentic Italian food. Taking Italian courses in Edmonton is an excellent way to participate in a vibrant and active community which has played a vital role in shaping Canada’s, and Edmonton’s, modern-day multicultural identity.

Alberta’s increasing potential and its promising future, with an expected 2.5% growth in economy per year from 2019 to 2021, means that it is a magnet for international trade. Edmonton, as Canada’s lead oil producer, is already at the centre stage for overseas commerce. Considering the recent Comprehensive Economic and Trading Agreement between Canada and the EU, applied provisionally in 2017, the opportunities coming from Europe will only be increasing in number. Italy’s position as Canada’s 3rd most important trading partner with the EU will also be climbing with time. Learning the language will be key to establishing positive business relationships. Taking Italian lessons in Edmonton is the perfect way to fully take advantage of all the potential offered not only from within the city, but from abroad as well.

As our world becomes increasingly globalized, so too will demand for knowledge of multiple languages. According to the BBC, one estimate puts the value of knowing a second language at up to $128,000 over 40 years—a massive financial benefit which also opens the door to a wider variety of careers and opportunities. According to another survey in 2017, over 60% of Canadians believe that knowing multiple languages is essential; not just in culture or business, language permeates every aspect of life. If you are a beginner, or if you are looking to study more languages, Italian is one of the best to invest in. Not only does it allow you to freely explore a country with the largest number of UNESCO sites in the world, it can also be perceived as the gateway to other Romance languages, such as Spanish, French, or Portuguese.

If you would be interested in investing in this beautiful language, then consider signing up for our Italian classes in Edmonton, where our native-speaking teachers will guide you to fluency in the comforts of your own home. We offer personalized lessons tailored to suit your individual needs, and our teachers plan lessons flexibly around your schedule. Take one of our free online Italian level tests to see where you are, and send us an inquiry to get started right away!
