Can I join a class at anytime or do I have to wait until the beginning of the session?

You can join a class at anytime. Depending on the time in which you join the class, the level will be different. You can check our schedule to see the different classes and the level they are at. We usually recommend visiting the class before enrolling to make sure this class is the right fit for you. There is no obligation to you if it is not.

What is the easiest and quickest way to catch up if I do join in the middle of a session?

If you feel like you need to catch up with the rest of the class, let us know. You can schedule private make-up classes with an instructor. The instructor will help you to catch up with the rest of the class by reviewing what they have done previously.

If I miss a class, are make-up classes allowed?
If you miss a class, you can schedule a make up session to catch up with the rest of the class. These make up sessions are either individual or in group, depending on whether there is more than one person from your class interested. During the make-up session the instructor will review with you everything that was done in class.

Do the adult classes have different levels or parts?
Yes, you can choose between Beginner or Intermediate.

What’s the policy if I am late to class?
The class will start at its scheduled time. Just make sure that your entrance is not disruptive to the rest of the students and the instructor. If you are the only student, the instructor will wait for you only 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the class will not take place.

What percentage of the class time will be devoted to speaking and to writing?
Thought it depends on the level of the class, our classes are mostly devoted to help you with your speaking skills. Nonetheless, writing and grammar are closely connected to being able to communicate effectively in the target language, so we frequently introduce grammar and writing exercises in class to help you improve your language skills.

Do I have to purchase the book? Can I follow along in class without a book?

All students in a group class need to have a book in order to follow the class. Also, many exercises sent as homework are from the book.

What if I want to be a part of a group class, however, my schedule does not fit with the current classes?
If we are not offering any group classes that fit your schedule, you will be placed on a waitlist until there is a sufficient amount of students to form a class at the requested time. Private classes can also be formed at your home or our location. This will allow you to choose your preferred time and location.

Will homework be assigned, and if so, how much will be given?
Because classes take place once a week, homework is assigned most of the time. The amount of homework is at the teacher’s discretion.
