Zeinab is a very structurred teacher who also has a lot of background knowledge about Egypt\'s culture which she shares\' so the class was much more than just learning a language. Both her skills in the subject as well as her skills in bringing the subject across are excellent!!
I thought there were not enough extracurricular activities. I would have loved to see something once a week at least.
Great classes at Arabeya
After quick and flexible response from the arabeyya, I had a short and intensive Ammeya class at Arabeyya. In receiving me, the school was very flexible and attentive to what I wanted to do and accomplish during the classes, creating a program perfect for me!
My teacher was very patient and knowledgeable, coming well prepared to our sessions. Brining a variety of current texts and media, the classes never went dull.
When I get the chance to return to Egypt to freshen up on my Arabic, I will certainly email Arabeyya
professional place to study
she could start to study with me from the level and knowledge I achieved till the time I started and helped me with practice and to add more knowledge
Marwa was always very nice with us and I learnt a lot ! I am so glad I met her
I have been at Arabeya for three weeks to study ECA, and enjoyed it very much. Thanks to individual lessons with a great teacher I feel I have made great progress in the language. I also enjoyed the "family-like" atmosphere in the school (for example there was always someone in the kitchen to prepare you a tea). And my student accommodation was well-equipped and only a three-minute walk away from the school. So I can just recommend Arabeya to anyone wishing to successfully study the Arabic language!
A school to recommend
After searching about a suitable school to study arabic with, i am very happy I found Arabeya. The school has a very comfortable and calm environment to study in and everyone is very friendly and helpful. My teachers were excellent and prepared their classes flexible according to my wishes and requirements. Grammar is dealt very detailed so you learn it good and the practise is often in a playful way to keep the fun in the lesson. In the four weeks I spent in the school i learnt fast and a lot. I can recommend this school definitely and i think about rejoing it again for more courses.
I was taking classes with only one other student and I had four hours of ECA a day, which meant that there was a lot to learn everyday. The teachers helped me to deal with the workload and they provided different types of learning material, such as films, conversation tasks, grammar sheets etc. The school has a very cozy atmosphere and there is constantly coffee and tea being served. The location of the school is perfect, because you can take any of the metro lines and it is only a two-minutes-walk from Sadat station.
This was an interesting and nice new experience for language studies in a foreign country. I had never done before and I recommend this for every Arabic student.
Arab - or how i became a chair
When I first visited arabeya it felt like being accepted as a family member! And since then I've always enjoyed coming back to the school, even if I wouldn't have class - just to see the people again. There was always a helping hand and always a smile when arabic seemed to hard to master. So when it was one of those days again, when nothing worked, when I couldn't remember any of my vocab or grammar we would simply conclude "ana kursi annaharda" - "I am a chair today". So even on the hardest days there was no feeling of giving up or quitting arabic at all, but only a even funnier day! Which motivated me even more in becoming better in arabic. But also beside the lessons and school I had great time together with my teachers, who where always up for any activities outside the school. So arabeya is not only a great place for learning the language but as well to meet new friends and get a helping hand for the sometimes tough life in cairo downton.
I really enjoyed taking classes (private lessons ECA and MSA) in this school. Before I had studied MSA in University but faced the difficulty of communicating and expressing myself well. After 45h in ECA and some refreshment in MSA I feel much more comfortable in speaking and understanding. For all students of Arabic language I can only encourage you taking lessons here because this is really helpful (especially after the discovery that MSA doesn't help a lot if travelling throughout Arabic countries). And it is very motivating studying here and improvements in speaking arabic can be achieved quickly.
My 20 hours intensive lessons in ECA have finally helped to 'switch' from MSA to ECA - thanks to all the Arabeya staff I've had one of my 'lifetime experiences' during this week and thanks to the well organized and structured lessons I've learnt the most within shortest time. Thank you Hasnaa - thank you Hager!
I've been living in Egypt for years now. For me it was such a pleasure and great experience to see that there is such an ambitious, hard-working, well-educated, professional and diligent young generation of Egyptians! My deepest respect!
I'll be back - insh'Allah....
Opinion of the school
to be in this school was a pleasure and i would like to come again for my next class.
Nice language school
This is a very nice language school with nice teachers and good atmosphere. I had a one on one class and helped me alot to increase my arabic skills. Everyone who wants to learn proper spoken arabic should come here
Arabya gave us the opportunity to spend nice
Arabya gave us
the opportunity to spend nice, interesting and informative time in
Cairo. The kids were able to learn in 7 days much more than they would
have learnt in months somewhere else.
