Your Global Teacher Exchange can indeed be extended but under certain conditions. AIESEC, The company you're working with, and yourself must agree to this extension's terms and length. However, this agreement cannot exceed 78 weeks; both exchange participants and opportunity providers can request opportunity duration extensions.

If an extension of the Global Teacher duration, the company or institution will need to pay extra fees. The amount of the fees will vary since it will be decided according to their contract with the AIESEC Entity.

However, the exchange participant (YOU) does not need to pay any new fees to the AIESEC office in the home entity for the extension, since this is the same opportunity. Finally, to clarify, an extension can only happen within the AIESEC opportunity in which the exchange participant is already realized (currently on exchange).
