If you want to get in touch with locals and the local way of living, Alexandria is a nice place. It is not very touristic.

The history of this city is well know for centuries. It is a great city indeed as its founder Alexander the Great! Eskendereyya (Alexandria), its vibrant colors, multicultural traditions, easygoing people will make your time a GREAT one!

Ahlan-Egypt

Friendly and flexible staff
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).

Teachers. Good teaching methods. Very satisfied.
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.

The enthusiasm and generosity of the teachers, and others involved in administration.
I would have benefitted more from a more traditional textbook, with AV materials, a relevant vocabulary, and a clear study plan.

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.
