According to a 2011 Census, there were 131,195 Italians residing in England, not to mention those coming for short stays and travelling through the country. There are even more UK residents who travel to the UK and stay for extended periods. Wouldn't it be great to learn how to speak Italian before you go? Or know how to have a conversation if you meet an Italian living in Manchester?
You may even have Italian origins yourself without knowing it, as many Europeans immigrated from country to country back in the day. So just how does one go about learning this beautiful language?
In Manchester, there are all kinds of opportunities to learn Italian! Let's look at some of them now...
Learning the Italian language through an association allows you to know more about Italian culture and learn your Italian exercises smoothly and affordably.
Established in 1996, the Manchester branch of the Dante Society’s is one of many branches that exist around the world. The Society’s headquarters are in Rome, and its mission is to promote Italian language culture in many different countries. Membership is open to both Italians and non-Italians alike, and members, supporters, and even non-members can enjoy a wide range of activities and events throughout the year. Such as conversation get-togethers, coffee dates, art exhibition visits and more.
Of course, if you want to improve your skills in between fun events, you can take Italian classes with the society. For example, they have intermediate classes running right now on Tuesday nights for 1.5 hrs with a pay-as-you go pricing. A great option for those who have variable schedules and can't commit to a fixed schedule. Prices are very reasonable at:
£ 6.00 per persona per serata / per person per evening
£ 4.00 per studenti universitari / higher education students
They are also offering Beginner Italian lessons for a 3 month period on Tuesdays for an hour in the afternoon for only:
£ 84.00 / members and college/university students
£ 91.00 /non-members
In Beginners classes, you often learn basic grammar and vocabulary, how to have short introductory conversations with others, and simple ways of getting by in you happen to be lucky enough to travel within Italy.
The MIA or Manchester Italian Association is one of the oldest Italian associations in the UK, tracing its roots back to 1888! You can count them to organize events throughout the year to promote the welfare of the Italian community, it's history, culture and heritage, and bring together young people in the community.
One of the most high profile event they host is the Italian Procession which takes place every July. This involves the carrying of different religious emblems ( the Madonna, the Calvary, St. Anthony and beautiful banners) throughout the city, from Manchester city centre, passing by the Town Hall, and to the Catholic cathedral of St. John in Salford.
The procession is accompanied by the Lord Mayors of Manchester and Salford, members from the Italian consulate, women dressing in the colourful regional clothing of Italy, children in their first communion outfits, and culminates in a service led by the Bishop of Salford. All of this is followed by a festive gathering with accordion music, food and drinks. If you are interested in the Italian language and culture, it's definitely worthwhile to check it out!
For those who are not interested in traditional Italian language lessons with an Italian teacher, but also don't have the means to pay for a trip to Italy, another option is to learn Italian by going for a drink!
The Man Uni Italian Society, offers conversation exchanges to practice Italian and English. They get together over coffee, pizza and beer for a more entertaining way to practice your language skills. They also organize a weekly breakfast on once a week in order to "start the day in the nicest Italian way possible". The society also offers a theater project, several different socials throughout the year, sport tournaments and cultural nights. A variety of options to help you learn to pronounce your words correctly, keep progressing and meet new people with similar interests as you.
The best way to truly progress is to practice speaking and a coffee meet up is one of the best and cheapest ways available. Visit the website of the club or the Facebook page to post messages and keep up-to-date of the different conversations meet-ups offered.
The Meetup website also offers different events to gather with others interested in your language of choice. In the Language and Culture category online, it is possible to find: Italian cooking classes, language exchanges, coffee meet-ups and meet different Italian language learners and speakers within your area.
Keep your eye out for the events that interest you and register for regular email notices. For the price of a coffee, you can improve your Italian vocabulary and prepare for your next trip to Italy for the holidays!
