Why learn French?
French is estimated to have 76 million native speakers and is an official language in 29 countries across multiple continents. The extensive reach of the language also makes it one of the most useful languages for business and travel.
The French classes with Berlitz will immerse you completely in the language and culture to ensure you will not only understand the language, but will be able to use it in any social, professional or academic setting. Whether you are looking to learn French for business, travel or just as a hobby, we can help you achieve your goals.
Berlitz offers a variety of French class options, including private French lessons, self-paced online French courses, group French lessons and much more. All French classes incorporate the core Berlitz language teaching methods and include some level of instructor-led live classes.
Learn French in-person
You can participate in our in-person classes at one of our Budapest language centers or, in the case of private classes, in your office at work or in the comfort of your home. Using the true and trusted Berlitz method, our native French-speaking instructors will encourage you to communicate in French naturally and instinctively from the very first day.
Private French classes
Our private students can decide what topics they would like to focus on in their courses. This targeted and highly customized approach ensures that you will learn the words and expressions necessary for your chosen focus whether it is business or travel.
Learning French in a small group will give you a chance to improve your language skills in a supportive and interactive environment. The Berlitz method is the corner stone of all of our instructional activities in all of our classes; its goal is to immerse the learner completely in the target language. The group setting provides perfect opportunities to practice your freshly acquired conversational skills.

Learning French on your own
In our online courses at Berlitz, you have the option to progress at your own speed, while getting the same level of support from our colleagues as you would in our in-class courses. Berlitz’s online platforms are accessible anywhere at any time where the internet is available. The activities and exercises are designed to be compatible with even the busiest of schedules.
French courses for children
Grant your child the opportunity to learn languages in a playful and natural way. Our French courses are available for children from age 7 to 17.
Private classes for children
For children, the Berlitz experience is totally different from what they are used to in their regular school environment. There is no pressure on the children here; they do not repeat rules endlessly.They learn through fun activities and receive plenty of positive reinforcement while becoming confident in their knowledge as well as improving their cognitive and social skills in the process.
Group classes for children
Learning in a group is a real social and community building experience. We think it is very important for our young students to explore the new language together with their peers and build real relationships as they are doing so. We are expecting students of ages 7 to 17 in our groups whose composition is determined by age and level of competence. You may choose a closed group, or you may enroll your child in an open group designed to complement his or her school schedule.
