Ahlan courses start every two weeks on Sunday, with some exceptions noted below. In the case of a public holiday at any point during the course, the missed hours will be made up for through additional classes before or after the holiday, EXCEPT Eid el-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.

In the case of a public holiday at any point during a course, missed days will be discounted from the overall course price. In the case of bad weather conditions (snow or heavy rain), the government sometimes declares all public and non-public offices closed. In such circumstances, which are quite rare, we can’t take responsibility for cancelled classes and immediate rescheduling is not guaranteed but the school will offer compensation classes during the student’s stay, if possible, or via Skype.
