Withdrawal from a contracted course must occur at least seven (7) business days prior to the start of the program for a full refund. Any subsequent withdrawal from a contracted course, for whatever reason, will result in forfeiture of the total cost of enrollment.


Enrollments are for consecutively scheduled classes. If you miss a class during a 4, 6 or 8-week enrollment, the class will be forfeited. Students who have purchased a 12-week enrollment will be allowed to miss any one (1) class and will receive a make-up class which will come in the form of a 13th consecutive class.

MAKE-UP POLICY
The enrollment in a group is for consecutively scheduled classes. However, in case students miss a class, we do send an email with the material covered, the homework assignment and handouts (if any). This way, students are able to study the material, do the homework and be prepared for the subsequent class.

In general, if students miss one class, is not something that would jeopardize the course. However, each student has a way to process new information.

Question from Anonymous
If I take the 12-week course, at what level will I get to? Does it guarantee fluency? Or will I need to take more courses after?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The primary focus of this course is the conversation. The approach to learning is a blend between a formal approach focused on grammar and the basic structure of the language ­and an interactive approach geared toward situations that promote verbal interaction among the students while building up vocabulary.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The 12-week session in a group class, teachers will cover: greetings, days of the month, days of the week, seasons, ser & estar (to be), present tense of regular & irregular verbs, their conjugations and usages in a sentence. Students will also be exposed to structural parts of the language such as articles (masculine, feminine, singular & plural) prepositions, conjunctions, pronouns, etc. In case students are familiar with another romance language, teachers may reach past tense.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
That said, after 12 weeks students level will be between Beginner I and High Beginners, depending on how further they progress in content. Students should be able to introduced themselves, their professions, family member, basic weather related vocabulary and emotions, however they will not be fluent.

Question from Janice V.
Hi - I am thinking of signing up for 8-week beginners Spanish on March 20th. If I sign up for the 6-week program, can I increase it to 8 or even 12 and just pay the difference after I know whether I can commit to the longer period of time?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! Yes, you can! To reserve a space you need only sign up for the minimum 6 weeks and may upgrade to a longer enrollment by your 2nd class. 12-week enrollments include 1 make-up class (a 13th consecutive class) for a missed lesson. As with all of the school's group classes, once a class is started it will be ongoing with flexible enrollment options.

I love that the classes are small, this was crucial to me getting the attention that I needed from the instructor. Nelson is great, he takes the time to make sure everyone fully understands the lesson!
