Learning to speak Japanese can unlock a world of possibilities in business, travel and socially. Berlitz Japanese classes will teach you not only the fundamental language skills you will need, but also the cultural aspects of using the language. With the combination of these skills, you will be able to feel comfortable and confident speaking Japanese in any situation.

Berlitz employs our immersive language Berlitz Method in all of our Japanese classes. What this means is that you will begin speaking Japanese on day one and will only speak Japanese in class. This immersion in the language with a Berlitz-certified native-fluent instructor has been proven to be the fastest, most effective language learning technique. You will learn firsthand how to use the language and will have the benefit of a native-fluent instructor who will give you feedback immediately. The interaction with your instructor also gives you an opportunity of customizing some of the course material to your specific goals and needs.

Berlitz provides a variety of Japanese lesson types. From private lessons to group classes, we have a solution for every language learner. Whether you want to learn Japanese for an upcoming trip or for business purposes, we can help.
