If you are working for a major multinational company, the chances are, your company has used Berlitz either here in Japan or in one of the other 60 countries where we have language centers. Berlitz has been helping international companies with their language training requirements since 1878.
Berlitz incorporates teaching materials ranging from a complete beginner level to advanced, from business settings to social situations. All of the teaching materials aim to teach primarily speaking and listening skills. These comprehensive materials are progressively sequenced so that your skills develop gradually and naturally. You will learn the essential elements first, and then move to more advanced structures.
Berlitz takes ultimate care when selecting instructors and in training the Berlitz Method®. We have years of experience teaching executives and expatriates.
The Berlitz Method®, developed by Maximilian Berlitz in 1878, is designed to teach you a new language the same way you acquired your mother tongue - naturally - through conversation. It's a fun and interactive way to learn a new language. Here is a brief explanation:
- Avoid memorizing vocabulary or conjugating verbs
- Forget about having to memorize vocabulary or conjugate verbs in a Berlitz setting. From the moment the lesson begins, you will only hear the language you're learning. This direct method of language acquisition enables you to learn vocabulary and grammar as they occur in their proper context - while hearing and speaking only the language you're studying.
- Begin to think in your new language fast
- It's fast, effective and fun. You quickly begin to think in your new language under the guidance of our instructors - instructors who are dynamic, who keep you engaged in lively dialogues and who present material in the most effective ways possible. It's completely different from any language instruction you may have experienced before!
Every Berlitz program begins with a consultation. We will first listen to your goals and objectives. Then we will design a program to fit your needs, your schedule, and current skill level. The best part is that the consultation is free of charge and with no obligation.
With Berlitz you will retain the flexibility that a business person needs. You can change your lesson time depending on your business demands.
Private lessons allow you to speak as much as possible during your class. You can progress according to your own pace and can concentrate on the points most important to you.
Total Immersion® was invented by Berlitz. This is the most effective program to develop your Japanese in just a few short weeks.
