Terms and Conditions

  • Once you have paid for your lessons, you have 1 year (365 days) to redeem them, after which they are no longer valid.
  • Cancellation policy: You can cancel or reschedule your lessons up to 48 hours in advance of the lesson start time, by using the links provided in the email confirmations. You’ll receive either a refund (for individually paid-for lessons) or a credit back (for lesson packages). Cancellations within 48 hours of the class start time cannot be refunded or credited. If the teacher cancels, for any reason and at any time, we will refund the payment (for individually booked lessons) or credit the class back to you (for lesson packages). Lessons cannot be cancelled retrospectively.
  • Refund policy: You can request a refund within 2 weeks (14 days) for any reason, provided you have not booked any lesson with a teacher (applies to both individually booked classes and packages). After this time, we cannot provide refunds.

Frequently Asked Questions

What level are these classes for?

Intermediate and above. If you are beginner, these classes are not for you (yet). 

We have plans to introduce Beginner Conversation classes soon.

What currency can I pay with?

You can only pay in USD ($). While we would love to accept other currencies, we are currently restricted by the booking technology.

What's the refund and cancellation policy?

You can cancel your session up to 48 hours before it starts and get a full refund. In the unlikely event that we cancel a lesson, we’ll refund you in full.

Can I book more than one lesson?

You’ll see all the available lessons for booking above. You can book as many as you like. We plan on offering package discounts in the future.

What's the preparatory task, and do I have to do it?

In order to vary the conversation and include various topics, each class has a preparatory task. It’s usually just a warm-up, like watching a 5 minute video, or reading an article. In order to get the most out of the classes, we highly recommend completing the task.

I'm a Pro member. Do I get a discount?

We plan to offer 20% discounts to our Pro members. Right now, we’ve just started as a pilot project, so no discounts are available. 

I'm nervous about speaking...

Everyone else is in the same boat! Our teachers include activities to break you in easily, so that you aren’t put on the spot. We strive to make the classes as comfortable as possible.

“Simply put, these are the best classes I’ve had, and I’ve had many. Our teacher clearly loves what she does and she makes everyone feel safe and comfortable. I love how patient she is, and I don’t fear classes, I look forward to them. It’s the first time I have not been filled with anxiety during class.”
