With our unique phonics method, we can teach your child to read and write English much faster than other programs available. We teach the 44 sounds of English and gradually introduce sight words and complex spellings at a pace that suits your child.
Working in partnership with National Geographic, we have created our own instructor guide to move through this material at an accelerated pace. With this program, your child begins to make connections between their lives and the wider world. Topics include school, family, food, animals, home, town, and space. It also includes confidence-boosting exam support your child needs to use English successfully in the 21st century.
Materials for other languages: Adomania (French), Beste Freunde (German), Espacio Joven (Spanish).
Berlitz Language Programs turn Learning Languages into a Daily Adventure
Children love to ask questions, explore and solve mysteries. Berlitz language programs are perfectly adapted to do what children do best: explore!
The programs are designed and completely adapted to children ages 8 to 11, and they form an imaginative environment where they feel free to discover the world around them.
They also stimulate the ability to communicate in the language they are learning. The natural tendency children have to ask questions becomes their greatest tool in Berlitz’s language programs. Our qualified instructors lead them on the path to discovery that is designed to engage and motivate them throughout the entire language learning experience.
The programs cover topics from geography to science and nature in order to bring the vocabulary and grammar of the language they are learning alive. Educational games and language-learning activities give children the chance to practice their listening and speaking skills.
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.
