THE UNIQUE BERLITZ METHOD®
Language learning in an active and natural way
The Berlitz Method® is one of the most effective ways to learn a new language successfully and enjoyably since 1878. No matter how old or young, whether it’s for private or professional purposes – language students all over the world love it. This intuitive and conversational style of teaching has not only revolutionized language instruction but has become the industry standard for language acquisition, and remains at the core of our company’s teaching approach.
Optimum conditions for your personal language success
In a Berlitz language program, we never expect too much or too little from you. During a personal consultation, we determine your learning goals in advance and evaluate your foreign language skills in accordance with the ten Berlitz levels. Our trainers involve you actively in the course based on your personal foreign language skills. This ensures high motivation and rapid progress.
Speaking and thinking in the new language
When you learn with the Berlitz Method®, you can count on lively dialogues. The lessons take place exclusively in the target language and only with native-speaking trainers. This active use means you immerse yourself in the new language. You make much faster progress than with bilingual teaching and build up the self-confidence to communicate in the foreign language free of inhibitions.
Learning grammar actively along the way
Our language coaches correct your grammar in a way that ensures a balance between accuracy and fluent communication. Rather than wrestling with dry grammar exercises, you practice the usage by actively speaking and learn the correct forms “in passing “.
With the Berlitz Method®, you learn the language just as you learned your native tongue: in a perfectly natural way.
