Hello Berlitz!

Bye-bye university, and hello Berlitz!

  5. I am appalled that you colleagues does not see the scheme, and even support it. Without lit. you do not have a major. You Spanish major program will phase out in 2020.

    Some professors really take their job (and their discipline) for granted, and not seriouslt enough.
