Can the IELTS exams be combined?

Language tests and language exams

To assess your level of knowledge before starting a Berlitz program, we conduct a general Berlitz language test. This test can simply be carried out orally on site or on the phone, completely online, or as a combination. This is how we can determine which course is best for you.

Would you like to test your current language level independently of a Berlitz language course or prepare for an external language test? We are sure to have an offer that suits your needs.

Language certificates and diplomas

We prepare you for exams for internationally recognized language certificates. Many Berlitz language schools also serve as official examination centers where you can register for the exam directly.

Language tests

We offer preparation courses for the following language tests:
