Arabeya Language Center Reviews
Submitted by Defne Taner - Germany | March 28, 2018
I am impressed by all the organization and events they do and offer: very professional in every aspect. All the workers and members at the school are so friendly and welcoming, I feel very comfortable coming here and enjoy it a lot.
The most I like the class is my teacher herself and how she is organizing the class and her openness. She is always prepared and knows how to explain the new grammar very simple so I can follow. The communication works well.
I am at the very beginning of the language course but still we try sometimes to speak in Arabic, which really helps me a lot.
Samar is very patient; she really tries to adjust to the students needs.
I can see how she did the organization a new grammar, there's always the grammar with explanation and also exercises and homework it.
I feel really comfortable to ask anything and Samar is very open and helpful with answering, so it\'s not only a strict language course, she is also open to listen and help me with questions the daily life here in Egypt.

I've studied at Arabeya between March 2016 and December 2017. Having classes with 10 different teachers gave me a lot of understanding the Arabic language, Egypt, and the Middle East. Teachers such as Shrouk, Somia, Rehab, and Nihal, were some of the best tutors I've ever met in my life.
To anyone who is interested in either starting his/her journey with Arabic, or continuing studies at a higher level, I can highly recommend Arabeya as a great place to pursue these goals.
Egypt is a gateway to the Middle East and simply an interesting place to be. Arabeya is definitely your best choice here: a kick-starting power before you gain your momentum and fly away to start exploring on your own.
The strengths of the school I would say were the teachers’ experience, English language skills, energy, patience, respect, creativity and passion in teaching.
Shrouk is the best teacher I had. She was always patient in explaining, gave a lot of examples, and knew how to explain things due to her experience in teaching. Moreover, the classes were always interesting.
As for weaknesses, I really didn’t see any. The thing I liked the least class at Arabeya was that they ended.
Program: One-to-One Arabic Courses
Submitted by Caroline Binot - - | February 04, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed my home stay program at Arabeya. My teacher was patient, fun and energetic. This was not only a fantastic way to get started as a complete beginner, but also a safe and enjoyable way to visit Egypt and learn the culture as a lone female.
Sometimes it felt a little fast paced for my level. I would like more slow practice, especially with reading.
Over all, though, Dr Fatima was very good and friendly, bringing lots of energy and variety to the lessons. I thoroughly enjoyed my program.
My time at Arabeya
Submitted by Isabel Obregon - Cornell University | January 31, 2018
My time at Arabeya was fantastic because of the nice accommodation, the central location of the school, and the wonderful and helpful staff (especially my teacher).
The small class sizes are a perfect environment to focus on individual needs and I learned so much not only Egyptian Colloquial Arabic but Egyptian culture and history as well.
I liked how we talked cultural aspects of Egyptian society and the differences between Egypt and America a lot instead of just only reading from the textbook.
Our teacher (Zeinab) was so sweet and accommodating and made our experience in Egypt so much better. She adjusted the class to fit our needs and taught me a lot not only ECA but the country of Egypt as well.
I am so thankful for my time in Egypt and would like to thank Arabeya for making this possible!
Program: Intensive Arabic Summer Course 2018
Winter course 2 weeks
Submitted by Elisa Vidal | January 15, 2018
Arabeya is a great school with amazing teachers, eager to teach Arabic. I went for the 2-week winter course and Marwa injected me with a boost of grammar and practice that made my level go up.
Marwa was really on the ball teaching me grammar, she knew my level and made me go out of my comfort zone so I could learn further. She pushed my level a lot! The only thing I would change of her is that she needs to speak louder, as otherwise it hypnotises me, such a relaxing voice, honestly.
Being enrolled for 5hrs a day, I could hardly have enough time to do 'wajiib', therefore I think I only did on one occasion. I was going out to meet people and sightseeing every day so on an intensive course is very difficult to be able to do homework. I am still doing the homework that Marwa gave me...:) ha ha ha
Mohandeseen accommodation is in a fantastic neighbourhood, where you will feel safe and welcome by the locals. Also, wherever I bought in this neighbourhood I got Egyptian price, not tourist price.
Try to speak to the locals; they are friendly and also curious to know you too.
Arabic learning, a beautiful journey.
I shall return, insha'allah.
