Italian Lessons in Miami

Miami, one of the United States' most diverse cities, is home to a significant community of Italian speakers. This makes the city an ideal place to immerse yourself in the Italian language and culture, as you'll not only get to connect with many of the locals who speak the language, but you'll also get to enjoy numerous events that celebrate the unique Italian traditions. On top of that, studying Italian is the perfect way to reconnect with your family's heritage and truly understand the customs of the many Italian American families who came to the country in search of a better life.

Taking Italian classes in Miami will also allow you to access many interesting job opportunities, especially if you work in tourism. According to the latest census, over 300,000 Italian visitors come to the city every year. This means that by becoming bilingual, you'll attract many potential new clients and expand your business in the city. And if this wasn't enough, learning Italian is a brilliant way of enhancing your trips. Not only will you feel more comfortable throughout Italy and parts of Switzerland, but you'll also connect with locals in a whole new way.

Why Study Italian in Miami?

Learn Italian for Work and Travel

In recent years, Italian has become more and more popular in Miami, and nowadays, it stands as one of the most studied foreign languages after Spanish, German, and French. One of the reasons for this is the many advantages that learning this language has for your professional life. For example, if you work in the tourism sector, learning Italian can give you a really competitive edge, as most hotels and tourism agencies in the city are constantly looking for professionals who can communicate with their many Italian clients. Alternatively, if you own a business in the city, having Italian skills will help you provide a better service to the thousands of Italian tourists that visit Miami every year, and improve your business relationships with the various European businesspeople that come to expand their networks.

If you're passionate about travel and have plans to explore Italy or Switzerland in the near future, choosing to learn Italian is a really smart choice. While it's true that you can easily find English speakers in both these countries, achieving bilingualism will enable you to forge genuine connections with locals on a much deeper level and fully immerse yourself in the local customs and traditions.

Learn Italian for Social

Italian culture, renowned for its rich art and literature, stands out as one of the most captivating in the world. While it's undeniable that visiting Italy is one of the best ways of immersing yourself in Italian culture, there are many things you can do in Miami to learn about Italy and its traditions. For example, if you are a cinema lover, every year you have the chance to attend the Italian Film Festival, which takes place in April at the O Cinema South Beach, located at 1130 Washington Ave. Held by the Italian Film Festival Inc, a non-profit organization that seeks to promote Italian cinema and culture outside of Italy, this festival showcases some of the best Italian movies of the year. By attending this festival, you’ll get to experience compelling narratives and listen to various Italian accents, as all films are screened in their original language with English subtitles. On top of that, you’ll get to learn a lot of useful phrases that Italians use every day and boost your listening skills.

Learn Italian for Culture

Another reason why you should learn Italian this year is to improve your social life in the city. In addition to having the chance to meet some of the locals who speak Italian as a native language, studying the language will allow you to socialize with like-minded learners from all around the world who share your passion for Italian culture.

There are many language exchange events that you’ll be able to attend once you learn some basic Italian words and phrases. One of them is Parliamo Italiano a Miami !, which is organized by a group of friendly language enthusiasts who like to gather once or twice a month to speak in Italian. They usually meet at different Italian restaurants around the city to enjoy some pasta and talk about various topics. They welcome students of all levels, so even if you’re just starting out, you can attend to listen to some of the most advanced learners use the language and ask them for tips and recommendations.

italian Songs

Almeno tu nell’universo- Mia Martini

Mia Martini is one of the most well-known famous singers in Italy who often sings about heartbreak and disappointment. That is the case of Almeno tu nell’universo, where the poetic protagonist sings about loving a strange man, unique in this world, but who doesn’t pay any attention to her. The song is almost entirely sung in the conditional tense, so it’s great practice for intermediate or even advanced students looking to expand their knowledge of grammar and vocabulary. There is heavy use of adverbs, for example, like davvero (really) or per sempre (forever). Enjoy her song here!

L’emozione non ha voce - Adriano Celentano

This song follows a man who’s confessing his love for a married woman, knowing she will never love him back. Still, he claims that his love will last for life. As the song is slow and Adriano Celentano pronounces each word very clearly, beginner students will find it easy to start training their listening comprehension while picking up some new words, such as “amico” (friend), vita (life), dormir (sleep), and more! The song also uses the future tense a lot, so it’s great if you’re looking to practice that particular grammatical feature while listening to great music. Click here to listen to this hit!
