The Berlitz Methode® Learn quickly, with natural easeThe Berlitz Method® is a natural way to learn a new language. When it was introduced in 1878, this intuitive, conversational style of teaching revolutionized language instruction. Today, our proven, effective Berlitz direct method has become the industry standard for language instruction, and remains at the core of our company’s teaching approach.Talk and think in the new languageWith the Berlitz Method®, all communication during class takes place in the target language. Instructors are native speakers and use a conversational approach based on listening and speaking. An immersive environment encourages learners to quickly develop their skills in oral communication. Even beginners can formulate simple sentences from the very first lesson.Develop spontaneous responsesOur method was conceived to allow learners to speak - the rationale being that students will be able to work out grammatical rules from the input language provided, without necessarily being able to explain the rules overtly. Learners take on the new language the same way they did their first - with natural ease.Self-confidence when using the new languageAt the core of our method is maximized and active students’ participation. Only by speaking actively, learners will be able to communicate in the new language quickly. Our teachers are trained to create a positive and comfortable learning environment. They ensure that students feel confident, that the level is appropriate and that the atmosphere encourages communication. The 5 Key Principles of the Berlitz Method®1.
