In 1872, Professor Maximilian Berlitz emigrated from the Black Forest region of Germany to Providence, Rhode Island, prepared to teach Greek, Latin, and six other European languages. Six years later, he joined Warner Polytechnic College and established a new method of language-learning based on the principle that language skills are best acquired through conversation, not memorization, with a focus on real-life, authentic content. His innovative approach to teaching languages met with almost immediate success at its conception, and today, Berlitz Publishing is the unparalleled language-learning market leader, providing the global community with the skills needed to converse with anyone, anywhere.
