Frequently Asked Questions


We have provided answers to commonly asked questions.


“BumbleB” is a play on words. We named it “BumbleB” from the cute little bumblebee insect.

The most significant difference is that the same instructor has run and operated the school for over ten years. This stability and experience have helped students build confidence in English, think critically, and be curious about the world around them.

In addition, we focus on student’s progress in English and strive to help each student reach their potential. We understand that each student has different learning abilities and interests, and we offer support and encouragement to help them achieve their potential.

The best students are those who can learn actively and not as passive learners.  We encourage students to contribute in class and use the English that they know. When learning a foreign language, especially English, students need to overcome the embarrassment of making mistakes. That is why we teach students to look at things from different perspectives and express themselves in their own style. 

Kids lessons start in the afternoon on weekdays. We also offer lessons on Saturdays. For older students and adults, we provide lessons later in the evening and on Saturdays. Lessons for adults during the day is possible, when the schedule permits.

No, there are no semesters or class terms.  Students can enter our school or leave at any time of the year. However, please let us know 30 days in advance if a student will be leaving BumbleB English.

If a student is unable to attend a lesson, please let us know as soon as possible. Lessons can be transferred to another class day if the school is notified at least one day before the lesson. Please note lesson cancellations on the day of a lesson will not be eligible for a transfer lesson or a refund.

It is becoming more difficult to provide a transfer lesson.  For onsite students, if space is available, you can enter an existing lesson. For private lesson students, we will offer a refund in the subsequent invoice. Refunds are only available if cancellation occurs at least 1 day prior to the lesson.

Most classes use affordable industry-standard materials that are made for English language learners. BumbleB English can provide the materials or students can purchase the materials directly.
