Package FAQs

Unfortunately that is not possible due to schedule restrictions and teachers limited availability.
If you have the necessary level to take the Plus Conversation module then it is possible to also take this course during the summer, however if you are a complete beginner or low beginner we are afraid that June, July and August would not be available periods as we cannot offer private lessons during those months.
