Terms and Conditions
Last updated April 27th 2021
All rights reserved.
The Service is the https://www.learnadvancedenglish.com website (the “website”, the “Service”, “we”, “us”, “LearnAdvancedEnglish.com”, or “our”).
A “membership” gives students a certain level of access to the LearnAdvancedEnglish.com services, for a certain amount of time. The amount of service access depends on which membership you have chosen. Some require various amounts of money, some are free. Also known as a “subscription”.
In order to receive the LearnAdvancedEnglish.com services and use a membership, it is necessary to “register”. This means providing LearnAdvancedEnglish.com certain personal details such as your email address and name, as well as certain financial details if you are buying a membership. (Done through a secure payment provider.)
This is the term given to those who subscribe to LearnAdvancedEnglish.com. “Member” is also used.
This is the term given to those at LearnAdvancedEnglish.com who create and manage lesson material, and instruct students. They are chosen and qualified to do so under the terms of this agreement.
This is the term given to those that read and interact with LearnAdvancedEnglish.com content, but do not currently have a membership.

2) Use of website services
3) Class length

1. Membership duration, cancellation and refund
1.1 When students buy a membership, a recurring payment is automatically set-up: the monthly fee is automatically taken from the student’s bank on roughly the same day each month (the “renewal date”).
1.2 Students can cancel their membership at anytime, for any reason, by visiting their account page. When this happens, the membership will simply expire at the renewal date and no more money will be taken.
1.3 We do not offer refunds. There is ample opportunity for students to sample the lesson material at LearnAdvancedEnglish.com - every membership has a 14 day trial for a low price, for example. If students are happy, they simply continue to subscribe.
Students are not tied into lengthy contracts.
1.4 LearnAdvancedEnglish.com reserves the right to amend, discontinue or terminate our services under this agreement (these “Terms and Conditions”), at any time and without compensation - especially if you commit a breach of any of our terms.
- If any information provided by you is found to be untrue, inaccurate, out-of-date, or incomplete;
- If you act in a way that has brought, or could bring, LearnAdvancedEnglish.com in to disrepute;
- Other possible reasons are included in the rest of this agreement, especially in sections , , , , , , , , , , , , .
1.5 You can stop receiving our services at any time (which would terminate our agreement) simply by cancelling future payments on your “Account” page by clicking on: 'Subscriptions'. (https://learnadvancedenglish.com/account/)
If you are unable to do that due to technical faults, you can send us a written notice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: The email you send us to cancel your account will need to be sent from the email address you used to register with us, as well as including your username.
2. Use of website services
2.1 LearnAdvancedEnglish.com does not bear any responsibility for the quality of your Internet connection or equipment.
You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining equipment that is of the necessary standard to run the LearnAdvancedEnglish.com services – including hardware (such as computer or mobile device etc.), virus protection software, adequate internet connection services and hardware.
2.2 Some service users may also wish to join in parts of lessons that are “recorded live”. Should any student be chosen to participate, it will be necessary that they have adequate hardware, including adequate microphone and video recording devices (webcam), as well as a fast enough internet connection.
2.3 You agree that LearnAdvancedEnglish.com is in no way responsible for your performance on any test, relationship, or work or any other circumstance that requires English in any way.
2.4 You agree that LearnAdvancedEnglish.com cannot guarantee that its lessons are equivalent to any standard, certified or otherwise, offered by any other educator.
2.5 You accept that not everyone can, or will, be accepted to participate in “recorded live” parts of lessons. It is entirely at the discretion of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com.
2.6 You accept that not every piece of work or question from students will be used by LearnAdvancedEnglish.com. It is entirely at LearnAdvancedEnglish.com’s discretion which work is chosen to be corrected and displayed in lessons; it is entirely at LearnAdvancedEnglish.com’s discretion which student questions they choose to answer.
2.7 You accept that the questions and work submitted by students will not always be of the same quality from one lesson to the next. You also accept that there may sometimes be very little work and very few questions submitted by students to LearnAdvancedEnglish.com. You accept that this is beyond the control of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com and they shall not be held accountable for this.
You accept the efforts of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com to create lessons of reasonable quality from whatever submitted work and questions they receive from students.
2.8 You accept the efforts of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com to meet their guarantee of reasonable quality with regards “amount of time spent on each lesson” by LearnAdvancedEnglish.com. Meaning, the following:
We state that we will spend, on average, 3 hours per lesson. In real terms, for example, a “Bronze student” will be expecting 4 lessons per month, with 12 hours minimum per month spent by LearnAdvancedEnglish.com in total to research, create, post, answer questions, correct work, and submit further work.
