    It's one of the better adverts. No, it's actually the best I have seen so far.

    Do you think potential students get it, tdol? I think it's hilarious but I'm not Berlitz's target audience.

    I hope so, but maybe not. The Alliance Francaise ran an ad a few years ago with a tadpole turning into a frog, which I also liked, though I imagine many would have missed the joke.

    The Germans like it.
    I get many positive responses in my Berlitz classes.
    I think it's great too

    Funny thing is these really do stick in you head and maybe even have practical application.

    This one is really funny if totally unbelievable from a TEFL/TESL perspective. Many of you have probably already seen it on the big screen.

    It is also a good way to learn language sometimes.
