I have been learning German at Berlitz for about 6 months now after spending 2 years trying with Duolingo. I have found that my pronunciation has improved immensely and i have finally started to understand some of the paterns in the language. The staff are very friendly and the instructors are native speakers. It is not cheap, but it is great value for money.
I highly recommend Berlitz Vancouver if you are interested in learning a new language. I have been studying German and find the program engaging and helpful. The staff and instructors at Berlitz Vancouver are amazing and the flexibility of the program is great if you have a busy schedule or are a working professional.
Good teachers, friendly staff. Accelerated my learning experience in a practical way with native speakers. Aprendí español! Great place to learn a language with friendly staff.
For two months I followed individual lessons at Berlitz to improve my English for my new (and challenging) tasks in Vancouver. I enjoyed every single lesson very much because of the extensive knowledge, kindness and enthusiasm of my teachers. My English improved clearly and I feel much more comfortable when I am speaking, also in formal situations. I highly recommend Berlitz with great teachers, a superkind and helpful team and a program which really works. Thank you very much, Berlitz Vancouver!

If you have no time and want to learn a language in a hurry, I highly recommend their immersion program. I saw a Berlitz ad that said "learn a language in five days!" and despite the fact that this sounds like a crazy idea, I decided that since I happen to have five days off, I'd try to learn German. I just finished 40 lessons in one week and am very happy with my progress. I have never learned German before, but after this week, I'm sure my German is better than my Russian, which I had spent almost two years learning in university and in traditional language classes. There is no comparison between speaking a foreign language with a roomful other learners who also don't speak the language and speaking with native speakers who are completely focussed on my learning. The Berlitz immersion program was totally worth it. All three teachers I had were knowledgeable, focussed, and friendly, and all the staff were solicitous and helpful. I'll probably go back for more.
I joined Berlitz Study Abroad program and I spent one week at Berlitz Vancouver. Although it was a week (rather 4 days actually), I had a lot of fun and it was fulfilling. When I was in Japan, I didn’t have any opportunities to speak English other than at Berlitz schools. During my week in Vancouver language centre, I was immersed in English and I felt that my English has improved.
All the teachers are friendly. They gave me a guided tour of downtown Vancouver, that was a very good memory.
Next time, I will stay longer in Summer time.
I’m really thankful to you!!
I have been doing German lessons for a month and thanks to my teachers motivation I feel way more confident and fluent. Staff is super friendly and helpful, everyone in Berlitz is so kind and I really really appreciate what they're doing to help me reach my goal.
In the last day of the month August 2018, I finished and passed the French test level 1 at Berlitz. I want to thank everyone for everything you’ve done. Special thanks to my teachers, Samuel and Ofelia, who supported me to understand and study French. Thanks Berlitz’s staffs for being so nice and friendly. You helped me to enjoy my Summer Break in studying new language. This sets my steps in studying and improving my French Speaking progress. Hopefully, I could be able to again study here as long as my schedule are not busy at University. If not, I also try my best to keep reviewing and improving it.
Thank you to Berlitz Vancouver Language Centre for the hard work that has gone into helping me brush up on my French!

I have had various part-time French language instruction over several years and had reached a plateau in my oral proficiency. However, the Berlitz Executive Total Immersion program boosted my fluency and confidence. The various instructors provided an enriching experience as we worked through the chapter themes, and they modeled how to build on another's conversational input. They demonstrated how to sustain a conversation in the target language. The instructors were also able to explain nuances and complexities of the language in a vibrant manner. By the end of the program, I felt that the French language was much more accessible to me, and that I could continue to build my skills. The Toronto Language Centre was very professional in their program oversight, and set a welcoming tone. Thank you, Berlitz!
I have been receiving excellent service since the start from every one of the employees I have dealt with which speaks well of the leadership and culture at Berlitz. I have been a client of Berlitz since 2013. Actually, truth be known I used your services back in 1979...dictionary and phrase book to learn enough Finnish to permit me to work in Finland that summer as a geologist.
I have been using your services in Spanish since August 2013 in order to continue my learnings in Spanish. I took an intensive course in Montreal, then your online course and then Cyberteachers tutoring sessions which I buy ten at a time. I wanted you to know that I have been dealing with Tomoko Mikuriya of Berlitz Vancouver for a few years now and have found her to be so helpful. She is very quick in responding to my emails, very friendly and very efficient. She is a great ambassador for the Berlitz brand and you should be proud to have her on board.
I also wanted to also mention my tutor Alvaro Cucalon from Colombia whom I really appreciate. He also is also a reason I keep using your services. He is a true gentleman and very knowledgeable in just about every topic you can imagine. I always enjoy talking with him.

