Understanding Languages, by Cecilia Iris Baldo
Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The standard format of the course includes classes from Monday to Friday and cultural activities on Saturday. Different starting days can be discussed. If a course does not reach the minimum number of students (4) expected, the course structure can be changed. To obtain certification of attendance to a course it is necessary to have attended at least 80% of the lessons.

Signing up

You are signed up to a course after filling in this form and receiving a confirmation email within one (1) week. The confirmation of registration is a document that shows you have been accepted. You don’t need to pay upfront to be considered “enrolled”. However, a compromise derives from signing up– either taking the course or paying 30% of the total cost of the course.

You will be considered enrolled after receiving the confirmation email. Please get in touch with us if you need an immediate confirmation.


Payment can be made through this website, via bank transfer or in cash right before the course. You don’t need to pay upfront to be enrolled, last possible time for paying is one hour before the start of the course.
