Language Courses for Children Ages 4 to 7
Discover Your World by Learning Another Language
CEFR level: pre-A1 – A2.1
Our program teaches students to describe the world around them in pace with their social development.
In Level 1, students start by learning to name the things they see around them at home and at kindergarten. They learn to express basic needs in short, simple sentences.
In Level 2, they progress to being able to ask and answer questions about likes and dislikes, give simple opinions and express their thoughts about familiar topics. They learn to recognize letters and numbers.
In Level 3, they start looking at the people living and working in the wider world. They develop the vocabulary to describe nature and culture in the world around them. There is also a focus on phonemic awareness as they develop writing skills.
AN ADVANTAGE AT SCHOOL
At Berlitz, we believe total immersion in a language is the most efficient way of learning a foreign language. Our instructors use fun stories, songs, and games to activate your child’s imagination, all while teaching them a foreign language the entire time. Early exposure to languages diminishes any insecurities they may have while speaking and prepares them for success at school and in life.
Constant exposure to a language means that your child will get a grasp of the language quicker and develop an understanding for other cultures. Moreover, our instructors adapt the content as the course takes place, all while using the most appropriate materials and content to find the little linguist within your child.
At Berlitz, we will give you and your child constant support with an all-encompassing network of resources in the classroom. The program is pure fun for all children, and as a parent you will be impressed with how much your child has advanced in a very short time.
We look forward to your inquiry!

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!
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
