Method of Berlitz

Method of Berlitz

Method are different ways to learn a foreign language. Along with an increase in the importance of proficiency in languages other than learned from a child, also increased the pool of methods, schools and learning programs. One of the most interesting, and still little known in Poland is the Berlitza method.


It was established in the 19th century, and began with the experiment, the same Berlitza. As we know, necessity is the mother of invention, so it was in this case. Berlitz was a teacher of French, whose work at school was canceled. However, if you do not want to leave his disciples to himself the inventor of this method provide detailed instructions to your subordinate-Nicholasowi Joly. It soon turned out that communicating only in the (taught) French Joly, students began to quickly assimilate a valuable insight into this language.

So in brief it looks like this method: students speak only in English, you just know. With, initially, a simple refundable, mimicry and gesturing just break the psychological barrier of using foreign language. Gradually introduces the bigger resource words and phrases, which is explained by the previously known. In this way, not only expands the language field maneuver, but also perpetuates the met previously. This is another method that the emphasis is on communication skills. More important is the clear communication of information than the 100% correctness of grammar. Therefore, it is recommended to those who in the future will be to use the foreign language in the speech more often than in writing.

Of course, the course is divided into different groups depending on the progress of the (from the basic levels, by the conversation, until the experts). The same level of all members of the group here is the key issue, as the students learn a lot from each other. The effectiveness of this method is confirmed by numerous studies, well conducted group can make great strides in a short period of time. However, it seems that the most important thing here is to break the psychological barrier that allows the free use of language in the future, in situations of non-school (even if the student knows the very small group of simple phrases). The method Berlitza is so for all who need a foreign language primarily for communication, and have problems with the use of the acquired knowledge in situations (issue “unawares” by foreigner).

The main premise of the Berlitz Method ® is the communication that takes place from the very first lessons in the target language. Our teachers are native speakers who are engaging students for continuous speaking. Thus, already from the first lesson, students are able to formulate simple sentences in the language taught.

And how will we know what the US says language instructor?

Programs are logically structured. We go from easy and simple sentences in a foreign language, then we begin to construct them in ever more complex grammatical structures-pojeciowe. And all of this is presented to us on many of the examples and situational contexts. Not enough, that we understand perfectly what speaks to us even we start to use the foreign language in a grammar.


Speaking is essential!

Our method has been developed to allow learners to speak. Grammar is introduced by background and perpetuated based on examples of usage rules in real situations. Therefore, it is not the most important whether the students can explain the grammatical structures, but if they can be properly applied. Berlitz method is so natural, that when the course first results can be seen after just a few lessons. Fast learning for example. English does not mean fast pace made the material but the acquisition of foreign language skills and almost immediately.

Your confidence when you use a new language at the heart of our method is active participation during each lesson, because only in this way we are able to, in a quick way to begin to communicate in a new language. Our teachers are trained to create a conducive and comfortable conditions for learning. Ensure that students feel confident and the atmosphere to encourage communication.

And how will we know what the US says language instructor?

Programs are logically structured. We go from easy and simple sentences in a foreign language, then we begin to construct them in ever more complex grammatical structures-conceptual. And all of this is presented to us on many of the examples and situational contexts. Not enough, that we understand perfectly what speaks to us even we start to use the foreign language in a grammar.

Our instructors are native speakers-“native speakers”, and so the person for whom language is taught their native language or people who have language competence of native speakers. We are looking for teachers who speak perfectly and are very familiar with the realities of the culture of the country where this language is the language of force. The language you learn is so grammatically and contemporary use. We are also a good accent, correct intonation and language behavior specific to the community. This way we make sure that we understand what people say to us, and we understood.

Feature of the method is also changing language instructors during the entire program. We get used to the different accents, different people-as in life-after all, do not talk only with one person.

Disadvantages of Berlitza methods: • extremely marginalise “grammar language • may not be sufficient for people who will communicate language rather than in writing in speech • may discourage people whose visual teaching methods are an obstacle rather than to facilitate.
