ECA / MSA - 4-weeks course

  • ECA - 4-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 begin start speaking. Classes are held daily from Sunday to Thursday, from 9.00 a.m. -11.00 a.m.

  • Combined - 4 week course

    Combined ECA and MSA courses are scheduled so that it is possible for 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 also means you are a full-time student, putting 5 hours of tuition a day for 5 days a week.

Will you go with me to the cafeteria now?

هل تذهب معي إلى الكافيتيريا الآن ؟

Used to ask if someone will go somewhere with them


ILI is a great place to come and study Arabic, and they cater to all levels beginner to advanced. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff are open minded and always helpful and smiley no matter what! They also offer many activities outside of the classroom making it possible to see Egypt and to meet lots of other international students. I would highly recommend studying at ILI. Cairo is the place to be!
