Rennert International was founded in 1973 by César Rennert, a former faculty member at New York University. Mr. Rennert's mission was to create a high quality language school that offered small classes with a focus on conversational teaching methods.
"We wanted an alternative from the way languages were taught at the university level," Mr. Rennert says. "We were forced to teach lots of grammar there, there was very little conversation in class, and the large number of students in classes made learning a language difficult."
Rennert started with one classroom, one teacher and one language. Almost four decades later, César Rennert's small enterprise has grown into a hub of international education and communication in New York City, South Beach and St. Thomas University in Miami,
