Besides Arabic and Quran, juniors are also introduced to select topics from Seerah, Islamic manners, Tafsir and Aqidah to nurture and instil good manners and the correct understanding of Islam (different themes for different levels and ages).

ARABIC LANGUAGE

Students learn to understand, read, write and speak Fusha Arabic by using grammar and vocabulary practically throughout the course. 1 level is completed over 4 weeks.

QURAN

The content and objectives of Quran classes vary for each age group and level. Beginners learn to read and build a foundation in pronouncing Arabic letters and words correctly. Intermediate and advanced students are introduced to selected Tajweed topics (practice and theory).  Students are also set Hifdh goals for the summer.

Students are expected to memorise at home and use class time to read by heart to the teacher and their peers. 

ISLAMIC STUDIES

The selected themes for this summer:

  • Tafsir of Surah Al-Fatihah
  • The story of Yusuf (alayhisalaam) and Bani Israa’il
  • Selected Ahadith from Imam An-Nawawi

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.

FAQ

The setup is varies from age group to agegroup

12+ years old = Boys and girls have completely separate classes

9-11 year old = Boys and girls are segregated within the classroom or separated completely.

8 years and below = mixed gender classes

The buildings for the adults and children are separate with a distance of approximately 15 minutes by transportation. A  shuttle service between the two locations is available for juniors on the programme. The approximate costs are below: 

£18 per month (1 child)

£10 per month per child (4+ children)

Can I send my children to Egypt without accompanying them?

Under 18s must have an adult responsible for their care during their stay in Egypt. The recreational trips are intended for families so they would also need their chaperone to be with them.

The recreational trips are not currently like “school trips” where staff are responsible for the children.  

Can I get the Early-Bird offer if I do my evaluation after the offer date expires?

Your evaluation has to be booked and completed before the early-bird offer expires for you to be eligible for the offer. If you’re booking last minute before the offer and you cannot find a slot before the date, contact support so they can assist you in finding unlisted slots.

If we send you your place offer after the offer expiry date, you are still eligible for the offer given you confirm your place within 3 days of receiving the place offer.  

Can I apply the Early-Bird offer with a sibling discount?

No, only one of the two offers can be redeemed at a time. 

I'm coming mid-July and want my child to benefit from the Hifdh camp which starts in the beginning of July, can my child still join?

Yes, your child can still join. However, there would be no reduction in the fees.

Full refunds are available for course cancellations made before 10 May. Only partial refunds are possible after this date.

Accommodation bookings are non-refundable after 01 June (regardless of your start date).
