Thank you to Berlitz Vancouver Language Centre for the hard work that has gone into helping me brush up on my French!
Jonathan Wilkinson (Member of Parliament)
Learning a language is not easy, but the Berlitz method has proven to be efficient and rewarding. The teachers are so patient and encouraging, they work so hard to see all their students succeed in communicating in the language they’re learning. The entire team at Berlitz are the most passionate and supportive group of people. Your success feels like their success. I would highly recommend Berlitz to anyone wanting to learn a new language in a safe and encouraging environment.
Athena Pantelis (Businesswoman)
Berlitz Study Abroad Program provided an excellent avenue for me to practice speaking English in a totally new environment. I was immersed in speaking only my target language and I had fun interacting with new friends and living independently. It was a bit challenging at first to speak only in English, but I soon got used to it and truly enjoyed it.
Haruhi Ota (Visiting teen student)
Berlitz Vancouver gave me a “dream-come-true” experience - the city, my homestay family, and my instructors provided me with a very comfortable and happy environment in which to study. I took a TOEIC exam after coming back to Japan, and my score far exceeded my goal. Thanks to the entire Berlitz team – I’ve gained confidence to speak the language fluently!
Midori Asaka (Visiting overseas student)
The choice of perfecting my English at Berlitz allowed to deepen my knowledge and especially to focus on what I lacked the most. I am satisfied and ready to face the labour market. Without the Berlitz Team it would not have been possible. The teachers are highly skilled, dedicated and always available to students. I am leaving this experience with great memories, satisfied and happy!
I appreciate having a conversation with a professional who helps improve my speaking and listening skills. Also, the extra tasks that have been assigned to me are very helpful. They are great for practicing my reading and writing skills.
