At this occasion, we asked Philippe Salomon, Director of Berlitz, for more information about this global education company based in 70 countries.
Please, introduce yourself : My name is Philippe Salomon, Director at Berlitz Luxembourg, Berlitz is a global education company providing language and business training to corporate and private customers.
Could you present Berlitz ?
In 1878, Maximilian Berlitz founded his first Berlitz School of Languages in Rhode Island, USA.
Today in over 70 countries and 550 centers the name Berlitz is internationally synonymous with high-quality language training. Berlitz has a tailored training program to suit everyone. Whether for adults or children, executives or travel enthusiasts, we provide top trainers, a motivating atmosphere, and modern content. The Berlitz product range is very wide. We offer live training in our center or in a company, via our e-learning language training solutions we can deliver live training anywhere in the world.
Berlitz also offers a wide range of professional business seminars and workshops (for example team building, time management, cross cultural seminars and many more). Another training solution are our Language Camps for teens between 7 and 17, where our young customers stay away from home in a youth hostel at several top locations in Luxembourg. Organized several times per year mainly during school holidays with lots of activity and sports. And last but not least our Berlitz Study Abroad program offers language training outside of your home country. Choose from many different options, individual training, group, full day, half-day.

Who are your training courses designed for?
Berlitz language trainings are designed for corporate as for individual (kids, teens and adults) customers. Besides our face-to-face training, either in individual or group format, we also have a wide range of e-learning solutions (for example for people who travel a lot or who live far away from a Berlitz center).
Our Berlitz Virtual Classroom offer live training online, either in a group or individual. Our Cyberteachers online self-study platform lets the customer work on his or her own pace from where ever they are. Our online platform is always there when they need it. In addition to the e-learning solutions, Berlitz also offers language training by telephone where a teacher calls the student on his or her telephone or via Skype.
How are these trainings organized?
In order to find the best solution for the candidate, we always propose a brief meeting with one of our consultants in our office, by telephone or via our chat browser on our homepage www.berlitz.lu. Lessons are given in our center in the Grand-Rue in Luxembourg city.
Whether at a Berlitz center or at a company, Berlitz instructors deliver lessons using the Berlitz Method® and facilitate the achievement of your language goals. In order to ensure this at all times, Berlitz instructors are exclusively native speakers, specially trained and experienced – making them an integral part of the promise of quality made to clients and course participants.
You already participated in the Moovijob Tour DeLux job fair last year, why choose a fair to meet new candidates?
A fair is a great opportunity for Berlitz to introduce our language training solutions directly to the candidates. We can give potential candidates immediate solutions to their individual language training needs. Speaking more than 2 or 3 languages is a great asset when looking for a first job in Luxembourg. Many companies require their candidates to speak more than 3-4 language. Berlitz can help by providing language training tailored to the individual needs of our customers.
