FAQ

 

What happens if I miss a class?

Your teacher will email you the material they covered in class, so you will always know what’s going on even if you were not there.

If you pay the course in full ($480/course), we are happy to schedule one free private makeup lesson per package.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to attend a different group class to make up the lesson you missed.

 

I am going to miss one or more classes during the session. Will the class be prorated?

No more than one class per course can be prorated.

If you miss an additional class, we will not be able to offer you a free make up class.

 

How many students are in each class?

Our classes are always very small. For language classes, max class size is 8 students, but most classes average around 4 – 6.

 

Who teaches the classes?

The best of the best, of course. All our instructors are experienced Italian mother tongue. They were born and raised in the ‘Bel Paese’ of Italy.

 

How do I know which language level to choose?

You can find descriptions of each level under Adult -> Classes.

Please take our online placement test! You can find it on our home page.

If you have further questions, we are happy to help you figure it out! Just give us a quick call at (212).427.7770.

Also, if you start a class and realize the first day, you’re in the wrong level, we will help you transfer to a different class, free of charge. However, there is a $20 fee for mid-semester class changes.

 

What are your refund and cancellation policies?

All requests for full refunds (minus a non-refundable deposit of $40) must be submitted to Collina Italiana by mail, email or fax and received by Collina Italiana prior to the first day of class.

Pro-rated refunds are allowed after the first class but no refund is given after the second class or for missed classes. There is a $20 fee for mid-semester class changes.

The fee for Private lessons is charged in full if cancellation is made less than 24 hours in advance.

Refunds are issued by check or credit card.
