Italian in Santa Barbara

It’s one of Europe’s most dominant languages. 64 million people speak it as their first language. And when counting second language learners, the language boasts a whopping community of 85 million speakers worldwide. Italian speakers are sprouting up around the world, as it quickly becomes one of today’s most popular romance languages.

Originally a small town made up of several adobes and families of Spanish explorers, Santa Barbara was a mission city that quickly grew into a global powerhouse. The second half of the 20th century saw the appearance of offshore oil drilling which helped Santa Barbara expand rapidly. A few decades later, the service industry has begun to boom in the area making the need for workers with foreign language a must for employers. Workers looking to capitalize on this trend can begin learning a new language today with a qualified, native speaking teacher at Language Trainers. All lessons and courses are set to the student’s pace to optimize learning. Our free online language tests allow you to test your foreign language abilities and give you the opportunity to get started today by contacting us about a custom-made plan.
