ABOUT THE STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM
Join us on our campus for a one-of-a-kind Study Abroad Program of learning Arabic in Egypt, that will immerse you in the Islamic and Arab culture and lifestyle!
Through our Study Abroad program, we commit to helping students who are eager to learn Arabic in Egypt. Our academic program offers Quran and Islamic Studies as well.
There is no other way more efficient and fast to learn the Arabic language than through direct experience. Our program will immerse you directly in the Islamic and Arab culture and lifestyle. Students like you, who packed up everything and moved to Egypt, founded our study abroad program. We were on a journey of searching for knowledge of Arabic and the deen.
It wasn’t easy! We’ve experienced many obstacles over the years. When we moved to Egypt, there were many things we needed to manage, aside from studying. And putting them all in order was time and energy-consuming. First, we had to look for a flat without speaking Arabic. This was rather difficult, and at times we felt stranded in an unknown place with nobody to help us. There was also some additional money and time that we spent trying to make a ‘home’ during our stay, and much more.
The struggles we felt when moving into a new country motivated us to create a Study Abroad program. We wanted to take the entire burden off the student’s shoulders. Our objective is to take care of everything for you so that you can experience a smoother transition into a new world. This will let you concentrate on your Arabic education solely. Adapting to a new culture and being away from home will never be easy, but our process will definitely give you all you need to integrate faster and start learning.
This program is for everyone who wishes to learn the Arabic language in Egypt or study the Quran. Our program will help you study Arabic and Quran intensively to reaching fluency. If you wish to prepare for and study at Al-Azhar University, we have a preparatory program for you as well!
The study program is for all levels regardless if you are a beginner or advanced learner. In the beginning levels of the Arabic course, we use some English in order to facilitate learning. We think the best way to learn is by immersing yourself in the language you are learning. Therefore you will notice, as you progress in your course, that you will use less and less English in the class!
The study classes are available either in a group setting or private class format. We can have mixed classes, but it depends on the availability as we do try to segregate classes. In mixed classes, students may sit on opposite sides of the classroom. Private classes are with a same-gender teacher (female with female, male with male), unless otherwise requested by the student.
We make sure to keep our group classes small, by this allowing you and your classmates to progress smoothly and efficiently.
Great teachers and scholars have made Egypt known in the academic field. And it is also home to Al-Azhar University, the oldest running university in the world. Egypt is producing and housing great great scholars, teachers, and Imams, and is very renowned for this.
It’s no wonder that students of knowledge come to Egypt from around the world to gain knowledge of Arabic, Quran and the religion of Islam. If you want to be part of this group of students of knowledge, then come to Studio Arabiya to learn Arabic in Egypt!
Studio Arabiya’s campus is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood in Al Mokattam, Cairo, Egypt. We chose Al Mokattam as the location for our campus for a few different reasons. 1) It is a very quiet and safe, away from the commotion of Cairo city life and possible protest. 2) It is centrally located, making traveling to Al Azhar University, tourist attractions, and other near-by areas of Cairo quick and easy and 3) Being on top of a mountain and above the busy Cairo life, the surroundings of our campus and neighborhood are clean with less pollution than the rest of Cairo.
The main curriculum used in our intensive Arabic program is the Arabiya Bayna Yadayk series. We use additional books throughout the program as supplements to help you obtain fluency in all aspects of the Arabic language.