Aya is a
dedicated teacher and has good knowledge in working with kids - very
important and appreciated. She is nice and careful.
Some times she could be more patient.
Great lessons in the center of cairo
I visited the courses of the school for six months. I always was really satisfied. The teachers were motivated, polite and very helpful. I learned a lot and we spoke about a lot of interesting topics. So thank you very much for all efforts and help.
SEHR GUTE UND EMPFEHLENSWERTE SPRACHSCHULE, DIE LEHRER GEHEN AUF DIE INDIVIDUELLEN BEDUERFNISSE DER SCHUELER EIN UND SIND STEHTS GUT GELAUNT UND FREUNDLICH UND HELFEN DARUEBER HINAUS AUCH BEI DEN ALLTAEGLICHEN PROBLEMEN DES LEBENS.
The school is really good , i would recommend it 100 Prozent. The teaching methods are good for studying arabic and the one to one lessons are very useful. the atmosphere im school is relaxed and comfortable and all the employees are kind, nice and open.
only remark: little bit too expensive for students, who have to pay that on their own in general.
I really liked learning with arabeya language school because of the teaching style it offers. I liked that there is one teacher assigned to each student so the teacher is able to get a feeling for the student's individual strengths and weaknesses. It is important to feel comfortable to a person in order to be open to speak and by the way of arabeya school this goal is certainly achieved, especially because the teachers are open to talk about anything. Besides that, the organization of the school is excellent, there has never been a communication issue or anything like that. All in all I am very happy with my learning experience with arabeya.
I enjoed the atmosphare at your school your teachers are really friendly. The shedule for your students is so flexible and that suits me really well.
Just the situation on the accomodation were a little bit frustrating in me first week. I felt uncomfortable in the lower appartment and if I had known earlier that there is still a bed in the upper appartment, my first week would had been as good as my second week was.
Please be sure, that I really had a good time, I enjoed learning arabic in a way i never did in germany. It was a pleasure to be her and I had great time.
I liked the school a lot, its clean and everyone who is working here is nice and friendly. i liked the lessons a lot, because you go out in the streets and can use everything what you just learned. i can recommand the school for everyone who wants to learn spoken arabic.
Sehr zentral gelegen, daher bezueglich der Unterkunft recht grosse Flexibilitaet. Viele Cafes in der Naehe, gute Anbindung. Wala, die Office Managerin , ist eine wahre gute Seele. Jederzeit hilfreich, freundlich und unterstuetzend. Dasselbe gilt fuer Hameed, den Leiter, der Schule. Man versucht, das Programm nach den Wuenschen der Studenten masszuschneidern. Bei den beiden fuehlt man sich in guten Haenden.
If I could, I would stay for a much longer...
If I coul, I would stay for much longer...My stay at the Arabeya Language Institute was nothing short of perfect. I learned a lot, saw a lot and made amazing friends here in Egypt. I greatly recommend the school for its professionality, atmosphere and forthcoming way of treating its students.Starting with the first e-mail communications, transport from the airport and arrival at the flat, everything worked out splendidly and I always felt well taken care of. The accomodations are appropriate and in a comfortable walking distance to the school. And even catastrophese like the washing machine breaking down were taken care of without any trouble within two days.The staff is amazingly warm-hearted and highly competent. I feel that students and teachers are well-matched to each other and that the teaching methods are uniquely adapted to the students needs and abilities. I came here with only a passive grasp of Arabic, but can hold fluent (if quite simple) conversations. A large part of that is due to the great schedule the school worked out for me.Most people I met here became more like friends than teachers and I hope to see them again either here in Egypt or anywhere in the world. I strongly encourage any and all prospective students to sign up at the school and enjoy a great stay here in Egypt & a fabulous learning opportunity for Arabic.
It was a great experience learning Arabic at 4 u Arabic school . Before coming I couldn't even read the characters properly but after only two weeks of intensive classes I am able to determine complex grammar structures and translate long sentence. It was a great atmosphere with all teachers and students and for sure I want to come back.
I liked the school. The stuff was very nice and polite and helped me with every thing I needed. They were very flexible and respected my wishes. I can recommend others to study there. Many thanks!
Staying and studying here at al arabeya has been a huge step forward both academically and personally. Hela is a very competent and professional teacher who has shown a lot of patience and good will and motivation. "Customer service" and organization was really caring and I felt welcome at all times. Shukran.
