Tripping Out

¿Habla Español?

Would understanding Spanish help you market to customers better, manage employees more effectively or do business overseas more easily? If so, you'll want to turn to a company that's a veteran at foreign language lessons. Berlitz Spanish offers continual interactive feedback as it teaches you the language via hundreds of dialogues and exercises. Besides giving you the basics, the program's speech recognition module monitors your accent and lets you know when you're truly talking like a native. Worth the price of admission even if you're only looking to charm a single client in his or her own language.
