Adult language classes are designed for people 13 years of age or older.
To register for a class, please send us a letter with your name, (your child's name if applicable), address, phone number, email address, and the class you are registering for, to the following address:
Bodhi Tree Center 5403 SE Center Street Portland, Oregon 97206
Please include with your letter a check or money order made out to the Bodhi Tree Center.
Adult language language classes cost $300* for 12-week classes meeting 2 hours a week; $225* for 12-week classes meeting 1.5 hours a week. Exceptions to this will be noted on the class description.
We accept payment by cash, check, and money order, but not credit card. Students must enroll/pay BEFORE the first day of class. We'll acknowledge receipt of payment and enrollment information as soon as we receive it.
Please note that a textbook is also required for all adult classes, and for children's non-beginner's classes. We'll have copies of the textbook available for purchase on the first day of class. You can purchase the book at that time, or with your registration.
Makeup classes: if a student cannot make the first class of an absolute beginners class, we provide a free half-hour make up class prior to the second class. Makeup classes after that are on a per-fee basis.
Class cancellation refund policy: If a class is canceled because there are not enough students, we will notify students who have enrolled/paid as soon as a decision has been made; we will schedule a refund payment of total tuition paid for the class.
Student drop refund policy: If a student decides to drop a class, they have until the end of the day of the first day of class to notify us of their decision. We charge $10 administrative fee for dropped classes, and a also a fee to cover the cost of first day of instruction. Because we keep our classes small and registration lean (up to the day before first class), we cannot honor refunds for dropped classes after first day of class.
* Rates quoted are for classes that have a minimum of 4 students. For classes with less than 4 students, additional fees may apply to keep the class open. Tuition fee does not include the cost of textbook/materials.
