"If you want to learn the Arabic language seriously, visit ILI!" Seriously, this was by far the best course I have ever attended, and I have experience with different schools. I am finally fit in Arabic grammar and that's a really big success for me. A big compliment to Wisam, my teacher, her teaching style could not be better. I look forward to continue my training in Arabic language at ILI next year, if I find time to do that. The institute ILI is well equipped and well organized. I can't find a point of criticism. Compliments to all the staff at ILI, they all do a very good job!
