How can you be sure you’ll have a class at the right level for me?
We may not be sure at the time you book your Evening Course how many other students will be present in the school when you come or what their levels will be, but to ensure the quality of our courses we always try to avoid mixing levels, especially for beginners.
- when you confirm your booking, we will send you a placement test by e-mail to get an idea of your level
- during the first lesson of your Evening Course, we will verify that the test result is correct
- sometimes we may have to open a new class for you, even if we don’t have the minimum number of students at your level
In the event that your group does not have the minimum number of students at your level (4), you will be offered the choice between two alternatives:
- a full refund of the Evening Course fee, or
- the alternative of continuing to study in a smaller group but with a shorter lesson length:
|No.students||Lesson length (mins.)|
|4 min. 10 max||180 mins.|
