Wow we have made it to the end of term, all be it online and but looking at the rising virus cases, I think we made the right decision to move all groups back to online learning. It has also enabled us give smaller groups a longer lesson of 1.5hrs. The online learning has not hindered progression and at the end of this term we celebrate Andrea's A2 Thursday evening class Grupo Honduras completing the A2 course and they plan to move on to B1 in January 2021 ¡olé!
The new term begins on 6th & 7th January for 13 weeks to 31st March & 1st April 2021. I have sent group (and some individual) emails about the plan for the new term. If in September you signed up to the 11 month DD plan you do not need to do anything, we will book you in for the new term in your usual group.
For those that need to re-enrol there are two ways to do this:
1: BOOK ONLINE
We are asking students to either pay a £25 deposit or set up a 4-month direct debit plan by 24th December 2020. All groups are open for booking on the website (under the adults tab) but this time it will only charge the £25 deposit when you book and I will invoice for the balance (where there will be an option to pay by card, BACS or set up a 3 month direct debit).
2: SET UP A 4-month DD
Please check in this week's email and the timetable if your group is planned to return to the classroom without Zoom attendance/recordings or with Zoom attendance/recordings or if it will remain online next term and choose the relevant DD plan below before 24th December. The first instalment will be charged on 31st December 2020.
We have set the timetable for the new term in the adult classes section of the website so either click the coloured text or take a look at the screen recording below. Classroom groups are planned to return provided there is no further lockdown or that we are not raised to tier 3 here in BANES. All students will receive a new term welcome email prior to the first lesson with info for groups returning to the classroom and new meeting links for those that will be online.
