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. 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.

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. Our teachers are very busy and often need to leave after school clubs promptly to be on time to their next lesson.

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

11. In the event of a class not happening because the whole bubble/class needs to isolate due to a positive case of Covid in the class, we will always do our best to try and reschedule the lesson during the current term or the following term, or offer a lesson credit. If no arrangement can be found a refund will be given. The French and Spanish clubs’s dates are approved by the schools to Lingua Fanatics at the beginning of each term and the teachers are “allocated” to a school according to these dates. Please note, in the event of the school organising an activity after the term dates have been agreed (i.e. Sports Day, school trip, etc) no refund will be given.
