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.

Used to ask how much something costs

"I learned more here in three months than the year and a half of Arabic classes I had taken before coming here. " I am so happy with my experience at ILI. All of the teachers have wonderful, energetic personalities, and somehow manage to make learning even the most difficult grammatical concepts seem fun and manageable. The classes are very fast-paced, but incorporate a lot of review so that the students are able to retain all of the information that they take in. I think that by far the best thing about the institution is the teachers. Not only are they experts in Arabic language, all of them are just great teachers that know how to teach, in addition to the language itself. It's a lot harder to find language teachers with actual teaching skills than it sounds. I would definitely recommend ILI to anyone who is considering taking Arabic courses in Egypt.
