Aspectos a tener en cuenta

Todas las clases poseen una duración de 45 minutos. ETC precisa un máximo de 14 alumnos por clase, sin embargo, siempre y cuando las clases y el equipamiento, alumbrado, calefacción y ventilaciones lo permitan, se reserva el derecho para dar uso de las clases alcanzando su máxima capacidad. Ninguna clase excederá de 18 alumnos.  Las clases podrán ser en horario de mañana o de tarde durante periodos de temporada alta.

Los estudiantes que asistan a un curso de Inglés General con 20 clases por semana, tendrán clases tanto por la mañana como por la tarde. Normalmente las clases son desarrolladas por las mañana entre 8:45 y 12:05, pero este horario no puede ser garantizado durante todo el año.  Durante los meses de verano, los estudiantes podrían tener clases en horario de tardes.

Los estudiantes que requieran un visado deberán asistir a un número de 15 horas de clase por semana como un mínimo (20 clases por semana).
