The calligraphy course was interesting but too short. Cooking course for the gourmets.

I would have benefitted more from a more traditional textbook, with AV materials, a relevant vocabulary, and a clear study plan.

Positive aspects of school
The general atmosphere was excellent. The relationship between the students and the teachers' staff was very pleasant, friendly and professional. Beside language studies we have received a deeper insight into Egyptian and Islamic culture through well-organized free time activities. (eg.: a week-end trip to the Sahara.)rnThe other very important and useful factor was the unlimited free internet access both at the school and in the accomodation which made communication with family and friends back at home very easy and cheap.

It was rather difficult to purchase notebooks in downtown Alexandria. I would advise other students not to rely on buying stationary in Alex.
