Why learn Italian?
Italian is spoken by an estimated 70 million people worldwide. It is also the official language of Italy and San Marino, as well as Vatican City, which is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. Italy is a major tourist attraction, making Italian a great language to learn for any travel enthusiasts.
One of the Romance languages, Italian is a major language in Europe. When learning Italian, understanding the cultural implications of the language can be just as important as understanding the language itself. With the Berlitz Italian classes, you will learn these cultural aspects of using the language. These cultural lessons will allow you to use your Italian skills confidently with native speakers in business or social situations.
Berlitz Italian classes incorporate the Berlitz Method into every lesson. The Berlitz Method, which is based on immersive language learning, has been proven to be the fastest, most efficient way to learn Italian. Using this method, you will only speak Italian during your classes, which will be conducted by a Berlitz-certified native-fluent instructor.
These techniques are employed in every Berlitz Italian class. You will have the option to choose from both group and private Italian classes based on your timeline, budget and preferences, but you will enjoy the same language-learning methods regardless of the class type you choose.
Learn Italian 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 Italian-speaking instructors will encourage you to communicate in Italian naturally and instinctively from the very first day.
Private Italian 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 Italian 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.

Italian courses for children
Grant your child the opportunity to learn languages in a playful and natural way. Our Italian 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.
Contact us and book an appointment for a consultation during which one of our colleagues will assess your language skills and will design a course for your needs. This meeting is free of charge and carries no further obligation.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
