Frequently Asked Questions
1) How do we know what level to sign up for?
For each level, there are prerequisites. Your child should master almost all of them. There is no need to master each point to perfection as there are always reviews before moving on to something new and more advanced.
2) How can I tell if my child is keeping up with the curriculum if we can’t speak the language at home?
You can always contact your child’s teacher by email to ask questions, and he will be able to answer your questions and help you.
3) What if we want our child to go back to school? How do we know his level?
Most schools will have your child take a placement test to assess his/her level and put him in the right class.
4) It seems you have a method of your own, but do you follow the curriculum set by most states?
We actually do. We just make a few adjustments. We removed a few things that were unnecessary and added things that were not taught, but should be. Students do learn the essential (grammar) in a better way.
5) How long are the lessons, and how do you access the virtual classroom?
Lessons are 55 minutes long. They will have an ID and password to access Moodle. Moodle is the platform where all the homework will be posted along with the link to every webinar.
6) Do students get grades?
No, students don’t get grades. When grades come into play, the one thing students seem to care about is getting an A. We want them to only think about learning a new language. We don’t want any negative thoughts to cross their minds when thinking about the language they are learning. They should just enjoy the process and learn.
7) I would really like to take one of your classes, but it doesn’t fit in my schedule. What are my options?
You can always choose to take the self-study course, which will allow you to view all classes on demand for $99/class, or $149 for 2 courses (2 semesters), or $249 for 4 courses.
8) What is the maximum number of students in each class?
Well, there must be at least 8 students for classes to start and a maximum of 16 students will be accepted in each class.
9) What is the cost for a class?
One class costs $255 per semester. That includes the weekly live webinars (recorded & available 24/7) as well as all the homework and extra tools available on Moodle. The self-study course can be purchased for $99/semester. AP classes are $350/semester.
10) Are there sibling discounts?
Sibling discounts are sometimes offered. It depends a bit on where we are in the enrollment process. Contact us to see if any are available.
11) Do you offer payment plans? Contact us for payment plan options.
12) What is the minimum age to sign up for your classes? We consider 10 is the minimum age to sign up for our classes as they contain grammar that would be hard to grasp for anyone younger. That being said, we have seen some very mature 9 year-old students, but 10 is usually the minimum.
