Langenscheidt is one of the most internationally renowned and leading publishers in the fields of Languages and Reference. Founded in 1856, the yellow brand stands for exceptional quality and expertise in the field of language learning.
More than 150 years ago Gustav Langenscheidt, a passionate traveler, developed the company's first self-study language course in collaboration with his French language teacher. He was tired of not being able to communicate in foreign languages on his journeys. Nowadays our products range from language courses for all levels and all kinds of learners, to dictionaries, phrasebooks, grammar books, plus an extensive children’s and entertainment program.
As well as books, Langenscheidt offers a wide range of content in digital formats, such as apps and eBooks.
