Tradition For over 134 years Berlitz has been committed to helping the world communicate through leadership and innovation in language, cultural and leadership training. The Berlitz approach to instruction has had a direct impact on revolutionizing the way languages are taught around the world. When Mr. Berlitz started his school, he changed the world. He changed how people saw languages and taught languages. At Berlitz we are dedicated to one ultimate goal – the success and satisfaction of our customers.
