Types of Programs


  • General Arabic Language: Mainly Modern Standard Arabic (Fusha), however, most universities require their students to combine Egyptian Colloquial Arabic with Modern Standard Arabic so that students can communicate confidently with native speakers. We regularly adapt courses to fit with a university's curriculum.

  • Specialized Arabic Language: Some universities require their students to study Arabic for special purposes, such as Media Arabic, business Arabic, history and society studies, religion and culture, grammar or writing and translation. We can provide these specialized courses. One such programme was training for Civilization courses for the University of Chicago. 


Monitoring and Evaluation of Students

  • Each student receives an end-of-course evaluation and certificate as agreed with the university. A daily online attendance report is available to the university Study Abroad coordinator/s. Monthly reports/assessments can be provided as required by the university. Assessments and evaluations can be accessed online by the university's Study Abroad Coordinator/s. End-of-course exams/assessment are set as per international grading systems or university-specific grading.


If you, as a university, are interested in including a Study Abroad programme with IH Cairo ILI in your curriculum, please contact us via info@ihcairo.com to provide you with all necessary information and materials.

This letter is addressed to the International Language Institute in Cairo (ILI). I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the founder and the CEO of the institute Mr. Colin Rogers, the director of studies Mrs. Hoda Adib, the teachers, and the students of the ILI, for allowing me to carry out my research at their institution. I am conducting a research, a follow-up study of my Master's Thesis, of the effect of two feedback techniques (Recast & Elicitation) on AFL learners' short-term inter-language development. Due to the importance of the results of this research in terms of the positive effect, it might have on the feedback techniques employed by AFL teachers in their classes, the ILI, as an institute that encourages research was very cooperative in terms of the facilities and the support that were given to me. It was really a unique experience getting to do my research in such a welcoming atmosphere, where I sensed eagerness in helping me see my work to completion on one hand, and in being really keen to get to know the results of my research. Accordingly, I promised to acquaint them with the results as soon as they are out. Finally, I would like to express my deepest thanks to Miss Alia, the class teacher, and her students who participated in my study. Sincerely, Heba El Ramly
