As I noticed that my knowledge of the Arabic language was still not enough, even with several courses at the Popular University, I followed a friend’s advice and I booked a stay at ILI in Cairo. ESL made everything easier and I had a good relationship with everybody in the agency.
I can recommend the school in Cairo to all those who are not scared of making a learning effort (as the volume of topics to assimilate is quite impressive, but it’s feasible!). It took me some time to get used to the learning method, but it turned out to be very efficient. The whole ILI team was very kind and motivated, always ready to help, during the whole stay. The accommodation was very nice as well (I chose a shared apartment and I can only recommend this option, that allows “newbies” to exchange tips with their flatmates). Moreover, many excursions were offered, all at reasonable prices, and that has contributed to making the stay even more exciting (of course the well-rounded travellers can go as they like and discover Cairo the way they want). I never thought that learning could be that entertaining!
As a conclusion I would say that my stay at ILI was not only instructive but also rich with experiences. I always think about it with great pleasure and I can only give it several stars! It’s the reason why I plan to go on and do another language stay so as to strengthen in an intensive way my knowledge of the Arabic and Egyptian languages. With ESL – Language studies abroad, I have a highly competent partner by my side. Thanks to this agency, even those who go on a language stay for the first time have nothing to worry about.
With this account of my experience, I hope I made the search of people looking for a training leave easier.
