How many students are in a group class?
The number of students in group classes will vary based on the popularity of a language and the difficulty level of the course. Typically, group classes range from 3-6 people in a class, but do not exceed 10 students.
Do you operate on a semester schedule?
No, we operate on a rolling schedule, so new class schedules are posted approximately every few weeks, or sooner.
What happens if I miss a class?
Private or Semi-Private classes can be rescheduled provided that the institute is given a 24-hour notice or 48-hour notice for Monday classes. Students who miss a group class have the option of attending an alternate group course of equal level if available, or scheduling a 1-hour catch-up class to make-up for what has been missed, both for a fee. Digital resources are available and we are constantly working to provide quality materials for our students.
