Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
On what basis do you want a full refund if you have had 12 hours of lessons already please?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

when i booked the course i made it clear i needed an intensive course of 30 hrs to be taken over 1 week ,and the instructor agreed to this i have a recepit stating this ,the basis i want a refund is that he has failed to deliver the service i booked with him

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
Yes, that is true.
However, you have had 12 lessons and you do have to pay for that I'm afraid.
Also, he is not saying that he cannot fit you in. He is just saying its to be done at different times. Unless you made it a condition of the 'essence' in the contract that the lessons were to take place at a particular time I'm afraid the movement of times and dates is not a material breach striking at the heart of the contract.
If you want to cancel then he might well refund you the pro rata amount but he is entitled to be paid I'm afraid for the work he has done.
I'm very sorry if this is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
