Class schedules: In some Language Centres classes may take place at the weekends. Students will continue to have two consecutive days off.

Exam class size: A minimum of 10 students is required for running an exam class. Public Holidays: In the event of a Public Holiday in your host country, the Language Centre will be closed, unless otherwise stated in the student pre-departure information, sent to you with your booking confirmation. Classes missed for Public Holidays will not be made up at a later date. Photography and film material: By accepting EFs terms and conditions, the participant accepts that EF freely can use all photography, film and sound material that have been created by EF and or by EF’s staff during the trip, without asking further approval from the participant. Cancellation Protection EF Cancellation Protection is charged at a one-time fee of $65 ($150 AY/MLY) at the time of booking and is non-refundable. This covers cancellations before departure due to illness, or illness in your immediate family. A doctor’s documentation is needed within 10 days of the claim. Re-booking Fee: With each request to change course towns, course dates, or type of accommodation after your initial enrolment, EF will charge you a re-booking fee of $100 which is payable immediately. This does not apply to students who request a change when extending their course. Travel and Medical Insurance Coverage: All students are required to have medical and accident insurance coverage.
