Learner’s feedback

w

Effective

We weren’t really aware of her true progress until we went on vacation abroad again and she found herself in a situation where she had to speak with foreigners. Last year, she was mostly quiet even though she knew the language. This year, it was as if she was a completely different person, talking, having fun, she found new friends; it was incredible! And she did it all with ease, she isn’t flustered if she doesn’t know something, she finds a simpler way to say it right away.

Fantastic, thank you!

Tomislav, dad

Rewarding

Lucija is delighted, it was fantastic. She had a wonderful experience and outing. She enjoys English, and always wants to go. Her pronunciation is better than mine, and she also likes the option of attending classes virtually.

Robert, dad

 

Marko really looks forward to Saturdays because of English class, which just confirms our truly positive opinion of the school and all who work there. He loves his teacher. Hats off to her for the energy and diversity she brings to every class.

Jasminka, mom

Empowering

I’m incredibly satisfied with Marko’s progress. I could even say that he is equally shy in Croatian and English and he truly doesn’t have any problems using the language when he speaks and socializes with our friends who don’t speak Croatian. Also, his grades at school are excellent. Furthermore, I would like to mention the incredible professionalism from your team I have experienced as the mother of a learner. You truly provide a fantastic service to your learners, especially as far as monitoring progress and having an individualized approach to children goes, which we are especially grateful for. I truly consider classes for Marko at your center to be one of the best investments in my life.

Maruška, mom

Confidence boost

Ever since Petar has started attending Berlitz, everything he passively knew and learned at school for years just started coming out. It’s amazing, he speaks freely with no fear; incredible. Before, he didn’t even dare to start speaking with our friends who don’t understand Croatian, and now, after just one season, he actively uses everything he knows (and even experiments with things he doesn’t know).

Branko, dad

Flexibility

Thank you to his instructor for working with Tin, and for the beautiful comments on his progress! Tin is very satisfied with classes at Berlitz and will definitely continue to perfect his English at your center. I would like to thank everyone for managing to organize online classes in these challenging times so that our children can continue learning, even if it is at a distance. Although Tin misses in-person contact with his instructor and friends from the group, he is satisfied with the quality of online classes.

Alica, mom

Global skills

Thank you for the information regarding Iva’s progress in German and English. All the results are as expected. Iva is delighted with everything. We constantly hear praises about the instructors and the classes. Iva’s goal is to achieve the same level of success in learning German as she has with English. I think she’s on the right track, we have noticed a great difference in her German skills since she started working with you, and so we are truly satisfied.
