The Berlitz Method has been at the heart of all Berlitz language instruction since 1878. We have continued to develop our approach to keep pace with the latest educational principles. For example, today our methodology includes individual needs analysis and has been combined with digital media and our e-learning platform.

The Berlitz Method for Language Courses

What exactly is the Berlitz Method?

The Berlitz Method lets you approach a new language in a natural fashion. In other words, in your Berlitz course you only speak and hear your target language – which means you learn it as though you were in the country where the language is spoken. This immersive experience allows you to overcome any inhibitions about speaking and apply your new skills in everyday situations.

How is the Berlitz Method different from other ways of learning?

The Berlitz Method provides a systematic approach that focuses on meeting specific goals and draws on the latest findings and innovations in linguistic research. Our instructors also receive intensive training – in addition to special learning techniques, they apply methods that boost your self-confidence and motivation to learn a language, encourage you to speak, and keep a firm focus on your personal goals.

How do I learn grammar at Berlitz?

Grammar is always learned in a communication- and topic-based context and internalized through structured practice. Our trainers make certain to strike a balance between fluency and accuracy of expression.
