Study a language online, at your own pace

Berlitz’ online language courses give you the best of both worlds: the ability to study at your own pace, and the full support and motivation of a qualified instructor.

Why choose Berlitz online self-paced study program?

You’re in the driver’s seat

  • With 24/7 access to your learning, from any device, anywhere, you can control when and where you learn, at a pace that matches your goals.
  • Only have 15 minutes in between meetings? That’s not a problem. Lessons are broken up into bite-sized sessions, so you can learn whenever you have a free moment.

Real-world conversations

  • When you study a language online with Berlitz, you have loads of opportunities to practice in conversation with real people, in real-time, with instant feedback.
  • Our self-paced language courses include up to 20 one-on-one sessions with Berlitz instructors, via Skype or video call. These 30-minute sessions provide a golden opportunity to ask questions, seek guidance, target specifics, and get a deeper understanding of the nuances of your chosen language.
  • Having an in-language conversation with a fluent instructor is also a great chance to practice what you’ve learned and get immediate feedback on your progress.

Learn what interests you

  • We know that you learn faster and more easily when you are interested in the subject. That’s why at Berlitz, you learn through interactive activities and videos based on topics you select that interest you.
  • Just because you study a language online, does not mean you miss out on immersive learning. Your lessons use technology including voice recognition and interactive videos to fully engage you throughout your learning journey.

It’s all about you: personalized learning
