Why learn German?

German is estimated to be spoken by 100 million native speakers and by another 20 million non-native speakers. As one of the most popular languages spoken in Europe, German is one of the most important languages for business and travel.

Learning German can open up a world of possibilities and with Berlitz, our German classes are designed to not only make the language accessible to you but to make you comfortable using it in whatever capacity you need. Our immersive language learning techniques will allow you to begin using the language in your first lesson with a native-fluent German speaker. This approach gives you immediate feedback on both the language and the cultural aspects of using the language.

No matter why you want to learn German, Berlitz offers a German class for you. Our selection of German classes allow you to learn as fast or slow as you want, to customize the curriculum for your needs or to use our standard German curriculum and to choose from a pre-determined class schedule or schedule your own classes around your availability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Both our private and group classes are made up of 45-minute units, including a 5-minute break. Our students normally take two units at a time, so the minimal length of one session is 90 minutes (2 units) with breaks as needed.

Our international group classes (Berlitz Live Online) last either 60 or 90 minutes, depending on group size.

The coaching sessions that come with our Berlitz Flexible online courses are 25 minutes long.

The group workshops accessible from our Cyber Teachers student platform last 30 minutes each.

The time required to achieve the goals you set for yourself depends on your current level of competence and on the intensity of the course. So the answer to this question is determined through a free level test combined with a pre-enrollment consultation with our instructional specialist so you can be given a truly personalized offer.

Our instructors are native speakers or professionals that speak the target language at a native level. Many of our instructors have a background in business as well. Before they can teach our classes, all our instructors must pass our internal Berlitz Training course, where they learn the Berlitz method together with all the relevant course materials and class management techniques. Their work is regularly monitored by our chief instructional specialist.

We use our own self-developed general language and business materials, which are available both online and in paper-based print versions.

The course package contains the student book matching your skill level and interests as well as the audio recordings that come with the book.
