Terms and Conditions
Communikation Akoun & Scholten


Requirements for participation (general)

All offered classed are for adults. Exceptions are made for adolescents of 17 years of age, depending on the individual case. In this case we need a exclusion of supervision declaration of the parent or legal guardian. If desired, we create a special class offer for adolescents under the age of 17. All our regular classes are not suitable for adolescents for this age group.

Application and reservation of classes

Application for our classes is accepted in written form via our online application form or personally in our school and is binding. By written application participants obligate themselves to a full payment of class fees. After the deposit of 250 € for the booked language class is received, a reservation confirmation will be issued.

Payment of class fees

Booked language classes need to be paid in full and in advance at the latest by the first day of class. If fees are not paid by the first day of class no guaranteed right for the reserved class space exists, if not other conditions are agreed upon in written form and explicitly. Payment in full continues to exist independent of this agreement.

Method of payment

Payments in cash and deposits are accepted.

Deadline for cancellations

Cancellation of a booked class must be received in written form. The following fees will be kept: A: Cancellation up to 14 days before course start: 150 €. B: Cancellation up to 14 days before course start: 250 €. C: Later cancellation: no refund.

Liability and insurance

Communikation Akoun & Scholten is not liable for accident, illness or loss/theft of valuables. Participants need to contract their own insurances (health, accident and liability insurance). Participants are liable for damages caused.

Circumvention of participants

If participants are unable to attend in full or partially due to personal issues like health or visa problems, no claim exists to get the course fee refunded or attend a class at a later date. The course start can be postponed to the next possible or a later course start twice free of charge. After that, a new registration including the due fees is required.

Cancellation of classes by Communikation Akoun & Scholten

Communikation Akoun & Scholten are liable to cancel a language class up to 5 business days before start dates. In this case substituting classes are offered or fees/advance payments will be reimbursed in full without deduction of bank or processing fees.

Course books, learning material and certificate

Costs for respective class and learning materials are not included in class fees unless noted otherwise. At the end of the course participants will receive a certificate for participation in the course and the final test. A fee of € 30 will be charged for a second issue of the certificate.

Evaluation and class change

Participants will be evaluated by a test done by Communikation Akoun & Scholten and then placed in their respective levels. A change of class is only possible in exceptional cases and with the agreement of the teaching staff. No claims to a specific class time (morning, afternoon, evening) are accepted. Times will be determined by Communikation Akoun & Scholten.
