Italian in Dallas
Home to more than 1.3 million people, Dallas is the 9th biggest city in the U.S., the 3rd biggest city in Texas, and is a place many Italian Americans have made their home. Italian merchants began arriving in America in the late 1700s, choosing to locate themselves in Texas once it became a settled territory. Since then, the number of Italians coming to America has grown steadily. Now, nearly 2% of all Italian Americans live throughout the state of Texas, including here in Dallas. So, if you would like to connect with the Italian-speaking community, understand better their fascinating history and culture, and even broaden your professional horizons, taking Italian classes will be of help. Contact us at Language Trainers and we will start designing a personalized language course!
Why Study Italian in Dallas
For Culture: So, where can you find out more about Italian culture in Dallas? Since the 1970s, the Italian Club of Dallas on Inwood Road, a group of people who share a love for Italian culture, cuisine, language, and heritage, has celebrated Italian culture through social and culinary events. For example, the club organizes an annual Italian Gala, where you can meet other like-minded people who share your interest in all things Italian. If you prefer watching movies, the International Film Festival of Dallas showcases the best in international cinema, including those in Italian and by Italian filmmakers. For instance, in 2019, the festival hosted the world premiere of “The Disappearance of My Mother” by Italian director Beniamino Barrese. Taking Italian lessons in Dallas will help you understand the jokes and colloquialisms on screen, and the listening skills you practice in your Language Trainers lessons will allow you to say goodbye to subtitles!
For Social: Those who are looking to make new friends while practicing their Italian can join the Speak Italian in Dallas Meetup, a group of Italophiles who meet to speak in Italian over some good food and wine. They also discuss Italian movies, books, games, places, and life in general. And they regularly attend themed events, such as the annual Gelato Festival, which brings the best Italian gelato to Dallas, inspiring many restaurants to add it to their menus. After the meetings, why not go and enjoy some traditional dishes with your new friends? A great place is Palmieri's Cafe on Hardwood Street, which offers the best in Italian pastries and coffee. And if you would like to prepare authentic Italian food for your friends, you can go to hybrid grocery and restaurant Eataly, on Central Expressway. Imagine opening an Italian recipe book and cooking a meal from scratch without needing to translate a word! Taking Italian classes in Dallas will give you the confidence to do just that.
For Work: Knowing Italian will look great on your resume and will allow you to stand out when looking for a new job. For example, there are many Italian companies based in the city that are always looking to hire bilingual speakers, such as Verona Marble Company, Horizon Italian Tile, and Gucci. And if you would like to connect with businesses of Italian origin, you can get in touch with the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce of Texas. This institution organizes several events in the city with the aim of helping entrepreneurs to network and build friendly international relations. Take advantage of these opportunities to connect with fellow businesspeople and impress them with your Italian language skills!
