Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Make full use of tape and book together
Other comments: 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.
As a lesson was explained carefully, I could understand very well. I booked a group course though, I was offered a one-to-one lessons as another student cancelled. I enjoyed very much because I could talk about each country and understand the difference. He took me for sightseeing after school. We visited many monuments such as the Great Pyramid at Giza

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The staff were always ready to help you. You can ask anything to enjoy Egypt and to know Egypt. Teachers and staff are very kind and friendly.
Other comments: Both the school and the apartment where you live are in the center of a residential area, so it is possible to experience real Egypt. Being close to a subway station and big streets, it was very easy to access to downtown and convenient for tourism. The neighbors were really friendly and kind also.
