• When will I know my level and class?

    Usually we recommend you to arrive one or two days before the course starts. The first day of the course is registration and placement testing, with lessons starting in the afternoon (first day only).


    If you are staying in our students’ residence you can arrive the day before and move in in the afternoon. If you are arriving earlier, please let us know and we’ll do our best.

    If you want to find your own furnished apartment, please inform our reception team upon your arrival at IH Cairo ILI and one of our agents can help you
