Elise Lines, Lingua Fanatics, 83 Butterfield Road, Wheathampstead, Hertfordshire AL4 8PX, Tel 01582 620 554 (“the teacher”) and the parent/guardian of the child/ren being enrolled or the person enrolling (for adult classes).

1. All fees in relation to the full term should be paid prior to the start of term and all payments are non-refundable.  Failure to pay for classes may result in your place being given to another child. If payments are late please contact your tutor, otherwise an additional weekly late fee of £1.00 per week may be added.

2. All fees are subject to revision from time to time, reasonable notice being given in respect of any such revision.

3. For La Jolie Ronde classes, all textbooks and audio materials are an integral part of the course. No pupil is allowed to continue with the lessons if the relevant La Jolie Ronde book and audio material has not been purchased for him/her. This is to ensure the very high quality of the La Jolie Ronde method. Each one lasts approximately three terms (up to six terms for Les Aventures de Minou et Trottine/Las Aventuras de Mifu y TIna). All books are to be purchased and paid for within the first two weeks of starting the course.

4. All fees must be made payable to Lingua Fanatics. Lingua Fanatics has taken out a licence to use the La Jolie Ronde method. If you wish to pay by cash, please make sure the money is in a sealed envelope with the name of your child and his/her group. The sealed envelope should then be given to the teacher.

5. No remission of fees will be given for absence, except when due to long illness – over four continuous weeks – and supported by a doctor’s note, or at teacher’s discretion. Fees will not be refunded after 2 weeks of the term.

6. Should you decide to withdraw your child or yourself from classes before the end of the school year, the teacher requires a half term’s written notice please.

7. The teacher reserves the right to require the removal of your child if he/she has not maintained satisfactory standards of conduct or whose presence in the class is held to be disruptive and undesirable and the teacher will notify you should this problem arise. Removal of your child will only take place as a last resort after all other avenues of help & support have been given.

8. During bad weather you are advised to contact the teacher before setting out to check whether the classes are running.

9. The teacher is only responsible for children within the classroom during scheduled class hours, and it is your responsibility to ensure that your child is collected on time.

10. Should your child suffer from a medical condition requiring special care please inform the teacher in writing at the enrolment stage.
