Our Service
Our service offers virtual English classes with native English speakers, which are held by landline telephone, mobile telephone, or Skype and are designed to enable individuals who have previously studied English the opportunity to practice their conversational skills with a qualified instructor.

Eligibility to Use Our Website and Our Services
You are only eligible to use our Website and Our Services if you are an adult, who is at least eighteen (18) years of age and if you are fully able and competent to enter into and to comply with the terms, conditions, obligations, representations, and warranties set forth in these Terms of Use.

Service Terms

Classes
We offer individual classes in twenty-five (25) minute increments, group classes in fifty (50) minute increments, and specialized instruction courses in fifty (50) minute increments. Students will be matched with an instructor based on availability and his or her requirements, and will have the option to change instructors at any time in his or her sole discretion.

Scheduling; Delivery
We work with students to schedule in advance the date and time in which the classes are to be held. In the case of individual classes, instructors will call the student on the agreed upon Skype, mobile, or landline number. If an instructor is unable to reach the student, then he or she will try to reach the student on his or her alternate numbers; provided that, however, classes may only be held on the agreed upon Skype, mobile, or landline number. If the instructor is unable to reach the student within the first ten (10) minutes of the class, then the class will be cancelled at the student’s expense.

In the event that an instructor fails to attend a scheduled class or suffers telephone or computer-related technical difficulties during the scheduled class, then the class will be postponed and rescheduled for a new, mutually convenient date and time. Similarly, in the event of an outage that affects the Skype or mobile phone network, then the class will be postponed and rescheduled for a new, mutually convenient date and time. On the other hand, if the student suffers telephone or computer-related technical difficulties during the scheduled class, or an outage affects the student’s local or regional power or telephone network, then the class will be cancelled at the student’s expense.

Payments
Our current prices for services are posted to the Website and may be modified from time to time at our sole discretion. We typically sell our classes in blocks of eight (8), twelve (12), or twenty (20) hours, but we do offer customized packages upon request. Payments may be made by Paypal, Google checkout, or bank transfer. Payment for a particular class must be received prior to the scheduled date of that class.

Refund Policy
In the event that you become dissatisfied with our classes at any time, we always recommend that you try working with a different instructor. If you remain dissatisfied even after working with a new instructor, however, we are happy to refund all unused, amounts that you paid in advance to us for classes that were to take place in the future. We are unable to issue refunds for classes, which were held on dates that took place in the past.
