DOES MY CHILD HAVE TO BE HOMESCHOOLED TO TAKE CLASSES WITH FHA?
No way! Although the majority of our students are a part of the homeschool community, we welcome all 7th through 12th grade students interested in learning a foreign language.
IS CULTURAL EDUCATION INCLUDED IN THE CLASS?
We include a weekly cultural component for our students enrolled in the standard or complete package. As the students' language skills develop, the cultural aspect is 100% in the target language which is much more exciting for the student and teachers!
WHAT IF MY CHILD MISSES A CLASS?
Not a problem! Depending on the package that you purchase, there are different options:
Basic Package: Students can follow the syllabus and study on their own or book a private lesson to catch up.
Standard Package: Students have access to all class materials as well as weekly class summaries to help guide self study. The standard package also includes a live review session before each exam.
Complete Package: Students have all the benefits of the standard package (above) as well as weekly office hours and access to recorded class sessions to watch on their own time before the next class. If that's not enough, students have a 50% discount on private lessons. We recommend students watch the recorded class and look over the class summaries and materials before booking a private lesson.
CAN I UPGRADE MY PACKAGE?
Yes! The upgrading fee depends on the amount of the course that has been completed when the upgrade is made.
Upgrade within 1st month of the course: Client will pay the full monetary difference between the package originally purchased and the upgraded package.
Upgrade within 2nd month of course: Client will pay 75% of full monetary difference between the package originally purchased and the upgraded package.
Upgrade within 3rd month of course: Client will pay 50% of full monetary difference between the package originally purchased and the upgraded package.
Upgrade within 4th month of course: Client will pay 25% of full monetary difference between the package originally purchased and the upgraded package.
**Upgrades are not retroactive. Students will only have access to the additional materials (class summaries and recordings) from the day they begin the upgrade. For example, 3rd month upgrades will not receive class summaries from months one and two.**
WHAT ARE YOUR REFUND AND RESCHEDULING POLICIES?
Students must give 24 hour notice when canceling or rescheduling a private lesson. If no notice is given, the lesson will be considered taken and the student will be charged accordingly.
Cancellation of a semester long class a month before the first lesson guarantees a 75% refund.
Cancellation of a semester long class 15 or more days before the first lesson guarantees a 50% refund.
There is no refund with cancellation of a semester long class within 15 days of the first lesson or after lessons have begun.
WHAT IF THERE ARE INTERNET PROBLEMS?
It is the responsibility of the student to secure a stable internet connection for class. However, if internet issues occur and the student has purchased a complete package, students will receive a recording of class to review on his/her own time. If by chance, the teacher cannot secure a stable internet connection for class, a make-up class will be rescheduled for a later time that fits the schedules of the majority of students.

WHAT AGE GROUPS ARE THE CLASSES CATERED TO?
Our classes are designed for middle and high school students. If you are interested in classes at the elementary level, please write us a quick note and we will create a special class once we have enough interest.
CAN PARENTS ATTEND CLASS?
Not every parent would like adults participating in their child’s class. However, we offer several options for parents/adults that will cover the same material but is geared towards the adult learner. This course depends on parent interest. If you are interested in classes as a parent, please write us a quick note.
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE A BOOK?
All material is provided during class. Depending on the package that you purchase, materials may or may not be accessed outside of class.
Basic Package: Students can view all class materials during class. They will have access to vocabulary study cards outside of class but will need to take copious notes on any other information.
Standard Package: Students have access to all class materials at any time through our learning management system.
Complete Package: Students have access to all class materials at any time through our learning management system.
