Why Egypt?

Visit the ancient city of Cairo, home to many scholars and specialist of the Arabic language and Quranic sciences…

Egypt has always been a learning hub for Arabic, Quran and Islamic sciences being where scholars in these fields and their students reside and teach.  

Areas like Madinat Nasr are buzzing with foreigners from all corners of the world in their journey of studying Arabic, Quran and Islamic studies so you'll not only meet locals, but people of other cultures who probably only share one language with you (Arabic).

Although the language of the streets is the Egyptian colloquial dialect (known as  'Aamiyyah), it is still relatively easy to pick up as it has been minimally influenced by the language of its  colonisers. Many words are derived from fusha (Modern Standard Arabic) so it is possible to understand what is being said over time.

The Islamic atmosphere, friendly people and hospitality leaves everyone with memories that  gives them a longing to return back.
