Lesson cancellations and changes

• We reserve the right to change the teaching location, time and teacher. If necessary, the course implementation format can be converted into classroom, online or multiform instruction. Changing the course implementation format does not affect the price of the course.
• If a course is changed or cancelled, we will inform you by text message, e-mail or phone. The student is responsible for keeping the contact information provided to us up to date.
• Our customer service is closed at weekends, which is why information about course changes or cancellations may come with a delay.
