ECA / MSA - 2-weeks course

  • ECA - 2-week course

    Egyptian Colloquial Arabic or (Aameya) is the most widely understood dialect of Arabic in the Middle East. With our communicative approach, and our focus on small classes, students can quickly progress through our levels to a point where they can really start speaking. Classes are held daily from Sunday to Thursday, from 9.00 a.m -11.00 a.m.

  • MSA - 2-week course

    Modern Standard Arabic or ('Fus'ha') is used in educated conversation and the media. The course will enable you to develop your reading, writing, listening and speaking. As you progress, you will be able to discuss cultural and current affairs in the Middle East, be able to understand radio and television programmes and read newspapers and Arabic literature (including Islamic texts). Classes are held daily from Sunday to Thursday, from 11.30am -2.30pm.

  • Combined - 2-week course

    Combined ECA and MSA courses are scheduled so that it is possible for the students to study both ECA and MSA simultaneously, which is of particular interest to the many committed students that we serve. Doing the two courses together not only gives you a balance between speaking, reading and writing, but it also means that you are a full-time student, putting 5 hours of tuition a day for 5 days a week.

“Studying at ILI is a pleasure, in fact, often the highlight of the day. I appreciate the professionalism and creativity of the teachers, who combine a blend of educational methods, resulting in a stimulating, successful learning environment for casual and serious students, alike. Aisha and Amir bring a diverse and effective approach to their teaching. Each day of class includes a synthesis of clear, encouraging, competent, and thought-provoking teaching. Apart from the classroom, the facility is comfortable and clean; with cafeteria personnel who not only actively encourage Arabic conversation. This unique element serves to foster a broad, immersive, language learning experience. All these attributes make ILI a comprehensive, thriving school, and community of learning and cultural fluency.”
