THE BERLITZ METHOD
Our direct method has been at the heart of all Berlitz language instruction since 1878. We have continued to develop our approach to keep pace with the latest educational principles. For example, today our methodology includes an individual needs analysis and has been combined with digital media and our e-learning platform.
- Your experience and needs are incorporated into our instruction.
- Our primary focus lies on active speaking. This will automatically help you overcome any inhibitions about speaking, improve your fluency, and boost your motivation.
- You learn grammar naturally based on the situation – the same way that you learned your native language and you experience a foreign language when abroad.
- Listening, reading, writing, and speaking. At Berlitz, you learn with all the senses. And since the language is
taught using everyday situations, you learn more quickly and better retain what you have learned.
- A positive learning environment allays fears about speaking in public. Small groups, expert and motivational
teachers, and a welcoming ambiance play a major part in your success.
