I booked an MSA course plus intensive teaching (3 plus 2 hours). Due to the fact that I was the only student in my level and that I was only staying for two weeks in Egypt, the school offered me private lessons in the afternoon (2 hours MSA and 1.5 hour intensive teaching).

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I would have liked the school to organise cultural meetings with the other students.
Other comments
I would have had a description of the payable trips, what is included and what is not, before departure. Not just a verbal statement from the school and a price that changes thereafter.

There is no student residence, but only an apartment always full with small common spaces. The number of students is negligible: at the end of July, including professors, collaborators and the secretarial sector, the whole school was composed of less than 25 people

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.
