Berlitz offers particularly effective foreign language training
with Total Immersion®
A job opportunity abroad sounds enticing for managers - but unfortunately there is still one hurdle to overcome beforehand: they need to brush up on their English skills, fast. Berlitz offers a special program for this: Total Immersion®. As the name implies, the language course participant is completely immersed in a language for a lengthy period of time: for at least five days, but also longer if required. 12 lessons take place every day in the form of individual instruction with native speakers. Also part of the concept: lunch with the language instructor, during which, of course, all communication also only takes place in the foreign language. In order to practice group situations, another trainer also joins in for one language lesson every day. "As Total Immersion® involves individual instruction, the language course participant spends 50% of their time speaking. They are also constantly working with the new language for the rest of the time by listening to and interacting with the trainer, or completing written tasks. This methodological approach enables us to guarantee rapid learning success and, above all, to train speaking skills. This can lead to communicating at a high level in both professional and private situations within weeks", explains Managing Director Annette Fuchs. Total Immersion® can be booked for all popular languages on an individual basis and is primarily aimed at specialists and managers who are going abroad or have frequent contact with international partners. Participants set the start date for their individual course themselves. They can choose whether they want to take the whole course in Germany, or take part of it at a Berlitz language center abroad. Berlitz has over 550 language centers in over 70 countries.
Special offer to mark the 130th anniversary of Berlitz
Berlitz is celebrating its 130th anniversary this year. To mark this occasion, Berlitz has special offers on its courses: from September 15 to October 31, the 5-day Total Immersion® course will be offered at the price of four days. "Demand for short, compact intensive courses is very high, as specialists and managers in particular have less and less time to devote to gaining additional qualifications. We accommodated this ongoing trend long before it arose by launching the Total Immersion® brand in 1964", explains Annette Fuchs. Those opting for the Total Immersion® special offer can save 20 per cent on the normal course fees.
