I understand I must be on time for class, attend every class, and contact my instructor if I must miss a class (due to sickness, a child's sickness, emergency etc...)
I understand I cannot miss more than 3 classes per two (2) month period.
I understand if I miss more than 3 classes, I may be dropped from the class.
I understand if I will be out of town or the country for several weeks, I must tell my instructor and take a post-test before I leave.
If I do not follow this contract, I might not be able to attend future classes.

Important note from instructor: Proficiency in English can take up to 600 hours or more of concentrated study and practice.
Since our class meets 4 hours per week (minus holidays) and there will be about 34 weeks total for the year, if you attend every class, that will provide opportunity for 136 hours of instruction in class. It would be to your advantage to spend an additional 4-6 hours per week studying on your own using a variety of resources including our class website. This will double your hours to 240 + of English language study. As an adult learner of English, your potential to advance your language skills begins in the classroom and continues as you go out into your community, workplace, or school to practice what your are learning. It's up to you!
