===============================
*No class week of July 1st-5th

===================================

All courses meet once a week for eight weeks.

Class size is limited to 15 people. Classes sell out fast (sometimes a month before the start date) and availability is first-come, first-served.

Our teachers employ a dynamic method that includes grammar and vocabulary but is focused primarily on spoken profiency and oral comprehension.

There are no make-up classes. On the first day of class, each student will receive a syllabus that lists the weekly assignments so you can keep up with your studies if you have to miss a class.

If you wish to cancel your registration, you must contact Idlewild by telephone or email at least seven days before the start date of your class to receive a refund.

If you wish to postpone your registration to a later session, you must contact Idlewild at least three days before the start date of your class to receive a credit toward a future session (good for one year).
