The Berlitz Method takes a natural approach to teaching you a new language. In short, you only speak and hear the foreign language in your Berlitz course – and thus learn as if you were abroad. This immersion allows you to overcome your language inhibitions and apply the newly acquired skills directly in everyday life.
The Berlitz Method offers a systematic approach based on achieving goals as well as the latest findings and innovations in language research. Our trainers also undergo intensive training: in addition to special learning techniques, they use methods designed to boost your confidence, promote your motivation for learning languages and speaking, and focus on your personal goals.
Grammar is always learned in a linguistic and thematic context and internalized through structured application. Our trainers ensure a balance between fluent speaking and precision.
Yes! To best prepare you for real and authentic situations, Berlitz trainers teach in their own native language.
We work with you to create your individual training program based on a personal requirements analysis and language level. Taking into account your existing knowledge and your language goals, together we develop a course plan, prepare content that meets your needs, and define course goals based on your specific career or personal requirements. Your learning success is continuously assessed throughout your training course.
Berlitz trainers have comprehensive didactic skills that allow you to actively use the language in authentic everyday situations and simulations with confidence and enjoyment. You’re continuously included during class and encouraged to speak independently and ask questions. At the same time, you won’t feel overwhelmed or insufficiently challenged. In other words, you’re always included in accordance with your level of knowledge.
It’s well known that speaking with confidence is the hardest part about learning a new language. We ensure that you’re able to both understand and actively communicate in your desired language.
There’s no need to worry. Our entire learning strategy focuses on allowing you to speak the foreign language with confidence and enjoyment. Our trainers promote a safe and relaxing learning atmosphere, as no one is born a master. Regardless of your level of knowledge, we also provide plenty of encouragement and positive feedback to ensure that you develop confidence in your language skills in no time.
Our trainers are well trained to teach you the new language step by step in a highly demonstrative way. In the beginning, clear, simple body language and easy-to-understand visual aids are used so that you can delve into your desired language from the first moment. You’re therefore sure to find that speaking yourself is a piece of cake the moment you begin. This process will boost your confidence to communicate in the foreign language from the very start.
Yes, short reading and writing exercises based on your individual learning goals are used to complement the course. These tasks are usually then followed again by oral exercises to further train your interactive language skills.
Of course! We always take your individual learning style into account. While the lack of printed materials promotes natural development in oral communication, the training also includes visual forms of support as well as writing in the foreign language. Following class with your trainer, the Berlitz materials will provide you with the content in written form, including lots of exercises, so that you can work through what you’ve learned again and internalize it.
Once you sign up for a Berlitz language course, we will assess your language proficiency and indicate the right language program for your needs and goals. Prior to the course, you can also test your current language level with our online placement test which is available in English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish.