Berlitz Vancouver is a wonderful place to study a new language! All the staff there are working in unison to create a welcoming, relaxing, and successful learning atmosphere. It is so refreshing to interact with committed instructors and dedicated support staff, as intimidating as it may be to take on a new language, I honestly look forward to being there for each and every class. I highly recommend it to anyone considering language services, you won't regret it!
Despite the price, it's so worth it. Best language school you can get.
The staff is exceptional and I attribute that to Jacquelyn Sy who has clearly hand-picked everyone there. My daughter and I had been studying there for months when we experienced a very distressing family situation that interrupted our studies. The staff were all aware of our situation and to a person gently, kindly, and generously adapted to our change in routine. Berlitz is now more than a stellar place to learn a language as the process of learning has become the hours in a week that I really look forward to.

I enjoyed learning and speaking English at Berlitz Vancouver. At first, I was a little afraid of talking to someone in English. I had more speaking time here than at my previous school in Vancouver. After finishing all my lessons, I am now able to enjoy talking in English. Thank you, Berlitz Vancouver!!
Awesome Berlitz!!! I'm from Japan and I had studied English at other schools in downtown Vancouver before enrolling at Berlitz. In the other school, I did not have the chance to ask questions coz there were over 15 people in class. But here, I feel comfortable because the teacher is very kind and takes care of each student's needs. I recommend this school to someone who wants to learn English seriously and who want to get the knowledge and confidence to speak English.
Berlitz Vancouver is a wonderful place for learning English. I am from China and my friend and I had studied at Berlitz Vancouver Learning center for two weeks. I highly recommend that you study there if you really want to improve your English level in an efficient way The teachers at Berlitz Vancouver are so professional and nice, as if I'm studying English with close friends from home. Other staff are also very friendly, and they provided me with many useful tips on study, travel, food and more. The environment at Berlitz Vancouver is quite different with other schools where I have learned before. The class is more exclusive and students have more time to speak in class. Most importantly, Berlitz has a unique learning method and level system, which helps students to learn in an immersive way in their most suitable level. The school is located in downtown Vancouver, a 5-min.walk to Canada Place and the harbor. Beautiful views, especially in summer. I will definitely be going back to learn during summer next year.
I have been taking lessons at Berlitz for five months and I know so much Mandarin already it's awesome. Maylin is a really good teacher, she is really kind and fun to talk to. Reception staff and everyone that works there are pleasant, and have been available to talk when I needed them. By far the most encouraging educational experience I've had since I can remember.
I started studying French at Berlitz with Liina about four months ago and I'm beyond thrilled with my progress. I've tried to learn French at college several times, but that style of learning has never clicked for me. The method that Berlitz uses has made such a difference; it looks like I'll be achieving my lifelong dream of having a second language after all! Liina is a brilliant teacher who pushes me but also makes me laugh, a LOT. Jacquelyn sets the tone of the school with her warmth and compassionate listening. Tomoko is so positive and helpful that she makes me feel right at home as soon as I walk in the door. I've come so far in such a short time; I feel confident that upon my return to France next summer, I'll be holding conversations comfortably. Thank you, Berlitz Vancouver!

I highly recommend Berlitz Vancouver for learning a new language. I have been studying French grammar with Berlitz online and augmenting those lessons with the intense vocabulary instruction at Berlitz Vancouver. The staff and instructors at Berlitz Vancouver are charming and have delightful senses of humour. I am so surprised by the degree of my progress!
"Thank you for supporting me on my mission to learn German. I enjoyed every lesson and feel confident practicing my new skill with others. I’ll miss coming to Berlitz every day. I really appreciated the high level of service, flexibility, and hospitality, and I know my instructors also enjoy working for Berlitz!"
"Thank you for your kindness during my stay in Vancouver. I will always cherish the memories. The Level 2 Berlitz Certificate will be my treasure for life. Also, I was very touched by the message card from everyone. I will continue studying English so that I will be able to help visitors from around the world during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!"

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.
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.
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 the confidence to speak the language fluently!
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.
