    Both of them can be used for extenstion of lessons but only 20 minutes ticket can be used for reservation.

    If your lesson is less than 20 minutes, the remaining minutes can still be saved and valid until midnight (KST) by the day.

    For reserved lessons, a lesson ticket will be deducted for making an appointment. If the tutor doesn't show up, it will be restored into your account. However, tickets will not be restored if student doesn't show-up.

    You must use all the tickets within the specified period.

    Please check the expiry date at [My Tutoring > My Lesson Ticket]

    USD 6 x 3 months x 8 (min. lessons) = USD144

    Refundable amount: USD432 - USD144 = USD288

    B) If you had taken lessons more than the "minimum lessons per month", refund will be done after deducting the lesson tickets had been used.
