Klett World Languages, a Chicago-based world language publishing company, completed the transformation of its business in 2022 and reports strong results stemming from its expanded offerings, improved operations, and rapidly growing client community.
Formerly known as Klett USA, Inc., Klett World Languages responded to educators' desire for inclusive, communicative, proficiency-based materials and courseware for Spanish, German, French, and Italian. Building on a stellar reputation for its German language offerings, the company is having great success both in the K-12 and Higher Education markets with programs such as PROYECTOS (Spanish Higher Ed), REPORTEROS and MAPAS (Spanish K-12), IMPULS DEUTSCH (German Higher Ed), PORTFOLIO DEUTSCH NEU (German K-12) or KLASSE! (German K-12).
These are just examples of a vast collection of more than 1,900 offerings that the company currently has in its portfolio. Every program within Klett World Languages carries the hallmark of the company's focus on diversity, inclusion, and real-world relevance. Meaningful communication is at the center of its work and that of its parent company, Klett Group, and its 80+ companies serving educators and students in seventeen countries.
“We are here to support educators and provide quality, communicative, ACTFL-aligned language education for their students. Students of all ages are learning and effectively communicating in a new language with our textbooks in the US.”
Katia Coppola, KWL CEO
The work at Klett World Languages is producing results as demonstrated by 100% year-over-year sales. The company works with school districts across the US and a growing roster of prestigious higher education institutions, such as Columbia University, Duke University, UCLA, to name a few.
In 2022, Klett World Languages has won some important K-12 adoptions and has launched its first Italian program (DAVVERO). One of the highlights of 2023 will be the publication of the highly anticipated REPORTERS FRANCOPHONES, an inclusive, communicative French K-12 program that is based on its Spanish best-selling counterpart, REPORTEROS.
