Berlitz Method

The Berlitz Method, which has been innovated for over 140 years and has become the academic foundation of many foreign language education companies and institutions, is the fastest and most effective way to learn a new language.

Origins of the Berlitz Method

Like other great inventions made by chance, the Berlitz Method was born by chance.

It was when Maximilian Berlitz , the founder of the Berlitz Method, was working as an educator in Providence , USA . He needed an assistant, and he hired Joly , a young Frenchman . However, it wasn't until Joly arrived in the US that he discovered he couldn't speak a word of English.

At the time, Berlitz was in very poor health, which forced him to ask Joly for lessons temporarily, crying and eating mustard. As Joly did not speak English, he taught the American students in French, but he made the best use of gestures and verbal nuances.

When Berlitz returned to teaching six weeks later , he predicted that his students would be lagging behind. However, contrary to expectations, the students perfectly mastered French and actively interacted with Joly.

In a French-only environment, students' language skills grew rapidly, and this led Berlitz to create an innovation called the Berlitz teaching method after numerous studies.

Current Berlitz Method
The Berlitz Method continues to research and develop its core elements, and is still evaluated as a global standard for foreign language education around the world.
Key Elements of the Berlitz Method
  • Immersive Education: All communication during class is in the target language, not in the mother tongue. All instructors are native speakers and use a conversational (conversational) approach to instruction, based on listening and speaking. In addition, it is based on the theoretical basis that grammar rules can be found from conversations between instructors or students even if grammar rules are not explicitly explained. Learners can easily acquire a new language in a natural way and develop their communication skills quickly.
  • PPP Cycle: In order to learn a new language effectively, classes follow the structure of Presentation  Practice  Performance . New learning content is presented by the instructor , learners practice the content with the instructor, and then put the learned content into practice on their own.
