Lesson packages on italki are valid for six (6) months1. All lessons should be completed before the expiration date.
A reminder will be sent to the student both one month and one week before the expiration date.
If no action is taken by either student or teacher before the package expiration date, the package will expire. The remaining italki credits in the package will be sent to the teacher, excluding italki's commission.
Note that the Package expiration date will not affect your upcoming lesson(s) you have successfully booked. However, if you only sent a lesson request, but it has not been accepted by your teacher, the package may still expire before your lesson date.
How do I extend a package?
A “Request Extension” button is available within 30 days before the package expiration date2.
Teachers and students each have ONE chance to request an extension of 1 month, 3 months, or 6 months.
A package can be extended with agreements from both teacher and student.
