Your privacy and security are important to us!

We take your privacy and security very seriously.  Therefore, we have chosen to use PayPal exclusively for all checkout procedures.  Paypal is preferred by more merchants than any other processor due to its highly encrypted and secure system.

Why PayPal?

First, your financial information is not entered on our site, and we NEVER see your financial information.  We work on bringing you excellent language learning classes and leave PayPal to do what they do best – encrypting and securing your payment for ultimate protection. Second, you can use your preferred payment of choice.  PayPal accepts all major credit cards, and for customers who have an account, additional payment methods are available, such as bank transfers or direct payment from PayPal accounts. Third, no PayPal account is required!  If you already have a PayPal account – great – enter your password and fly through checkout.  No account?  No problem!  PayPal no longer requires users to have an account.  They will, of course, ask if you would like to create one, but there is no pressure to do so, and your decision in no way affects your order.


The only personal data we store is what users have provided us with out of a contractual necessity to book and teach classes and keep students informed.  This information may include names, email addresses, etc., but as noted above, it does NOT include financial information.  We do not pass any personal information on to third parties unless it is essential for completing an order — such as processing a payment (Paypal).  You can update your data via your account settings anytime or contact us with questions through our online contact form.  We only retain data so long as it is necessary for processing orders and maintaining contact with students.  By using this site, you agree to these terms and the use of your data as noted above and in more detail below.
