IH Cairo Arabic School Programs

Arabic is the sixth most spoken language in the world with 420 million people around the world speaking the language. To learn a new language that doesn’t share similarities with your native tongue is very difficult unless you learn with experienced teachers who can simplify the language for you. With our Arabic courses, you will learn vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, verb conjugation, and you will practice a lot.
