What happens in class?
A typical group class involves the review of homework assignments, speaking and conversation practice as well as instruction of the weekly course material. LFBK teachers assign weekly homework reviewing the most recent lesson and preparing the class for the following week.
What happens if I miss a class?
What if my schedule changes mid-semester and I can no longer make class?
Quelle déception! (a.k.a. What a ``bummer”!) But not a deal-breaker. If you are part of a level that has multiple classes running each week we will simply move you to an alternate time; If that is not the case, or the alternate option does not fit your needs, we will do what we can to make sure you don’t miss a French learning beat.
How do private classes work? Where do we meet and what times are available?
LFBK private classes are held either in person or online via Zoom or Skype.
You pick the pace of your classes (1x, 2x, 3x a week or more - depending on your instructor's schedule)
You pick the time and day of your classes. You can change the time and day from one week to the other (depending on your instructor's schedule)
Do you offer refunds?
Your French learning goals are ours too. You want to learn. We are here to help. Thus if there is a request for a refund - we want to learn more - no longer able to make class? Not meeting your goals? Confused? Frustrated? Let us know - we’ll do what we can to ensure satisfaction.
Do you have any kind of payment plans available?
Do you have discounts currently running? How do I find out about ongoing upcoming deals and sales?
I have studied French elsewhere - recently and/or in the not-so-recent past - what LFBK class level should I take? How do I know what is best for moi?
Contact us for a Placement Test. That is the best assessment of where to place yourself in our school community.
What if I have a question about my homework - can I get help from my teacher?
Do I have to buy a textbook?
No. For group lessons, we provide a textbook & audio files to serve as long term learning tool - a guidebook for your French language learning journey. Topical, accessible, attractive, and fun - all materials we choose to aide and facilitate our student’s education are done so with conscientious care. Your success and enjoyment is ours as well.
