Services in learning of foreign language: how to choose firm?
If you are going to learn a foreign language abroad, then the choice of the company providing similar services is extremely responsible business. When the foreign language is learned without separation from the house, the maximum trouble - low-quality teaching, and an issue is resolved very simply. But here if you appeared far from the homeland, then troubles can be very various, beginning everything from the same low-quality teaching and finishing with lack of housing.
Plus of nowadays is that there is a lot of a various language course and schools. Minus - eyes run up. When it was necessary to choose a maximum from three options, it was much simpler: all knew from what party on this sandwich oil. When options three hundred three, the probability of a mistake increases repeatedly. But, having taken certain precautionary measures, the mistake can be avoided.
The best - existence of recommendations at the company, the providing service in learning of foreign language abroad. It is desirable to contact those people who already used services of this company, to ask them on nuances of contractual relationship, on quality of the provided services, on quality of teaching, stay conditions abroad and so on.
It is ideal if the similar recommendation is made by well familiar person therefore for a start it makes sense to ask friends and acquaintances who learned a foreign language abroad. Even if none of them used a similar type of service, perhaps, they will have acquaintances who went abroad for learning of foreign language.
If among ““ the referee is not, then there is always a universal stick - a lifesaver - the Internet. People who will be able to recommend this or that firm using services interesting you, it is possible to find at thematic forums.
However, here it is necessary to be vigilant: instead of the ordinary interlocutor who honestly went abroad on a language course you can come across the manager of any company providing the corresponding services. And, certainly, in this case it is difficult to speak about objectivity of the obtained information. Therefore it is not necessary to finish inquiries only on one person (if it is only not your good acquaintance). For receiving a full picture it is necessary to ask as much as possible people and to collect information on several firms. You should not feel sorry for time spent on inquiries, its economy can turn back further monetary losses, apart from losses of time where big, than saved. And it is not necessary to speak about torn nerves.
Unfortunately, the recommendation is not always available. For example, none of acquaintances learned a foreign language abroad, and even on the Internet there were no people from your city who would use similar service. Hard case but not deadly.
Pay close attention to companies which offer learning of foreign language abroad. Compare their prices, programs, conditions . You will choose the most suitable for you. Check - how long ago there is a company. To address to recently opened firms it can be not too good choice: there is no guarantee at all that it is really high-quality services, but not usual deception.
Check black lists of firms - usually such it is possible to find in the Internet. Those who were already deceived by this or that company very often blacklist firm not to allow them to deceive further.
Pay attention - whether the company has the website on the Internet . The solid firms having positive history have the similar websites. Moreover, via the website it is possible to study also the list of the offered services, programs of training, the prices, conditions of contracts, and in many cases even to sign such contract for rendering services. On the website of good firm it is possible to gather a lot of useful information on the questions interesting you. Lack of the website is a disturbing call - presently universal use of high technologies and the Internet swindlers do not get the website generally.
It is necessary to notice that existence of the website is not a guarantee of conscientiousness of firm at all, but it is plus.
It is worth visiting offices of several firms (pay attention to registration of rooms and employees - illiterate employees and poor office are unambiguously minus), to study contracts which they offer. Special attention - to penalties. Usually somehow forget about it, carried away by the list of the offered services. However, if the firm insists on the minimum penalties in return in case services do not correspond to the declared quality, then where a guarantee that they really correspond?
Consider that in contract everything has to make a reservation, the most slightest nuances. For example, if it is that abroad the full board - the place is provided to pupils for accommodation and food, then it is necessary that it was included in terms of the contract with the most detailed description. Certainly, you should not reach drawing up the menu, but it is necessary to specify conditions of accommodation and food. Remember that the company which is really providing all advertized services is not afraid to introduce their description in the contract.
Do not forget to check - whether the firm has a license on this kind of activity. Where the firm is registered (for example, registration in your city is plus, registration in other place - minus, especially if in the contract it is specified that legal claims are submitted in the location of the defendant).
Undoubted plus is presence at this company of training programs not only abroad, but also in the homeland. Especially if these programs are qualitative and are in demand.
It is impossible to sign any paper at all, without having read the text. Including small print. Including all copies - everyone needs separate reading. Also you should not pay money if there is no confidence that this option - the fact that it is necessary for you.
And if there is opportunity, then it is desirable to go to a small trip and on the place to study all that is offered by the company of the house. And if everything arranges - it is possible to sign safely the contract and to go to distant distances, to storm tops of foreign language and mentality.
