Booking
Once you have paid a deposit on bookalanguageschool.com, your booking request is communicated to your chosen school.

You are bound to the booking for 14 days from the date of payment of deposit or until the school accepts/rejects the booking. In the event that you booking is not accepted by the school or the school has not replied within 14 days, then Section 1 of the cancellation policy will apply and you will be entitled to a 100% refund of your deposit.
