Personalized, one-on-one language learning can include specialized vocabulary and business expressions related to the organization’s needs or the individual’s job.
The Berlitz instructor’s undivided attention allows for individuals to learn 100% of the time, spending approximately 50% of the time listening and 50% of the time speaking. The one-on-one scenario permits the Berlitz instructor to focus exclusively on the individual.
