Experiences with Berlitz?

Can't Post | Private Reply
Hello All,

I am currently living and working in Mexico City and would like to improve my Spanish, so I have been checking out schools around the city. I can converse with my friends over beers just fine, but need to improve my business Spanish. Especially inter-office correspondence, presentation skills, etc. I need the vocabulary to be primarily focused on advertising and marketing terminology.

....which has brought me to the Berlitz Institute. They seem to be the most "professionally-focused" school that I have found. They assured me that I would be talking to clients and giving presentations with confidence in a couple of weeks, but I am not so sure about that!

Has anyone studied with them? Berlitz is about 3x more expensive than the other schools I have visited. Is the price worth it? They also want me to buy their pricey books and tapes, even though I have plenty of my own.

Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
