Berlitz offers a fast, effective way to learn a new language - with the cultural understanding to get the most out of these new skills.
With flexible learning options and customized learning programs, you’ll gain the skills and confidence to start speaking a new language right away.
The secret to language learning: immersion
Anyone has the ability to speak another language. Traditionally, the best way to learn was to move abroad and immerse yourself in a new language and culture, but that’s not always practical or affordable for many of us.
Our students tell us that learning with Berlitz is the next best thing to actually moving to a new country. With Berlitz, you will be fully immersed in the language. This means you will only speak in the target language. It is an experience that simulates what it would be like to move abroad. During lessons, you will also learn important cultural lessons that will allow you to use your new language skills with confidence.
1. The most effective method
Language learning with Berlitz is an immersive experience.* The Berlitz Method was invented by our founder in 1878 and is still the most effective language learning technique used today.
Your lessons are conducted in the target language from day one and each activity focuses on a specific learning goal tailored to your needs.
Language is presented in the context of real-life situations, and rather than academic translations or grammar rules, we focus on the language skills you will need to navigate daily interactions. This allows you to gain confidence in actually using the language, rather than focusing on non-speaking skills.
Your instructor guides you through a process of practice and presentation to help you quickly absorb what you’ve learned and progress to the next level.
2. Fast and efficient results
Learning with Berlitz follows a cycle that ensures fast and efficient progress.**
We start with an evaluation of your language goals and proficiency levels so that we can recommend the most effective program for you.
Throughout your program, there are regular milestones where you can check to see if you’re on track and access any extra support you might need on your learning journey.
You will regularly measure your understanding and skills to see how you’ve progressed and when to move to the next level. We’ll even provide certification of your achievements!
Our approach ensures you are continuously improving and don’t get stuck along the way.
That means you spend less time learning your new language and more time doing what’s important to you - whether that’s running your business, spending time with your family or exploring new corners of the world.
3. The power of cultural understanding
The most powerful way to get the most out of a new language is to understand its culture.
Our learning activities include important cultural training that helps you use your new language skills in the right context. This includes non-verbal communication, traditions and history. In many respects, these lessons can be just as important as understanding the language itself.
From business meetings to social situations, we’ll teach you how to avoid those uncomfortable scenarios that can often occur between cultures.
Our Cultural Navigator tool will help you understand your cultural preferences and how they impact how you communicate with different cultures.
This combination of immersive language learning with cultural understanding is the closest experience to living and working in a new country.
