Yeah. Inlingua and Berlitz and most "McLanguage" schools are Swiss.. or at least pretend to be.


Berlitz was Japanese-owned the last time I heard. And before that they were part of Maxwell's portfolio, before he went for that unfortunate "swim".

Right you are! Surprisingly, it was a German entrepreneur living in America who began it.

The organization now known as Berlitz International, Inc. was founded in 1878 by Maximilian D. Berlitz in Providence, Rhode Island, USA. Descending from a long line of teachers and mathematicians, Maximilian Berlitz grew up in the Black Forest region of Germany. He emigrated to the United States in 1872 and arrived prepared to teach Greek, Latin, and six other European languages according to the strict traditionalist grammar-translation approach.

I think the lowest pay in my town is 14.50euro/45minutes. My lowest is 15euro but i'm only there 4 or so teaching hours/week and I like the people and i don't prepare but even then I'm still disgusted how low it is. It should never be lower than the Volkshochschule which is 17.50euro here...

The VHS doesn't pay badly, if what I heard was correct.

I knew a German who taught English there, and he said he got DM 50 per hour.

I though that sounded pretty good. So far as I'd heard, the El Cheapos paid less than DM 20 per hour at the time.
