The secret to language learning: immersion

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.

1. The most effective

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.

Sprachkurse werden ab dem ersten Tag in der Zielsprache unterrichtet und jede Aktivität konzentriert sich auf ein spezifisches Lernziel, welches auf Ihre Bedürfnisse zugeschnitten ist. Anstatt akademische Übersetzungen zu verwenden, die mit Grammatikregeln gefüllt sind, oder obskure Sätze lernen zu müssen, die in der realen Welt nicht nützlich sind, wird die Sprache im Kontext alltäglicher Situationen geübt.

Ihr Berlitz Lehrer begleitet Sie während des gesamten Lernprozesses und sorgt dafür, dass Sie das Gelernte schnell verarbeiten und in die nächste Stufe aufsteigen können.

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.

We 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.

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.

4. Learn your own way

All our instructors are passionate and dedicated to helping you improve your language skills.

You can learn anytime, anywhere through our online learning platform, with lessons delivered in real-time. You can also practice on your own with our online self-study options.

Prefer to learn in-person? You can schedule your lessons at any of our 500+ language centers around the world or at countless other flexible learning spaces. We’ll even come to your workplace or other location that works for you.

Looking for training programs for business? We provide customized solutions for corporate executives through to global corporations.

No matter what option you choose, your program will be fully customized to your goals, situation and learning style.

What else can I learn with Berlitz?

In addition to our language instruction, you can take advantage of our intercultural courses and business and management seminars. Of course you can also connect the dots between these three skill areas. For example, have you taken an international assignment in Japan and need a language course as well as intercultural training? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

In our language courses, you learn more than just new vocabulary. After all, we take great pride in offering a holistic approach. This means we also provide a cultural context and apply psychological research findings to ensure effective language learning. So you’ll not only feel at home speaking the language, but you’ll also feel comfortable in the new culture as well – and of course you’ll always have access to the best learning strategies.

What other advantages does Berlitz offer?

Berlitz has a global network of 450 language schools in 70 countries. You’ll enjoy the same high standards at every one of our centers. No matter if you start with a language course in Munich and continue in Paris, or if you’re a manager who wants to provide the same training to your colleagues in New York and in Japan – thanks to our global network, we can guarantee that exactly the same language courses are offered at all our locations. And whether you prefer face-to-face instruction or learning completely or partially online, Berlitz offers you a broad range of onsite, online, or blended learning solutions, providing you with the best opportunities for learning success.
