*Please note, the school requires sufficient student numbers to start a class, so some classes may be subject to cancellation or may not run all year round. The minimum number of group class size is 4 students. If a class does not have 4 students, then students will be given options to enable them to continue studying.  This may be converting the tuition fees to semi-private lessons or adding their name to a waiting list until the minimum number is reached.  Usually however, two similar levels are combined into one class to avoid disruption or inconvenience for the students.
