What are the limitations on choosing lessons?
For better planning and subsequently better service to you, Interlead-Experts.com has put some basic limitations when choosing your lessons. For Group Lessons, you need to purchase at least 5 lessons, starting from Lesson 1 of your chosen Course. The lessons you choose,have to be consecutive. For example, you cannot choose Lesson 1, 5, 6, 8, 10. You need to choose Lesson 1,2,3,4,5 and then continue from there. For Private Lessons, you can choose to buy only one lesson but, it needs to be the first lesson of your chosen Course and then move from there to the next one. Again, you cannot skip any lessons in between as the Course is structured in a certain way so that you can learn better.
Who keeps a record of what I have purchased?
Whenever you login into your account, under My Orders, you will be able to see all the lessons you purchased. Please note that these are the lessons you purchased. Your attendance for these lessons is kept by our Admin Team and you can ask for it by email if necessary. Also, next to each lesson you already bought,under Courses, there will be a tick next to it.
Can I buy a combination of Group and Private Lessons?
Yes. There is no limitation on this but it is recommended to attend a certain Group or Private Course step by step to avoid possible confusion. You can set the speed of the program from one lesson per week to one lesson per day if you wish.
How much time is allowed between the purchase of a lesson and the booking to attend it?
You have a maximum of 3 months to book an appointment for a lesson you purchased. After this period, the lesson will be cancelled and no refund is made. If there were serious unforeseen circumstances for not booking the lesson, please contact the Admin Team.
How do I attend a lesson after I have purchased it?
The system will ask you to make a booking for a specific time slot at the time of purchase. After you pay for the lesson, a link for a webinar will be sent to you by email. At the specific day and time, you can attend the lesson by simply pressing on this link. Alternatively, when the payment is made, a new button named WEBINAR will appear next to the specific lesson under Courses. Simply press this button on the right day and time and the Host Instructor will admit you in the lesson.
How can I interact during the lesson?
Interlead-experts.com webinars are live and you can always speak when you wish, or you can use the Chat to send a message. It is important however to note that interruptions must be kept at a minimum and comments or questions must be brief.
Do I have to turn on my camera during the lesson?
No. It is not compulsory to have/use a camera but, it is recommended as it makes the lesson more natural and more effective.
What can I do with an Interlead-Experts.com Certificate?

The Certificate will prove to any interested party that you command the specific English Language level mentioned. You can use it for Employment purposes, for admission in academic institutions or for any state or local authorities. After you have completed a certain level, you can also choose to take an internationally recognised English examination such as IELTS and others.
If I choose to join a group, how long do I have to wait until a group is formed?
Our Groups are quite small (usually 3 persons) so under normal conditions you should be able to join a group in a few days. The maximum waiting time in any case is set to 2 working weeks. After this period, if there is no group available, you will be entitled to a full refund, or you will be offered private lessons at the price of group lessons.
What if I decide to cancel after I have paid?
No refunds are made after purchase unless there are extreme circumstances. You can keep the lessons you purchased in your credit until the end of the calendar year (31st of December). For other arrangements, please contact our Admin Team for a possible solution.
Is e-learning as effective as in-class lessons?
E-learning can take many forms: non-interactive pre-recorded video lessons, non-interactive live webinars, interactive live webinars and others. We provide live, real-time, fully interactive webinars based on an advanced e-learning platform which provides learning tools such as whiteboard, screen sharing, chat, file exchange, video etc. Our webinars are completely comparable with in-class lessons and this is certified by many experts who believe that the right form of e-learning is sometimes better than traditional in-class lessons as it provides a private, comfortable and friendly environment for the student and it saves a lot of hassle and transportation costs.
What software and hardware do I need?
You only need a smartphone, or tablet or lap-top or PC and a good internet connection. Lap-top and PC are highly recommended as the screen is bigger and you will be more comfortable to watch the lesson. Also, a fixed connection is much better than a Wi-Fi if possible. You do not need to download or install any software.
