The secret to language learning: immersion
Anyone has the ability to speak another language. Traditionally, the best way to learn was to move abroad and immerse yourself in a new language and culture, but that’s not always practical or affordable for many of us.
Our students tell us that learning with Berlitz is the next best thing to actually moving to a new country.
1. The most effective
Language learning with Berlitz is an immersive experience. The Berlitz Method was invented by our founder in 1878 and is still the most effective language learning technique used today.
Your lessons are conducted in the target language from day one and each activity focuses on a specific learning goal tailored to your needs.
Language is presented in the context of real-life situations, and rather than academic translations or grammar rules, no obscure phrases that aren’t useful in the real world.
Your instructor guides you through a process of practice and presentation to help you quickly absorb what you’ve learned and progress to the next level.
2. Fast and efficient results
Learning with Berlitz follows a cycle that ensures fast and efficient progress.
We start with an evaluation of your language goals and proficiency levels so that we can recommend the most effective program for you.
Throughout your program there are regular milestones where you can check to see if you’re on track and access any extra support you might need on your learning journey.
You will regularly measure your understanding and skills to see how you’ve progressed and when to move to the next level. We’ll even provide certification of your achievements!
Our approach ensures you are continuously improving and don’t get stuck along the way.
That means you spend less time learning your new language and more time doing what’s important to you - whether that’s running your business, spending time with your family or exploring new corners of the world.
3. The power of cultural understanding
The most powerful way to get the most out of a new language is to understand its culture.
Our learning activities include important cultural training that helps you use your new language skills in the right context.
From business meetings to social situations, we’ll teach you how to avoid those uncomfortable scenarios that can often occur between cultures.
Our Cultural Navigator tool will help you understand your cultural preferences and how they impact how you communicate with different cultures.
This combination of immersive language learning with cultural understanding is the closest experience to living and working in a new country.
