  2. hi, i am keen on the course commencing on 31st March. However, as I will be travelling, i will miss 2 lessons. is there any way i can make up for them? in addition, are there more advance levels after this 10 week course?

    • We do not provide make-up lessons but you may want to come earlier than usual for the next available session/lesson for some extra tuition for you to catch up with the rest of the class.

      Anyway, as our class size is small and the learning strategies are quite flexible.

      However, if you are too busy i.e. never done your homework or missing more than 2 sessions then we cannot help.
