The fee for any language courses is $280 per session, which includes 9 weekly lessons on Wednesdays. It must be paid in full by the registration deadline. It does NOT include the textbook, which can be purchased from Amazon through our webpage Textbook.

Payment can be made online using the PayPal button upon completing the online registration form. There is a $10 electronic transaction fee for payment made by credit card.

A full refund of the tuition may be obtained if a student withdraws at least ten days before the registration deadline. No refund can be issued anytime thereafter.

A credit may be applied to the following session. The credit is forfeited if not used within 3 months.

Discounts, partial or pro-rated payments are not allowed.

It is not possible to grant a partial refund for missed or canceled lessons.

Cancellation of a Course
Courses that don't have a sufficient enrollment are subject to cancellation. In this case the student can move to another class or take a credit for a future course or receive a full refund of the tuition.

Cancellation of a Lesson or Change of Day
School AMICI reserves the right to cancel a lesson should it be necessary due to severe weather or other exceptional circumstances, such as an unexpected absence of the teacher. Each student should provide a daytime phone number where to be reached. If a class is cancelled, School AMICI will make every effort to contact all students by e-mail in a timely fashion. It may or may not be possible to make up for a canceled lesson on another date. Occasionally lessons may be moved to a different day due to other events scheduled at school.

Classes are not in session when Cincinnati Public Schools are closed.

Change of Course
Only during the first week of the session a student may request to the school director to be moved to a different course, provided that seats are still available.

Certificate of Completion
A student is eligible for a Certificate of Completion upon passing a written test at the end of the course. This test is optional and is not required in order to enroll in a higher course level.

Smoking, Eating and Phone
No smoking is permitted on school’s premises. Food and beverages are prohibited in all classrooms. The use of cellular phones during the lesson is strictly limited to emergencies.

Classes are held on Wednesday evening at the Academy of World Languages (AWL), 2030 Fairfax Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio 45207. Free parking is available to all students.
