The organisation was very good. The people from the school helped where they could, and they could always. The apartment was very big and so was my room. They always managed to give me more than I expected. Another good thing is, that you can go to the internet in school, whenever you want.They give you a cellphone with a prepaid card so anyone can call you and you feel less lost (and safer) in that big city

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Try to be a local instead of just a tourist (for example in ((modest)) clothing): you'll show more respect that me, you'll be more respected yourself, and you'll meet not just annoying tourguides but mainly lovely Egyptians!

Good location (though it seems to be far out of the city centre), good quality of teaching and as i said a helpful & friendly staff. They even surprised me with a birthday party!

Come to Egypt for a longer stay so you have enough time to explore this amazing country, beside all the things you visit in Cairo of course.

The Centre`s location outside of the tourist areas makes it an ideal place to get in contact with locals. Students should make use of local people`s friendliness as an aid to practice theirs listening language skills.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I made a quite pleasant experience with taking the minibus to the Metro station. "Taxi" is often the only English word taxi drivers know and they do not have any knowledge/imagination of a street map. Although the school/apartment is very close to the President's palace one should think, taxi drivers would recognize the place on a map! But instead they try to read the name of the street in Western letters.

The Arabic Language Center is a small but a very fine school where you'd like to go to. Organization and teaching meet international standards in an African city. As a real beginner for the Arabic language you should be aware that you have to practice a lot at home. What I particularly liked very much was the internationality of the students which was maybe due to the starting date of the course: 24.12.04: German, Swiss, Italian, American/Iranian, Portuguese, Pakistani and Japanese. Being in an apartment with 3 other women we spoke all together 9 languages. I personally speak fluently English, French + Italien; Arabic is my 4th foreign language. Leisure organised by the school depend on the interest of the students.

I Liked
