I can't make it to my normal class this week. Is there another class I can attend so that I don't fall behind?

Absolutely! We're flexible when it comes to attending alternative classes (catch ups) within the same Term. Most of the time we can find another class within that week that is covering the same material, but if not, we can at least get you an extra class or two to make up your hours. Just send us an email and we'll let you know what the options are for the making up the missed session. 

In any case, you'll receive an email with a summary of what you've missed in class, as well as the details of any homework set. 

I work shift work. What can I do?

We’re very flexible when it comes to students who work shift work. Our classes run to course programmes, which our teachers follow in planning their classes. There’s always a little variation from group to group, but in principle all classes of the same level will cover the same material each week. This means you can attend catch-up classes in other groups without too much difficulty!

We suggest enrolling in a ‘home’ class, which is the class you’re likely to spend most time in, and then in the weeks you can’t make it to that class you can attend another of the same level running during the week. We allow all students up to 3 catch-up classes per Term, but if you need more flexibility due to your work we can accomodate.

The only thing we ask is that you contact us with your request and give a little bit of notice (if possible) so that we can arrange the class swaps you need. 

I'm going to be away for a few weeks of the course. Can I pay pro-rata?

For students in your situation, we recommend attending catch up classes to make up the hours you miss. This is the cheapest option per class and it also means you get the most out of your studies.

If this is not possible, we do offer part-course fees. These are calculated on a sliding scale – the more classes you take, the cheaper the fee per class. Contact us for more specific part-course fee information.

How much homework is there?

For every 1.5-hour class you should expect around one hour of homework. or approximately two hours for a 3-hour class. Nobody will force you to do your homework, but we do highly recommend it. In general, the more time you spend working on your Spanish outside of class, the more you'll get out out of the classes themselves.

When are the classes held? 

Most of our classes are held in the evenings from Monday to Thursday.

We also offer a few classes on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday mornings. Check out our Enrol page for a full, up-to-date timetable of all our classes, and use the Location menu to refine your search.

Should I take a 3-hour class or a 1.5-hour class?

That's entirely up to you!

The content is the same in both course styles – the only difference is how much time you're prepared to commit to learning Spanish each week. Make sure you factor homework time into your answer. Of course, the more class time you commit to, the faster you'll achieve your goals.
