Learning Arabic at AUC was a wonderful experience! I chose to take both Modern Standard Arabic (formal) and the Egyptian dialect. If you want to be able to understand written Arabic, the formal Arabic is inevitable. If you want to learn the spoken dialect, I would choose Egyptian!
What I want to highlight the most, was how our teacher made us feel comfortable and at ease from the first day of class! We explored the language together as a group, and she created the best learning environment.
I highly want to recommend this course! You will get plenty of guidance and the chance to ask any questions you want, hear interesting and fun facts about the Egyptian culture and the possibility to learn the most beautiful language!
