Frequently Asked Questions about Students Enrolling for English Lessons

Which is the highest number of students you would be satisfied with? 8, 9, 10? You have a choice. Our groups include between 8 to 12 students, so that we can guarantee a successful acquisition of the English language and healthy student-teacher relationships.

Practising the language both within, as well as outside classroom settings is of equal important. For this reason, our institute provides this opportunity to our students. In specific, it is equipped with a library, which includes English Readers/Storybooks that cover all levels, ages and interests. We also run yearly story reading competitions, with great awards.

Students are expected to purchase their books in time, which are pre-ordered and provided to the learners by a local bookshop we have cooperated with for years now. In the case of a damage, or loss of books, our institute has no responsibility and can replace, or order the books, at the cost of the student.

For these families (with 3 children, or more), the 3rd child is offered a full scholarship, and the 4th child is offered half a scholarship
