Questions about the free sessions...
For how long will these sessions run?
We will only hold these sessions until the quarantine is lifted or until April 24th, whatever happens first.
Which topics will be covered?
For kids, we will use a variety of daily life topics including favorite toys, clothes, animals and school.
For adults, we will use the current life situations and we will explore topics based on the interest of the attendees.
What fluency level are the children's sessions?
The sessions for the children are mainly for those who understand some Spanish but cannot yet speak it, and for those who do speak it with many mistakes.
What level should I sign up for?
Are you able to carry a conversation in at least the present, and both past and future tenses? Then you can sign up for the Intermediate class. Still not sure? Contact us, and we will send you a free assessment, or schedule a 15 minute conversation over the phone.
Frequent questions about classes..
What is your cancellation policy?
For private classes: 24 hour notice for adults, 10 am same day for children. So, when you cancel your attendance with notice, your payment will then be credited to the next class.
For group classes: no credit for cancelling, but we can book a max of 2 make up classes on a different day to keep you up to date.
For online classes: Please join the class 2-5 minutes before the class starts, to ensure the microphone and video are streaming. No credit for cancelling if your connection drops and you are unable to re-connect, but we can give you additional homework.
Can we start anytime?
You can start your private classes at any time.
I want to join a class that already started, what can I do?
To catch up to a group class after it starts, you can either book one or more private tutoring sessions ($35 per session) or study on your own & do all the homework assigned up until that point (no charge for the homework!). Out of respect to the other students, we will not revisit learning from past weeks, unless it is requested by the entire group.
Do you follow a book? Do I have to buy it?
We do use the "Living Language Spanish" book for exercises, that is until we finalize our own workbook! You are more than welcome to purchase it at the store.
