Arabic Language Training
While part of your day will be spent teaching in the classroom, the other part will be spent studying Egyptian colloquial Arabic. Egyptian Arabic is the most widely used and most understood dialect of the Arabic language. By studying this form of the language, you will gain the skills needed to communicate all over the Arab World.
We pride ourselves in our cultural immersion program, whereby learning does not merely take place in the classroom. Our students have the chance to practice their Arabic in authentic situations with the help of their teachers. A basic part of our course is dedicated to activities that aim to explore the Egyptian culture and practice Arabic in authentic situations. In a typical week, classes are taken four days and one day is dedicated for cultural immersion activities. You can also extend the language component throughout the year, so please inquire with our staff to learn more.
Teaching Internship Component

In the afternoons, interns will teach their own EFL classes, a maximum of 10 hours/week, to gain practical experience of the more advanced areas of teaching such as administrative issues.
