FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. How do I know which level I have?
You can assess your level with a quick online test that may be found here Test Your Level. Please note that the online test is intended to give you a quick indication of your level, and is not a comprehensive assessment. If you decide to book a course with us, we will further assess your English level via a phone interview and a pre-course questionnaire.
2. Can I take a trial class?
Depending on course capacity, it may be possible for you to attend a paid trial lesson. The cost for attending one lesson is €20, and there is no obligation to continue with the course. For a private lesson, the paid trial costs €30 for a 1-hour lesson.
3. How can I register?
The simplest way to join a course is to register online. Pick the course that you want, fill out your details, and you are on your way!
