Frequently asked questions
Why choose Berlitz?
With its brand established through 130 years of experience across a global workforce, Berlitz has long led the language service market, offering a wide array of language courses. When it was introduced in 1878, the Berlitz Method® changed the way language was taught, and it helped millions of men and women speak new languages and countless business professionals cross cultural boundaries to communicate more effectively with others. If your goal is to improve your language skills in an enjoyable and goal-oriented way, Berlitz is the perfect solution.
How long is one Berlitz course?
At Berlitz, to complete one Berlitz level, students on average take 50 units with 40 minutes of instruction-time.
If you take the most intensive form of individual training, Berlitz Total Immersion®, you can complete one Berlitz level in 5 days. If you take one-on-one private lessons or small group lessons, you will spend one to three months to complete a course.
To maximize learning, students benefit from two to three consecutive course periods in 6 months.
What is the Berlitz Method®, and how is it different from my prior language-learning experience?
The Berlitz Method® is a highly effective, conversational approach to learning. It brings life to learning a language, takes the “pain” out of learning, and makes it an enjoyable and gratifying experience.
Berlitz classes focus on helping students to acquire active listening and speaking skills in a foreign language. Through interactive practice, role plays and realistic simulations, Berlitz instructors emphasize practical vocabulary and grammar in the context of real-life situations and facilitate the development of your intellectual and physical memories that are critical to acquiring oral skills.
Can I request a specific instructor?
To enrich your learning experience with Berlitz, we believe that it is essential for you to work with multiple teachers to experience various speech patterns and accents.
Through exposure to a variety of teachers, you can acquire correct pronunciation, the latest idioms and expressions from different regions of the world, and can learn to understand diverse intonations and expressions, avoiding the typical syndrome of understanding only one teacher.
How can I determine my current proficiency level?
If you are not a beginner, we will arrange a free assessment and personal placement interview for you to test your language skills at a Berlitz language center of your choice.
The assessment will take 20 to 30 minutes, dependent upon your level.
Can Berlitz send instructors to my office or community for language courses?
We can deliver training in students’ offices or communities,based on the requirements and the availability of our instructors. (All of the on-site courses have a fixed schedule.) Berlitz also offers a unique web-based language program that features interactive instructor-led live learning via the Internet.
If I am unable to complete the language courses, can I drop out?
With over 500 locations in more than 70 countries worldwide, Berlitz can help you transfer unfinished courses abroad if you are immigrating or relocating to another counrtry. (Due to different standards of living, tuition fees will be adjusted accordingly.)
Before you consider dropping out for any reason, please contact Berlitz and speak with the Instructional Supervisor or your Berlitz representative for the Berlitz Refund and Cancellation Policy.
