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.
Learn German 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 instructors will encourage you to communicate in German naturally and instinctively from the very first day.
Private German 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 German 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.

German courses for children
Grant your child the opportunity to learn languages in a playful and natural way. Our German 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.
