Berlitz used to be the top service provider for wealthy families and corporate executives in search of language training. That business model with main focus on “serious learners” was a success story for Berlitz for several decades. Today’s Berlitz management wants to enlarge the traditional target public to those learners who learn for fun and who can’t afford to put 3.000,00 € on the table to improve their language competency.
As per mid-August 2018, Berlitz in Brussels launches day and evening group language courses at very affordable prices. For only 390,00 € excl. VAT, Berlitz learners have access to 5 weeks of intensive group instruction following the effective-proven Berlitz method. The price includes the Berlitz instruction, digital course materials and registration fees. The course takes place twice a week following a fixed schedule.
Serious and fun learners will now meet at the fully renovated and comfortable Berlitz Brussels language center in small group settings that start every six weeks. In order to continue guaranteeing a high quality course with main focus on active learner participation and interactive conversation, groups require a minimum of 3 students to launch, with 9 being the maximum number of participants.
The offer is valid during day time and in evenings in order to reach as many potential learners as possible. During the day three time slots are offered, and in the evening 2 time slots are available. For those who would like to benefit from lunch break to improve their language proficiency, Berlitz offers an option between 12pm and 2.15pm. The course takes place twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays or on Tuesdays and Fridays.
What can learners achieve with one 5 weeks course? The course is pre-paced which allows learners to seamless move from one course to another without any language gap. Extension activities are proposed to groups that might progress even faster than the average pace. Half a Common European Framework level is the goal to be achieved per 5 weeks course. Total beginners are offered to achieve a real and effective conversational level in less than half a year for only 1.560,00 € excl. VAT. The new Berlitz offering is launched via a separate e-commerce platform:
The platform offers many customer-friendly features like easy online booking, email notifications, calendar synchronization, SMS reminders, and much more to come.
So, get to it: finally, there are affordable, high quality Berlitz courses!
