HONOR & ETHICS CODE 

Introduction

At MOVE Language, our primary focus is to develop your language skills so they can become a vessel for your personal and professional growth. We are wholly dedicated to helping you find recognition for your commitment so that you can become an inspiration for others who would like to take the next step in their language journey. 

You, our teachers, and support team are our most valuable assets, and our success requires that we create a foundation for the best experience possible.

For this reason, it is important that we’re clear on the academic conduct that we expect from our students. This conduct is based in morality, ethics, and integrity, and as part of the MOVE Language community, we expect that you embody these values as a student in our courses.

By enrolling in our courses, you agree to our Terms and Conditions for Students which govern the use of MOVE Language’s products and services. In this document, we will expand on the concepts and details outlined there as related to honor and ethics. 

Before we begin, let’s take a moment to review our mission and our foundational values.

 

Our Mission

To provide unmatched service and support for language-related services that exceed expectations, while also encouraging internal growth and development. 

 

Our values:

  1. A commitment to excellence: We will always put forth our best effort to serve our students. We believe that learning begins with respect and that fostering a sense of partnership between students and professors is the first step towards success. 

  2. Continuous improvement: Though we are teachers, we are also students. If we learn a better way, we will adjust. We believe in setting, and working towards, clear goals and expectations from the start. 

  3. Passion and agility: We are intensely focused on teaching in such a way that our students develop not only the necessary skills, but a love for the language itself. We aim to always be available for our students and to foster a sense of pride in their efforts. 

Remember that respect and professionalism start with the right attitude. This means being polite and civil when interacting with our team members and your fellow students. But it also means that you’ll take your learning journey seriously by putting forth your best effort to learn fairly and truthfully.

Course Policies

Intellectual Property and Confidentiality

We highly recommend that you avoid disclosing any of your own confidential information in your assignments and discussion forum posts (including intellectual property and "third party" confidential information, such as information about your employer that is not publicly available). It is your responsibility to avoid disclosing any information that is protected by any confidentiality undertakings that you may be a party to. We will ensure that all information is treated in accordance with our privacy policy, but we are unable to sign any additional confidentiality agreements or non-disclosure agreements. Although you are encouraged to draw on real-world experience during the course, it is up to you to remain cognizant of any legal restrictions you may be under. 

If, during the course, you disclose or create any intellectual property (for example, trademarks, designs, written materials, know-how, or other products of your independent thought, creativity, and intellectual effort), you accept all and any risks in relation to disclosure. This includes the risk that a fellow participant may use this intellectual property without your consent, or that disclosure weakens or erases any legal protections.

We will not use any intellectual property created by you and submitted in, or forming part of, your assignments, other than for internal research and development, course improvement, and similar non-commercial purposes without your written consent.
