Should the Student choose not to accept alternative arrangements (after 2 months of class alternative arrangements) and request a full refund, he/she shall fill up Lingo’s "Withdrawal & Refund Form" and submit the duly signed original form by hand or scan copy to LINGO's front desk at our registered address as stated on our website or email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
