TIME TO TALK
Do you struggle to keep up with the conversation in a second language?
Improving your language skills is an on-going exercise needing continuous practice, determination and attention. Whether you’re an expat who has recently relocated to Belgium, a professional working in a second language or a business owner dealing with foreign clients; you face similar communication and comprehension challenges.
You get lost in conversations with more than one person; so you smile and nod and pretend to understand
You lack the confidence to voice your thoughts at work; so you stay silent and your ideas and opinions are wasted
You struggle to keep up with the conversation at social gatherings; so you get anxious, nervous and embarrassed
You’re fearful of speaking up in case you make a mistake and look foolish in front of co-workers, clients or friends
The worst part is if you can’t accurately convey your thoughts, you can’t show your true value to your employer; meaning you may be overlooked when it comes to career advancement opportunities.
It’s no secret that people who possess multilingual skills have an advantage in the workplace with higher chances of qualifying for a salary increase, securing a promotion or chances to work on international projects.
If this sounds all too familiar, Time To Talk is the perfect language course if you want to improve your conversational skills, comprehension and pronunciation; while boosting your confidence and unlocking new career possibilities.
Language learning in groups
Developing your language skills in a group setting is a proven method to make significant progress in a short space of time. Not only will you improve your comprehension and communication skills, but using role-playing exercises in real-life scenarios with your fellow students, you will be able to immediately apply what you have learned in the real world.
Total immersion with the Berlitz Method®
At the heart of the Berlitz Method®, is total immersion in your target language which means a laser-focus on speaking, comprehension and conversational skills. Our method differs from most other language courses which use obsolete rote learning tasks, tedious grammar exercises and dull written assignments.
Our unique approach means you will immediately learn to think and speak in your target language. After your first few lessons, your confidence will increase––banishing the inhibitions and anxieties that were holding you back––and you will be able to speak clearly while understanding the conversation around you.
