How to arrange a one-on-one course
The course begins with a course agreement. The main terms of the agreement are as follows:
- The client pays the cost of one month’s worth of lessons in advance.
- Studies may begin once the payment has been received in full.
- Any necessary equipment (e.g., computers and software) is the responsibility of the student.
- The fee includes the cost of the course materials used in the lessons (e.g., course books, work sheets etc.), but it does not include the cost of any additional learning aids.
Responsibilities and Rights of House of Languages
- House of Languages is responsible for the provision of a high-quality and timely study program, for the provision of teachers, and for protecting copyright.
- The course will only be led by another instructor with the prior consent of the client.
- House of Languages is responsible for informing the client in good time about what will happen during the course, including by providing information on changes in the course and providing the information necessary to enable the client to receive the lessons.
- House of Languages is entitled to break the agreement if the client grossly violates the norms of decency or poses a threat to the service providers.
