Experience and process

Berlitz has decades of experience in business systems and language learning techniques. Our day-to-day language center management systems, customer relations programs, personnel selection and supervision programs are used in Berlitz franchises just as in our corporate locations. The famous Berlitz Method of instruction has been developed and tested in hundreds of Berlitz Learning Centers worldwide.

Every franchise location is assigned a Regional Franchise Manager as their main contact person.  This member of our corporate staff coordinates Berlitz resources in supporting your implementation of the Berlitz model in your local business. Throughout the process the Franchise Manager performs the Berlitz operations Quality Audit which gives you feedback on your franchise and helps you plan necessary improvements.

Berlitz will provide required software to enhance your franchise operations, from your cost and sales process analysis to instructor scheduling and beyond.

Be in business for yourself, but not by yourself.

Orientation and training

Our training goal is to facilitate the implementation of the Berlitz business model in your everyday processes.

Our new franchise orientation – the philosophy and tactics that have allowed Berlitz to grow over 138 years will assist you in hitting the ground running, during the franchisee selection process we profile candidates’ talents in key areas in order to focus our initial orientation process.

Just before opening, your learning center staff receives Product and Service Training, operations training and, for teaching staff, Berlitz Instructor Training. These sessions emphasize day-to-day operations and the characteristics of Berlitz programs.

During your years as a Berlitz franchisee you may attend periodic meetings presenting corporate strategies, training in new products, or developing management skills – and in every one you expand your network of corporate and franchisee colleagues.