You accept that it is at the discretion of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com how much time is given to students to submit work and answer questions; it also, therefore, at the discretion of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com how long it takes them to fulfil their “amount of time spent on a lesson” promise.
In certain circumstances, where student participation is low or less than a desired quality, LearnAdvancedEnglish.com reserves the right to compensate for this at their own discretion in order to meet their minimum time standard for each membership. For example, we may post extra lesson material in any given month.
2.9 Access to our website is provided on an “as is” and on an “as available” basis.
2.10 Students pay for memberships that allow them access to different lessons:
- Gold gives access to 9 lessons;
- Silver gives access to 6 lessons;
- Bronze gives access to 4 lessons.
The memberships run on a rolling monthly contract and renew automatically – until the student cancels their subscription. If a student cancels their subscription (see section [1.5]), they will still have access to the lessons made available to them during their time as active members for several months.
2.11 Your use of our website constitutes your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Consequently, any changes made to these Terms and Conditions will apply to your use of our website the first time you use it after the changes have been implemented. You are therefore advised to check this page every time you use our website.
If any part of the current version of these Terms and Conditions conflicts with any previous version(s), the current version shall prevail unless we explicitly state otherwise.
2.12 You may only use our website in a lawful manner and for lawful purposes:
- You must ensure that you comply fully with any and all local, national, or international laws and regulations that apply;
- You agree that you will treat the teachers, students and visitors at LearnAdvancedEnglish.com with respect and not use obscenities, or make threats (See sections  & );
- You must not use our website in any way, or for any purpose, that is unlawful or fraudulent; and
- You must not use our website to knowingly send, upload, or in any other way transmit data that contains any form of virus or other malware or any other code designed to adversely affect computer hardware, software, or data of any kind.
One or more possible actions we may take in response:
- Suspend or terminate your right to use our website;
- Issue you with a written warning;
- Take legal proceedings against you for reimbursement of any and all relevant costs on an indemnity basis resulting from your breach;
- Take further legal action against you, as appropriate;

2.13 LearnAdvancedEnglish.com reserves the right to revoke memberships and student access at any time and for any reason – though this will not be done without just cause (see section [1.4]).
2.14 LearnAdvancedEnglish.com reserves the right to refund members their money for any reason.
2.15 Only one person is permitted to use an account. If we suspect that multiple students are using the same account, we will immediately suspend the student account pending investigation.
2.16 You shall not, without the prior written consent of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com, re-sell, “sell on”, add charges, or sub-contract in any other manner the services of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com.
2.17 Use of our website and services is done entirely at your own risk. You are responsible for exercising caution with respect to learning material and content; and with respect to interacting with teachers, LearnAdvancedEnglish.com staff, visitors and other students.
2.18 We may alter and update our website (or any part of it) at any time. We may suspend or discontinue our website (or any part of it) at any time. We do not guarantee that our website will always be available or that access to it will be uninterrupted. If we suspend or discontinue our website (or any part of it), we will try to give you reasonable notice of the suspension or discontinuation.
3. Class length
3.1 It is at the discretion of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com how long a lesson will remain ‘open for student input’ – it could be a few days or a few weeks. Some factors influencing this decision includes how long it takes students to respond; how much students respond; and the teacher’s opinion whether the lesson has developed to a satisfactory conclusion.
4. Payment of fees
4.1 To receive access to lessons, students must buy a membership. All payments are processed through our third-party processor: Stripe.com.
4.2 Stripe.com is a secure process through SSL that accepts many major payment cards. If you are not able to pay with any of the cards accepted by our payment processor, you will not be able to have a paid membership.
4.3 The fees on the website remain valid until amended by LearnAdvancedEnglish.com. Should they change, you will be notified by mail, or by a prominent message on the home page.
5. Technical issues
5.1 The platform and software that LearnAdvancedEnglish.com is built on are all very reliable, experiencing very few problems. However, sometimes things happen beyond our control. If our website goes down, the lessons will simply be left open longer once everything comes back online, so the students will have the same amount of time. Don’t forget, students have access to the lessons they paid for even after their subscriptions expire.
5.2 LearnAdvancedEnglish.com cannot be held responsible for technical issues on the students’ side of things.
For any problems with the LearnAdvancedEnglish.com website, please email: email@example.com.
6. Respect, vulgarity and anti-bullying policy
6.1 LearnAdvancedEnglish.com is committed to helping students express themselves freely in English – to express language similar to native English speakers with colour, depth, beauty and creativity. In order to develop that ability, we must examine, de-construct and reconstruct English language usage in many different contexts. We must examine what and how other native English speakers express themselves – it is a place to experiment with language.
Not only does this mean the analysis of style, but we must also analyse different content too. This means investigating and expressing some of the many opinions that exist in the world. Some of these opinions do not match our own; some opinions expressed are damning and offensive to people, groups, and cultures – including our own.
