The Analysis of the Berlitz Approach to English Language Teaching
Admira Halvadžić, 2013, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: This paper investigates the role of the Berlitz method of teaching English in today's language education. The Berlitz method has been present in the English language area for a long time and the principal objective of this diploma thesis was to prove that even today, it is a very successful and effective method of teaching English, whose characteristics should be implemented in language classrooms around the world. The first part of my thesis introduces the history of English language teaching and the history of the Berlitz method. Characteristics of the Berlitz method, its development and the role in today's education are presented. The second part, which is also the principal part of the thesis, draws upon lesson observations of three children’s and two adult classes which I did at the Berlitz language centre in Maribor. The data collected here focused on three aspects of the didactical triangle: the teacher, the learner and the content. Important information about each segment is introduced, with the emphasis on the content, the use of teaching aids, the role of fluency and accuracy, the rapport between teachers and learners and about motivation in Berlitz classes. The last part of my thesis involves information about Berlitz kids’ camps and a survey which reveals some significant information about the teachers’ and learners’ experiences and views on the Berlitz method.
Keywords: English language teaching, the Berlitz method, lesson observations, the content, teaching aids, fluency and accuracy, rapport, motivation, Berlitz kids' camps.
