AMBergh Education in cooperation with a leading language institute in Cairo offer Arabic language courses for students of all abilities, ages and backgrounds. The courses are on offer all year around, and cater for students ranging from absolute beginners to those at a highly advanced levels. Specialized courses are also available: Media Arabic, Business Arabic, Arabic for Diplomats, and Calligraphy.
If you want to brush up your Arabic or simply learn the basics prior to arrival in Cairo, we recommend an Arabic online course. Online courses at all levels are available for our students.
All students except absolute beginners take a placement test upon arrival to ensure placement at appropriate level. Qualified instructors with extensive teaching experience use a variety of learning methods and materials; books, films, articles, music and role playing.
Taking an individual course gives you excellent opportunities to steer the pace and content of your lessons. The tutors are very good in adapting lessons to meet the needs of their students. One-to-one tuition guarantees fast progress and focuses on developing those language skills, which are important to you.
Group courses, Modern Standard Arabic
The MSA group courses include 20 lessons per week. You can start any Sunday throught the year. Minimum course duration is two weeks. You can study for a longer period by proceeding from one level to the next. Group courses are small, normally between 3 and 6 students. If a group at your Arabic level would not be available at the time of your arrival, you will be compensated by individual lessons. One lesson equals 50 minutes.