At LearnAdvancedEnglish.com, whether we agree with opinions or not, we are examining and experimenting with language. During lessons, for the sake of learning language, students will be asked to construct sentences expressing a variety of opinions – some of which they may not agree with. At LearnAdvancedEnglish.com we believe we have a right to have our own opinons, to change and grow those opinions, and to disagree with the opinions of others. We aim to make LearnAdvancedEnglish.com a safe place to express opinions in an appropriate manner.
Why is this important? LearnAdvancedEnglish.com is built upon the idea that, doing the work to build and maintain opinions means actively seeking out information and ideas that challenges your opinions and beliefs, and not just holding on to information that confirms what we believe we know.
The art of “learning to argue from both sides” is not only a discipline to strengthen your opinions and beliefs, but also a wonderful way of strengthening your language and understanding of expression.
We feel it is necessary to demonstrate opinons that some may not agree with. This is purely to improve English expression and not intended to incite hatred. It does not necessarily reflect the actual opinions and beliefs of students or LearnAdvancedEnglish.com itself. In fact, as a student, and for the sake of learning language, you will be asked to express a variety of opinions in English that you don’t agree with. By becoming a member of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com, you accept that there will be language reflecting the opinons of different people in the world: past, present and future. Different opinions are important for complete language learning.
6.2 LearnAdvancedEnglish.com does not tolerate abuse to individuals, cultures, groups, nations, or races of people on our website. We expect and hope for an environment of peaceful study and kind exchange of ideas. We ask students to remember that this is a learning environment, and to be respectful of others.
6.3 Sadly, abusive behaviours do happen from time-to-time, though we hope it never happens here. Also, people make mistakes and cause hurt unintentionally. If you experience any offensive, abusive, threatening or hate-filled communications based on race, sex, ethnicity, religion, or abusive in some other way on our website that is beyond the boundaries of reasonable teaching and description, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
6.4 As part of our respect policy LearnAdvancedEnglish.com does not encourage profane or vulgar language. We ask students not to use any profane or vulgar language: swear words, including swearing using deities (God, Jesus, Allah, etc.), and vulgar sexual references. With all the technique and ability of expression you will gain from LearnAdvancedEnglish.com, it will be straight-forward to learn these things effectively in your own personal studies. We recognise that all emotions are valid and we should learn how to express them in creative and effective ways with our language.
6.5 One outcome for the use of inappropriate language by students is the suspension or termination of their account.
6.6 We also do not tolerate the use of nudity from students posted on, or sent to, LearnAdvancedEnglish.com. This behaviour would also warrant the termination of students’ accounts (pending investigation).
6.7 As stated elsewhere in this policy: LearnAdvancedEnglish.com reserves the right to revoke memberships and student access at any time and for any reason – though this will not be done without just cause (see section [1.4]).
6.8 LearnAdvancedEnglish.com sometimes links to pages on other websites. Though we take care to only link to clean, responsible and respectful webpages, their content is ultimately out of our control. The content of that page might change in the future without our knowing, and there might be other pages on the website that are false or offensive in some way.
We take no responsibility for the content of other websites. Students are responsible for determining if the content is agreeable. The student is also responsible for installing their own antivirus and safeguarding software.
7. Questions and information
7.1 During lessons students will have many questions about the subject material – these will be answered in the lessons themselves.

9. Learning quality
9.1 At LearnAdvancedEnglish.com the teachers model English reflecting a “Native English standard” in structure, form, language, style, vocabulary, punctuation, spelling and grammar (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics). You will see this in their examples, the lesson synopses, the corrections of students’ work, and the lesson texts that the teachers at LearnAdvancedEnglish.com have personally written.
9.2 You accept that LearnAdvancedEnglish.com takes no responsibility for other examples of English you may see or hear whilst interacting with our website. Accepting any of these other examples of English as if they were a “Native English standard” is done at your own risk – such as: questions, work and other communications from students that have not been corrected by a LearnAdvancedEngilsh.com teacher; also the content of websites to which LearnAdvancedEnglish.com links.
9.3 You accept that “Native English standard” for the sake of these Terms and Conditions, and the expected operation of LearnAdvancedEnglish.com, is not 100% faultless nor wholly reflecting any recommended textbook. However, it does mean that the teachers are of a “C2” standard according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). This is a recognised evaluation of language ability, with “C2” being the highest and most proficient standard. It is recognised that well-educated native English speakers also operate at this level, making LearnAdvancedEnglish.com teachers very capable.
9.4 You accept the credentials of the LearnAdvancedEnglish.com teachers. Whether CELTA trained, IELTS, TEFL, TESL, TESOL, a degree in English.
