Utilizing a time-tested curriculum devised by language teacher Maximilian Berlitz in 1878, Berlitz recruits fluent instructors to teach their native languages to pupils during in-person and online lessons. Instructors teach dozens of languages in accordance with the acclaimed Berlitz Method, which focuses heavily on conversation, active student participation, and knowing how to conjugate verbs while blindfolded. Each lesson builds upon skills taught during previous sessions, starting with essential techniques and eventually covering more intricate components to develop a confident command of the language. Berlitz further cultivates foreign-language wisdom with services for corporations, schools, and government agencies at more than 500 locations in 70 countries and three planetary systems.
