Making the downpayment mentioned on the proposal means acceptance of the proposal and sales conditions:
1.1. We will email you the confirmation of your reservation, including a price proposal for the total cost.
1.2. We guarantee your reservation with a down payment for an amount mentioned on the final price proposal. The rest of the course fees should be paid upon starting the second day of the course. We accept debit/credit cards, PayPal and bank wires. Payments via PayPal or other platforms cannot be used for payment of the balance due to local tax regulations. Once the down payment has been paid, your stay with us is guaranteed.
1.3. ANDERS LANGUAGES is not liable in any cases of force majeure or for unlawful acts on the part of the students, nor the consequences they might bring on.
1.4. During free days, when courses are not offered but accommodation is included, meals are not served. Nevertheless, if you want to prepare yourself a meal, you are free to use our kitchen, where food is available during the weekends. Another option might be the restaurants, of various price ranges, available nearby. Some of them feature home delivery service.
1.5. Accommodation the night before the immersion start and/or the night after ending the program can be included or not, depending on the program. Make sure to check your final price proposal for details.
1.6. No classes are given during official holidays in the country where your immersion is offered. Nevertheless, we will reschedule these lost days during your stay, so you won't lose classes you've paid for. For an overview of local holidays, please contact us.
1.7. We guarantee that we will do all we can to help the client to achieve his or her learning objectives. However, our obligation to the client regarding the learning of a foreign language is limited to an obligation of due care, and the client alone is responsible for the results achieved.
1.8. Any additional service, discount, request or change in the program should be included in the proposal as the program and the amounts charged will be based on the proposal.
1.9. We do not accept any liability for physical or material harm caused by third parties operating ground transportation, or by hidden defects or inherent risks in products or services bought from third parties in order to offer our services.
1.10. The client's Passport, checking entry requirements to the country, and if required, a valid visa is the client's responsibility.

Locations changes are subject to availability.
2.4. In no case will money be refunded once the course has started (except for the money back guarantee).
2.5. Unconditional, money back guarantee. We know our business and how to maintain satisfied clients.

To claim the money-back guarantee, you need to have completed the first day of your immersion.

- When you want to reschedule your immersion, you can only do so 30 days before the new starting day.

- You have 12 months after the original starting day to reschedule.
- Each booking can be rescheduled only once.
- If there has been a fee increase by the time you rebook, you will be required to pay the balance due (if applicable) plus the difference between the original and new fees.

2.8. Refunds are NOT possible. We highly recommend to insure your trip if you have no access to credit card purchase protection. Of course, we will work with you and your insurance company or credit card provider to recover your deposit. If your claim for a deposit is successful, a new booking will require a new deposit. It is a consumer's responsibility to insure against unforeseen events. This goes for cars, houses, health, and travel.
