BVC wins 2008 Eddie Award

Call us Today

The Berlitz Virtual Classroom (BVC) was a key element in Lilly Critical Care Europe's choice of Berlitz as a comprehensive language service provider. Had BVC not been an integral part of the Berlitz portfolio of services it is quite reasonable to suggest that a significant portion of Eli Lilly's needs would have to have been satisfied by another language service provider.
Notwithstanding, the level of service from the Berlitz Virtual Classroom has been consistent with that received via physical Berlitz Language Centers. Additionally, those employees engaged in Berlitz Virtual Classroom lessons have responded very favorably to the medium, interaction and convenience of learning online.

Berlitz Languages, Inc., a global provider of premium language training and cultural consulting services, announced today that Berlitz Virtual Classroom (BVC) has won the 2008 Eddie Award for Best Foreign Language Training Website.

This year marks ComputED'sTMs 13th year for its Eddie Awards. This award ceremony targets innovative and content-rich programs and websites which provide parents and teachers with the technology to foster educational excellence--including augmenting the classroom curriculum and improving teacher productivity. Winners are selected from titles submitted by publishers around the world. Some selection criteria are academic content, potential for broad classroom use, technical merit, subject approach, and management system.

BVC enables instructors and students to come together in real time via the Internet. Students who can't make it to lessons at the language centers due to time or travel commitments can enjoy all the effectiveness of live instruction right from their home or office computers, using a standard computer outfitted with speakers, a sound card, microphone, and web connection.

BVC Lessons are taught with the same method and materials used in classroom instruction in any spoken language. BVC is used for both individual classes and group classes with teacher-to-student and student-to-student interactivity, virtual hand raising, lesson pace feedback, and more. BVC lessons can also be recorded, so that students can review them in their own time.
