Well, the day has come. By the time you read this, the WordMaster will have penned his final edition and hit the SEND E-MAIL button for the last time. Having introduced you to thousands of key words and expression from the English language, we'll be retiring the e-mail version of Berlitz WordMaster and moving to our new homes on Facebook and Twitter. From there we'll continue sending you encore editions from our nearly twelve-year archive. If you haven't made the switch yet, now's the time. We hope to see you there!
