Every employee plays an important role in delivering excellent customer service and maintaining the
highest quality standards of instruction.

Berlitz Instruction - The Berlitz Method

The world-famous Berlitz Method is at the heart of all Berlitz language instruction. The Berlitz Method
today continues to focus on using language as a tool for communication, just as it did when Maximilian
Berlitz first developed it in 1878. He helped revolutionize learning by introducing one of the first forms
of the "direct method", which was based upon the "Natural Method". The main principle behind these
methods is that all instruction is given in the target language.

Translation is eliminated entirely so that the student learns to speak without hesitation and begins to
think only in his or her new language. To speed of learning a spoken language is increased if the
laborious mental process of translation is avoided. We teach the student to think in the language,
helping to make speaking a reflex action.

Additionally, the Berlitz Method has always presented language in context of real-life situations, with
extra targeted practice of grammar and vocabulary. Today, there are a variety of derivative methods and
theories which find their beginnings in the natural and communicative elements that were pioneered by
Berlitz.

With this communicative approach to language learning, Berlitz students learn through listening and
speaking, supported by reading and writing. They learn grammar as a means of communication. Their
needs and interests are central to our instruction. The Berlitz Method uses a variety of instruction
techniques which address different learning styles and maintains a balance between fluency and

accuracy that is consistent with the needs of each student. To ensure that our students reach their
language learning goals, Berlitz provides professional guidance on learning strategies and focuses on
motivating students to actively participate in the learning process.

Berlitz Teacher
All Berlitz instructors are native-fluent and have a minimum of a university degree. More importantly,
all must successfully complete pre-employment training in the Berlitz Method. Supplemental training
remains an ongoing process throughout a teacher's tenure with Berlitz to constantly update them on
material and techniques particular to the needs of our students.

English for life


BerlitzEnglish lessons assume daily life and business situations, and include not only role-playing but also
self-introduction with name-cards, ordering meals, and other useful and practical English.

8, Topic Based Levels


Topics such as self introduction, appointments and shopping form an integral part of the Berlitz material
with the topics in each level becoming more complex. Intermediate level students can also choose to
focus on business or social English.

Each theme is studied in detail and practiced for practical use in daily life and business situations. This
step by step approach ensures that students acquire usable communication skills.

Whats Different about Berlitz?

1. The Berlitz Method

At Berlitz, we teach your new language very similar to the way you learned your
first language. It differs, however, in the curriculum is sequenced and structure to
make it possible for adults to assimilate a new language in the shortest amount of
time possible. Our expertise in the field of teaching languages has been proven
effective for more than 120 years. Our students tell us that they learn effectively
and they learn quickly.

Instruction is given solely in the target language and in environment where


students actively use the new language learnt and relate it to real life
immediately. Students are exposed to the target language directly, without
translation to their native tongue. They are given basic structures and vocabulary
to begin with through pictures and actions. These are then practiced thoroughly
to form a sound base upon which to introduce more complex grammar and
vocabulary which are then actively used by the students.

Four important features of our method are:

Instruction is 100% live. We dont use time consuming, quality diluting gadgets
or gimmicks which can slow the learning process. At Berlitz the curriculum is
founded on an effective, time-tested, conversational learning approach. To
teach practical spoken skills, the Berlitz Method is second to none.

No translation. Translation is eliminated entirely so that the student learns to


speak without hesitation and begins to think only in his or her new language.
The speed of learning a spoken language is increased if the laborious mental
process translation is avoided. We teach the student to think in the language,
helping to make speaking a reflex action.

Native instructors Berlitz instructor are fully trained in the Berlitz Method. Each
will be teaching in his or her native tongue, with the authority and assurance
that cannot be approached by someone teaching with second language
ability. Of course, this means that the student will learn the spoken language
and not stilted textbook approximation.

New vocabulary, structures, phrases and expressions are taught in a natural


progression. Skills are expanded progressively, building upon previous
conversations mastered through practice. Oral and aural proficiency is
developed by teaching the most frequently used aspects of the language
amenable to the background and needs of the student.

2. Centralized Quality Control

The Berlitz Language Center Director and Pedagogical Supervisors are ultimately
responsible for all instruction. They monitor student progress and serve as general
advisors. To ensure Berlitz is on target with meeting needs and expectations, they
also issue progress reports, which are then discussed with students, advising them
of their strengths and weaknesses and assisting them to better understand the
process of language learning.

3. Instructors

All Berlitz instructors are native-fluent and have a minimum of a university degree.
More importantly, all must successfully complete pre-employment training in the
Berlitz Method. Supplemental training remains an ongoing proves throughout a
instructors tenure with Berlitz to constantly update them on material and
techniques particular to the needs of our students. Students learn the new
language in the way it is spoken today. They learn proper pronunciation and
natural, correct grammar, so they can understand their new language and are
understood by their colleagues abroad.

Instructors are changed from time to time, giving the student the opportunity to
learn to understand various speech patterns, accents and voices.

4. Materials

The single greatest advantage to learning a new language is the amount of time
the student has to speaking the language with other native-fluent speakers. As a
complement to the exposure the student has in the Berlitz lesson, we have
supplemental material, depending on the students level, designed to reinforce
what has already been learned in class.
