Foreign Language Program FAQ
1. How many students are there in a group class?
Classes range in size from three to twelve students. Our small classes mean you get plenty of attention from your teacher while facilitating student interaction, thereby enhancing both speaking and listening skills.
2. Can I take a trial class before deciding whether to register?
Yes! You can join the first class as a trial. If you are happy and decide to continue, we will include the cost of this class in your package. If you decide not to continue, you pay nothing.
3. Do you have daytime and weekend classes?
Yes! There are some classes on Saturdays from 11:00am to 1:00pm. However, most of our classes are taught between Monday and Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30pm. If these hours do not meet your needs, talk to our staff about taking private lessons which can be arranged at a time that suits you.
4. When is the registration deadline?
We ask you to register and make payment one week prior to the start of the session.
5. I am not sure of my level, is there a placement test I can take?
Yes! And it is free! Unless you are an absolute beginner, we recommend taking the placement test which we can send to you. If needed, we can arrange an interview with one of our teachers. Based on your test, you will be placed in the class that best matches your level and ability.
6. Do you offer makeup classes? What happens if I miss a class?
Yes! We can offer makeup classes with your group class teacher as a private class at a discounted rate. If this is not an option for you, we are happy to send you a summary of the class you miss, so you catch up in time for the next class.
7. My class seems too basic / difficult for me. Can I try a different level?
Yes! Although we test students in advance, sometimes the level is too easy or too difficult. If this is the case, talk to your teacher and see what he or she thinks. If your teacher agrees, you can try a class at the lower/higher level.
