Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take me to get from A1 to C1?

 A long time. Language training doesn’t happen overnight, and individual students will improve at different paces. The number of classroom hours will vary based on the abilities of your peers and the amount of time you and your classmates are willing to study a language outside of class.  In general, however, you can count on the following:

What happens if I miss a class?

Private and semi-private (2-to-1) lessons are made to be flexible, and cancelations can be made up to 24 hours in advance. We are unable to offer make up lessons for missed group classes, but we can certainly arrange additional private instruction at a special price if you feel as though you’ve fallen behind.

I’m going on vacation during my group course. Do I have to pay for those weeks?

We love vacation! If you are aware of your vacation dates prior to booking the class, we are happy to deduct up to two days of vacation from your bill.

I work a lot, and my hours are unpredictable. What is the best option for me?

Speakeasy has many students with busy social and professional schedules. If this sounds like you, your best bets are private courses or semi-private (2-to-1) lessons, which you can cancel up to 24 hours in advance.

When do your classes start?

SpeakEASY doesn’t stick with a semester-schedule. Instead, we have classes starting almost every week! Courses are organized on a rolling-basis, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you don’t see the right class for you.

Can I have a discount?

Every so often, SpeakEASY runs promotions, however we offer great rebates for referrals all year long! Refer a friend and get €20 off of your next class. Refer a company, and you could get as much as €500 off! Spread the joy!

How big are the classes?

SpeakEASY classes are small by design. Group classes range from 3-7 students, which allows for plenty of individual attention and an overall faster learning speed.

What is your teaching method?

SpeakEASY believes in both creating custom curriculum, and empowering our trainers to teach using their own best methods.  The majority of SpeakEASY’s courses utilize a 4-part balanced approach to language learning: listening, speaking, reading and writing.  Looking for something more specific? We offer specialty courses that focus on a single competency as well, such as conversation courses and writing workshops

Are books included in the price?

Books are not included in the course price or registration fee, however all of the recommended books are priced below €35 and are available from our local bookshop, Hugendubel.

Is my teacher a native speaker?

The majority of our teachers are native speakers of their teaching language. Those that are not native speakers have advanced degrees in the target language, and often have more than 10 years of teaching experience. We vet all of our teachers, and we know you are learning from the best!

How can I ensure I don’t miss any of Speakeasy’s extracurricular events?