Diese Schule ist wirklich empfehlenswert. Ich hatte eine sehr gute Zeit hier und wurde sehr nett empfangen. Aenderungswuenschen jeglicher Art wird sehr entgegenkommend entsprochen und man achtet sehr darauf, dass die Schueler sich wohl fuehlen! Ein Hoch auf Arabeya
Very nice school
I already went twice to the school because I liked it so much during the first time. I spent one month in 2012 and one month in 2013 and I learned a lot. The teachers are all very nice and flexible and adapt to you. The accommodation is convenient just next to school. I hope I can come back a third time soon! I miss you all!
This school is a very good school.The teachers are very good.They are very competent and can explain complicated things very well.You can choose, if you want to focus on grammar, conservations etc..
I was in general very satisfied with the school. The rooms were all very clean and for Cairo the area was also really quiet. The stuff was very friendly and even provided you with coffee and tea. The lessons were very structured and the learning plan was very individual. The teacher I had had great expertise and leaded the class excellent. All in all I was really happy with my time here and can just suggest this school for other students!
I did a five week course focusing on Media Arabic \ Translation English-Arabic, Arabic-English with Israa which left almost nothing to be desired: The teacher was very motivated and eager to meet my interests during the whole course, and was able to stay focused, friendly and energetic at all times. There were actually only two only drawbacks, one was that we changed to English too often, but that was partly my fault, because I didn't insist, and partly a consequence of the subject, i.e. translation. The other problem I met with was that my teacher would change to Amiya when the discussion got animated (what I don't study or speak). Still, that are really minor points in comparison to the excellent teaching I enjoyed during my stay here.
The staff was very friendly and put together a schedule that fit my needs. In the middle of the program I decided to change my schedule and do some Colloquial Arabic as well, which was no problem as well.
I am glad I came here to study Arabic. It was a really good time and I learned a lot. Inshalla, I will come here again! Alf shukr!
I enjoyed the time at Arabeya. I would recommend the school to anyone visiting Cairo for a longer time to get to know the basics of the beautiful language. It have made my time in Cairo a lot more interesting and enjoyable. The atmosphere at the school is fun and comfortable and the teachers are very knowledgeable. I am surely coming back next time.
in the last weeks I was able to learn a lot. Though there might be ways to make the teaching more efficient by giving it more structure and getting rid of the problem of loose papers . many institutions also include more games in their games in their teaching techniques in order to make it easier for students to remember vocab . the teachers are very friendly and helpful
I really enjoyed the classes: usage of different methods (reading, listening and conversation, occasional tests) was helpful to improve my arabic skills. The teachers were very friendly and the location of the school is close to the student's appartment.
I enjoyed my studies at Arabeya Language Institute very much. I learned a lot during the lessons and improved my language skills. My teacher always considered my questions and never hesitated to explain something another time. Not only the teachers, but also the rest of the stuff is very kind and helpful and I felt very comfortable and welcome at the Institute.
It was a very good experience. The school was really nice especially the teachers It is a very friendly and family like atmosphere. I learned a lot for my studies and will recommend the program to other people who want to learn i a very good atmosphere and pace.
The school is a nice place to study Arabic. The accomodation is close to the school and both the accommodation and the school are quite close to downtown, Zamalek and Islamic Cairo. The teachers try to design the classes according to the student's request and if the student wants to change something it is possible to make changes. Teachers and personnel are always very friendly and you feel very welcome.
I was extremly positively surprised about the school!
I learned many languages (6) abroad in different schools and Arabeya was one of the best !
The quality of the lessons and the teachers , the on time schedule, the willingness to solve any troubles and any critic in a very short time. That is what makes the difference!
All my special needs for Arabic at the Airport where taken in consideration. Extra special material prepared!
I cannot even remember that anything ever went wrong! A real wonder!
I hope I can came back soon
Arabeya is a great school with good and flexible teachers who adjust to the needs of the students.
Great School First of all it was an overall very positive experience.. I was in the smaller branch in downtown directly located at the tahrir sqare with an appartement 10 minutes by foot through the beautiful and revolutionwise important street of mohammed mahmoud. The best location you could think of! i immediately fell in love with the city. We had class in a group of two, starting from zero and both of the teachers were effective but most importantly very heartedly and open people. i learned a lot in only four weeks starting from nothing and could even speak a little bit with egyptians although i learned msa. Overall it was a perfect experience and I will come back in two weeks to recover my arabic again. thank you so much!
