Yes, I recommend this program

Excellent experience!

All the teachers at the Academy are friendly and ready to go above and beyond to help their students. The learning material is unique--not the same Arabic text books that I had used again and again throughout my studies in the US. The school also provided a great atmosphere for the students outside of classes, with regular parties on holidays, field trips, and soccer games organized between the teachers and students.

What would you improve about this program?
The program does not provide housing for their students, however, they are willing to help students find apartments in the surrounding area.

Staff Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with program leaders.

What position do you hold at AA? What has been your career path so far?

I am a teacher of Modern Standard Arabic at Arab Academy, where I have been working for a number of years. I love my job because I get to meet wonderful students and work with other teachers who share my passion for the Arabic language. I hope to continue teaching here for a long time!

Did YOU study abroad? If so, where did you go and what inspired you to go?!

Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to study abroad. I came directly from my village in Egypt to study in Cairo. However, I love meeting students from around the world at Arab Academy and hearing about their experiences in their home countries.

What does the future hold for AA - any new programs to share?

We are currently working on an Arabic program for schools in Africa and an affiliated University in Minya, a city in the south of Egypt. These programs will provide an even more diverse learning experience for our study abroad students. In the meanwhile, the other teachers and I continue to work our hardest on creating a stimulating learning environment for our students in Cairo.

What about the future of the industry? How do you think study abroad and international education will change over the next 10 years?

I believe studying abroad will only become more popular in the future. Students will continue to study in more exotic places, especially now that it's easier to stay in touch with family and friends at home. International education will also become more popular for students even after college. At Arab Academy, we welcome students of any age and experience level and are excited to work with you whether you are still in university, a recent graduate, or somewhere else in your career looking for an adventure.

Which study abroad destination is most underrated? Conversely, which is most overrated?

Most underrated: Egypt, of course! When many people think of Egypt, they remember only the Pyramids and the Sphinx, but Egypt has thousands more of years of history to offer, plus a very exciting modern life. Most overrated: Any country that speaks the same language. Where is the challenge in that?
