Great place for multicultural experience
Language Instructor (Former Employee), Washington, DCMay 5, 2014
I like working at Berlitz because I get a chance to teach English to non-English speakers from many countries with many backgrounds and of different ages. Teaching these students is a great way to learn about a new culture while teaching them about mine. It can be a challenge sometimes due to cultural differences, but patience and determination can help a great deal! Everyone at Berlitz is so kind, friendly, and always willing to help. It is a great atmosphere for those who want to expand their cultural understandings past their own.

Great people bad money
Language Instructor (Current Employee), Denver, COMay 5, 2014
Pros: experience and fun people
Cons: bad hour rate paid
Work for almost couple years with Berlitz and I have to say, good place to start a temporary job. People are great but the money you earn as language instructor is terrible (around $11/hour). Good management and co-workers are great. Hardest part of the job is working a lot during a week, earning little money, and then the next week no more classes.

Amazing workplace to meet and interact with different people with diverse backgrounds.
English & Spanish Professor (Current Employee), San Juan, PRApril 24, 2014
It's a great company in which the employee learns how to teach and perfect the art of teaching. It doesn't follow a routine; everyday there's something new. You will have an array of experiences with each class. Co-workers are extremely friendly and willing to cooperate.

great job if it's not your only one
English Language Instructor (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 18, 2013
Pros: great people, flexible work hours
Cons: terrible pay, no guaranteed work schedule, no benefits
If this place is your primary source of income, then you're going to not be able to support yourself at all! I used this place solely for teaching experience. There are no pay incentives, you have no set schedule, and sometimes weeks can pass before you have a class. The people who work there are nice, but I wouldn't recommend working there!
