“Give us a call.”
This is the advice Berlitz Manila has for anyone who is interested in knowing what they have to offer. And how fitting it is, really, for them to encourage their potential clients to talk to them directly rather than simply go online and Google them.
Learninglitz, Inc., more popularly known as Berlitz Manila, started operations in March 2002 in their first branch at the Peninsula Court, Makati. Employing mostly native speakers as their instructors, Berlitz initially offered language training. Due to high demand, they later started offering language evaluation and language translation as well. Berlitz caters to clients, adults and kids alike, who seek language improvement for both professional and personal reasons. Over the years, Berlitz has most definitely grown. It now houses its second branch in San Juan (opened November 2009). It also has a satellite branch in Shangri-La Mall, the result of their partnership with Edu-care Learning.
Communication is ultimately their business. But what makes their programs and services special, though, is that it can be customized based on your needs. Thinking of venturing into the call center industry, but feeling like you need to enhance your skills some more? Enroll in their Call Center Essentials program. Wanting to learn but having no time for face-to face lessons? Study with their Cyber Teachers program. Relocating to or visiting another country? Attend their cross cultural training or try their Traveler’s Guide. Thinking of touring the Philippines and wanting to learn more about their history? Try their Educational Tours.
CUSTOMIZED TO A T. Berlitz offers a wide selection of services. (Photo grabbed from Berlitz website.)
Then, there is the Berlitz Method, one of the company’s most prominent feature. This innovative way of learning a language lets you speak volumes on the first day of class. Interaction in the classroom between the instructor and the student is done purely in the target language, the language the student wants to learn. So, yes, expect a lot of big movements, illustrations on the board and encouraging smiles from the teachers during lessons!
Practice is very important to them as well, though.
“For Berlitz, it’s always the usage of the language,” said Michelle Hilvano, Berlitz Language Center Operations Manager. “Berlitz [is the clients’] jump-off point. [It is] practice outside the classroom and applying what they learn after [that matters more].”
So, if you would like to speak English or any other language effectively, Berlitz and their unique learning method are your best bet. Give them a call, indeed. Give them a call now.
