OpenEnglish, found online at OpenEnglish.com, is a company which offers live English language classes to Spanish speaking students designed for convenience with classes offered 24 hours a day in virtual classrooms.
How Does It Work?
Students are able to learn English in small classes taught by certified American professors, who will offer proper native pronunciation and grammar, and who use teaching strategies which are intended to accelerate the learning process.
Students get to work and learn at their own pace, taking classes whenever it is most convenient to them. Students don't ever have to worry about being left behind or having scheduling conflicts.
Unfortunately OpenEnglish does not publish their full course costs, saying instead that they are willing to work with students to establish a variety of payment programs and payment methods. Students who need more specific information can contact an advisor for more details.
Students who realize that they are unhappy with the course or have something come up that make taking the classes problematic can cancel their course registration within the first 7 days of class in order to be eligible for a refund.
Students who cancel after the first 7 days of class have been completed will be charged a fee equivalent to two months' coursework as a cancelation fee. Students who have an emergency or other issue more than 7 days after the beginning of class can discuss the possibility of "freezing" their registration with OpenEnglish.
