In December, I bought a groupon voucher for 10 lessons of basic Korean with Cambridge language school. It is the first time I seriously regretted buying a voucher.
The management of the school is in shambles. They sold more vouchers than they should and have no way of managing the intake.
I tried emailing in Jan… 2 times in 2 weeks since I did not receive any confirmation for the class (which was suppose to come in Jan) from them after I went down to pay for the text book. No response. I was so afraid that the school closed down or something. I called umpteen times and when I finally got them. Guess what, they told me the wrong class timing. With tons of schedule changes on my part, I manage to free my mondays for classes. It was suppose to start last week but when I called them to double confirm on the day itself, they said the teacher was not in Singapore. What!!? Can you imagine if I did not call? Wasted trip! No news throughout the week and I called today. The lessons are postponed again. If I did not call, it would have been a wasted trip too!
I decided to buy the voucher because I thought it would give me a headstart during my lull period before I start my NEX lessons and the groupon lessons should have ended before I start my NEX lessons if the groupon class started in December! Sigh! Now both classes would start at the same time with my crazy work schedule. RIP to me.
I do not like to be negative here but its too much. This is purely my personal opinion and rant: Please do not get the 10 lessons class from Groupon – Cambridge language school and save yourself from some pain and hassle. Till now (3rd month), they can’t cope!
I hope the teacher is better than the admin! Rant end.
