Idiom, the specialist of courses for adults.

Individual or group courses, general or business French.

 General conditions 2017

Enrolment

To be effective an enrolment should be sent in any written form by e-mail, fax or post.

Course registration and accommodation placement fee

An amount of 60 € (incl. VAT = 72 €) is due for each participant. If a participant combines several courses this amount is only to be paid once. And we will not charge this fee if a student comes back within the same year.

An amount of 35 € (incl. VAT = 42 €) will be charged if Idiom is to take care of accommodation.

Public holidays and annual closure

Lessons missing due to a public holiday are not lost but entirely compensated by lessons or activities, except for 1st May and 14th July. Public holidays are: 17/04, 01/05, 08/05, 05/06, 14/07, 15/08, 01/11/2017. 25th May is a public holiday but the school will be open and lessons will take place normally.

The school will be closed from 18/12/2017 until 07/01/2018.

Insufficient number of participants

It may happen that there are not enough students of a level to create a homogeneous group. In this case IDIOM will apply the following alternatives:

- EXEC: you are alone, you will receive 2 private lessons per day (morning or afternoon) + 4 lessons per day in a larger group.

- INT: you are alone or 2 participants, you will receive 2 (semi) private lessons per day (morning or afternoon) as well as 4 lessons per day in a group of a slightly different level or 3 hours of self-study, guided and corrected by a teacher.

- SIC: you are alone or 2 participants, you will receive 3 times per week 2 (semi) private lessons per day (morning or afternoon) as well as 2 lessons per day in a group of a slightly different level or 1h30 of self-study, guided and corrected by a teacher.

- BUS: you are alone, you will receive 4 private afternoon lessons.

- ABI: you are alone or 2 participants, you will receive 2 (semi) private lessons per day as well as 4 lessons per day in a INT group or 3 hours of self-study, guided and corrected by a teacher. You are 3 participants, you will receive 4 lessons per day in a ABI group as well as 2 lessons per day in a INT group or 1h30 of self-study, guided and corrected by a teacher.

- SP: you are less than 5 participants of the same level, you will be mixed with other students of the school in an INT course. The number of afternoon activities varies according to the number of participants in the programme (2 afternoons instead of 4).

- FFT: you are alone or 2 participants, you will receive 2 (semi) private lessons per day (morning or afternoon) as well as 4 lessons per day in a group INT or 3 hours of self-study, guided and corrected by a teacher. You are 3 participants, you will receive 4 lessons per day in a FRENCH FOR TEACHERS group as well as 2 lessons per day in a group INT or 1h30 of self-study, guided and corrected by a teacher.

Non respect of dates for students with elementary level for the group courses

Students with elementary level who wish to book an EXEC, INT or SIC course must respect specific starting dates. If a student with this level does not respect these dates, IDIOM cannot be held responsible if there is no group of an adequate level and will not offer any compensatory private lessons or refund. The student can, of course, pay a supplement to transform his group course into individual private tuition. We remind you that we do not run group courses for complete beginners but students of this level can book private tuition (IND20, 30 …) and start whenever they wish. Once they reach an elementary level, they can then join a group course.

Special starting dates for elementary level (group courses): 09/01, 30/01, 20/02, 13/03, 03/04, 24/04, 15/05, 06/06, 19/06, 03/07, 17/07, 31/07, 14/08, 28/08, 11/09, 25/09, 16/10, 06/11, 27/11/2017.

Insurance

Every participant has to subscribe an individual insurance in his home country in order to cover the risks during his journey and stay. If the participant’s personal belongings and values are not insured against theft, loss or damage, IDIOM will in no case be held responsible. For students under 18, IDIOM will send a release that must be signed by their parents and sent to the school before the course starts.

Payment

Full payment should be made at the latest on the first course day without any cost (bank charges, etc.) to IDIOM. You will find our bank coordinates on the invoice.

Visa

If a Visa is necessary, all fees must be paid before any confirmation from IDIOM is given. These fees will be refunded if the Visa is refused.

Cancellation/Modification policy

In case of cancellation after booking and confirmation procedure, the registration fee of 60 € (incl. VAT = 72 €) is due as well as the placement fee of 35 € (incl. VAT = 42 €) if accommodation was booked. In case of cancellation between 7 and 13 days before the course starts 100€ (incl. VAT = 120 €) as well as the booking fee of 60 € (incl. VAT = 72 €) and 35 € (incl. VAT = 42 €) placement fee will be invoiced, if this service was booked. Last minute cancellation (6 days and less before course starts): no refund, course and accommodation services remain due. In case of modification of a booking (change of course/dates or type of accommodation) we will invoice an additional fee of 10€ (incl. VAT = 12 €).Any course that has already started is entirely due and cannot be refunded. This also applies in case of absence at the starting date of the course.

If a student decides to leave or change his/her host family in the middle of a week, the entire week will be paid to the first family.

The school can decide, whenever necessary, to exclude a student from class and accommodation in case of inadequate behaviour.
