Please review our policies and procedures before registering for classes.

Group classes

  • To register for a group class, please contact us to inquire about beginning a new class or joining an existing class
  • Group classes are pro-rated if you join a class already in session
  • Each level is devided into 2 sessions of 16 lessons x 90min each (ex. A1.1 and A1.2)
  • Registration and payment is required to reserve space in a class
  • Personal holidays, illness, absences cannot be considered or made up at a later time
  • Should a lesson be cancelled by the school (because of illness or absence of the teacher), it will be made up within the duration of the booking or the course will be prolonged according to the number of lessons missed.

Private classes

  • Private lessons last 60min, 90min or 120min
  • Private students can start with a trial lesson before deciding for a block. The trial lesson is billed sepeartly at the regular fee
  • Private lessons have to be purchased in blocks (Abo) of 8 lessons or 24 lessons
  • Semi-Private lessons have to be purchased in blocks of 8 lessons
  • Private and Semi-Private Students must give 24 hours notice for class cancellation otherwise tuition will be forfeited. This also applies in case of illness or emergency.
  • To change the course time of a private lesson or semi-private lesson the student(s) also must give 24 hours notice
  • To change the class time for a semi-private class, both students must agree on the change of appointment, i. e. the person who is unable to attend the arranged lesson is responsible for contacting their lesson partner and can only change the appointment free of charge with their agreement and 24 hours prior to scheduled lesson time. Should one or both parties fail to attend without cancelling the lesson in time (e. g. due to illness or holiday), it will be charged as a normal lesson.
  • Blocks of 8 lessons are valid for 11 weeks with the start of the first lesson.
  • Blocks of 24 lessons are valid for 30 weeks with the start of the first lesson. Validity can be extended on written request to the school management, but will result in course length reduction. Validity is extended if the teacher is sick or on holiday and no replacement option is given to the student.
