I've had a wonderful experience at Arabeya. The list of superlatives is endless, and at the risk of sounding like an Arabeya marketing agent, I'll keep it short. This experience has transformed my approach to language acquisition. In two short weeks, I have been exposed to an incredibly broad range of new lexis, and finally got my head around many of the grammar rules I was struggling with. I feel my conversational skills have jumped up a level and so to my confidence.
I met many interesting people who, like me, are on this journey to learn Arabic. I have had the privilege of studying with three excellent teachers. Cairo is quite simply an enchanting city, which if you haven't visited, you really should.
My only regret is not coming here when I first decided it was probably best that I register for an intensive language course somewhere in the Middle East (which was back in 2009).
