Ahlan Arabic Centre Cairo
La lengua árabe se desarrolló XXXX de una tierra que enlazaba continentes, mares, montañas y desiertos en un espacio que se conoce como “el mundo árabe”. Des de el océano Atlántico en la ciudad occidental de Rabat hasta el Océano en su frontera este de la ciudad costeña de Masqat y conteniendo tres mares: el mediterráneo, el mar rojo y el mar del golfo, se encuentra el mundo árabe. Entre estos tres mares, más de 300 millones de gente y 22 países se identifican, en diversas proporciones a la identidad árabe. A nivel lingüístico, el Árabe Moderno Estándar conecta todos éstos países y gentes como núcleo del árabe escrito. Pero con tantas tierras tan diversas y amplias, exhibido de manera más evidente por las complejidades y encanto de la historia árabe, no es de extrañar que el desarrollo y personalidad de cada uno de éstos países es altamente distinto, así mismo como la lengua que ha evolucionado con el fin de reflejar los valores y culturas de cada país. Junto al casi universalmente hablado Árabe Moderno Estándar, el mundo árabe también contiene una multitud de dialectos.
Ahlan World ofrece distintas clases de árabe dialectal dependiendo de la ubicación de cada centro, por ejemplo Ahlan Jordan ofrece el dialecto jordano mientras que Ahlan Alejandría ofrece clases de dialecto egipcio, ambos completamente únicos.
Opciones de clases de Árabe Moderno Estándar:
Árabe coloquial – 10 horas/ semana, curso impartido por profesionales cualificados. Clases de 2 a 8 estudiantes dependiendo de la demanda.
Clases particulares – todo el año, flexibles para ajustarse al horario de los estudiantes. Hay paquetes disponibles.
Clases particulares a través de Skype – todo el año, muy flexible en cuanto a la hora y el dia. Hay paquetes disponibles.
Curso de un año – (Árabe Moderno Estándar + coloquial) un curso especial de 2 semestres (32 semanas) para dedicarte completamente a mejorar tu árabe. Des de Octubre 2017.
Todos los profesores son nativos, apasionados y expertos en sus campos. Cada uno cumple con nuestros exigentes estándares de enseñanza.
Cursos para residentes:
Para los que residan en las ciudades donde se encuentre un centro de Ahlan World, las escuelas Ahlan ofrecen clases a tiempo parcial, combinables con trabajo a tiempo completo. Se dan por lo general al final de la tarde de 18:00 a 20:00 dos veces por semana, pero también se pueden adaptar clases particulares a las necesidades específicas de cada estudiante. Organizando, por ejemplo, clases durante la pausa para comer o entre las 8:00 y las 9:00 antes de empezar el trabajo. Ahlan World ofrece tanto Árabe Moderno Estándar como Árabe dialectal.
Los cursos para residentes ofrecen varios beneficios para sus estudiantes siendo el más notable el dinamismo de las clases ofrecidas por los profesores de Ahlan World. Las clases son flexibles y responderán a las necesidades de cada estudiante en vez de seguir una única rígida via al desarrollo del lenguaje. De ésta manera, creemos que la adquisición de la lengua debe seguir un camino individual, sea una más estructurada a partir del aprendizaje de la gramática o a través de la construcción de un vocabulario y frases prácticas. Las clases para residentes ofrecen la oportunidad
Escucha, hablando, pronunciación, lectura, escritura, vocabulario, gramática y actividades
You can choose from the following class times:
Horario de clases está sujeto a cambio dependiendo de la disponibilidad y temporada.

El árabe es un lenguaje bello y dinámico, y vale la pena dedicarlo a estudiarlo. Además de las lecciones con nuestros maestros expertos, el instituto ofrece muchas actividades que brindan oportunidades para practicar el hablar árabe. El tiempo fuera de la ciudad, las visitas frecuentes a los sitios y mercados históricos (suq), los intercambios de idiomas y culturas, conocer gente local y entablar amistad con egipcios son formas de aumentar sus habilidades lingüísticas.
No importa cuál sea su nivel, Ahlan-Egipto lo alienta a que adopte el árabe y practique hablar y leer el idioma dentro y fuera del instituto.
Durante todo el año, tenemos clases individuales y los cursos especiales para grupos (40 o 60 horas).
En Ahlan-Egypt puede estudiar tanto el árabe estándar moderno (MSA) como el árabe coloquial egipcio (ECA).
Nuestro equipo de profesores está compuesto por profesionales nativos, altamente experimentados, especializados en la enseñanza del árabe a extranjeros.
Durante cada curso, el estudiante tiene la oportunidad de experimentar diferentes formas de enseñar, con nuestros maestros.
Por supuesto, las lecciones, tanto en árabe estándar moderno como en árabe coloquial egipcio, se organizan utilizando varios métodos de enseñanza, que incluyen gramática, multimedia, literatura, poesía, canciones y películas.
Cada clase dura de 2 a 3 horas, dependiendo del curso, con un descanso en el medio. Se proporciona té gratis durante los descansos.
En caso de que solo haya una persona en un nivel, en lugar de llevarlo a un nivel más bajo o más alto, preferimos organizar una clase privada de 1 hora y media por día para MSA (programa de capacitación normal o para maestros) y 1 hora para la ECA.
También puede tener un curso intensivo en árabe estándar moderno, inscribiéndose en el curso de Actividades Lingüísticas Extra, además de los cursos MSA normales, agregando así dos horas más de lecciones diarias de actividades lingüísticas, juegos que evalúan las habilidades lingüísticas y la conversación, por un total de 10 Horas de instrucción por semana.

Expertos profesionales brindan cursos de caligrafía, medios, periodismo y traducción en el
corazón de la capital de egipto.

También se organizan visitas a lugares interesantes fuera de la ciudad, que destacan la historia de Egipto y los lugares del patrimonio. Estos tours están siempre organizados en el contexto del turismo responsable y sostenible.
El instituto tiene tres ramas: Alejandría, El Cairo y Luxor.

Estamos muy orgullosos de nuestro nuevo centro. Este edificio de 400 años de antigüedad, recientemente renovado, cuenta con seis aulas con aire acondicionado, un área de recepción que ofrece té y café gratis y contiene una biblioteca. Brindamos una cálida y cordial bienvenida a todos nuestros estudiantes que se animan a sumergirse en el idioma árabe y en la rica cultura e historia de Egipto.
Alentamos a nuestros estudiantes a participar en proyectos de alfabetización comunitaria que operan desde el edificio bajo los auspicios de FEDA, una organización no gubernamental egipcia. Esto proporciona una excelente oportunidad para hablar árabe con la gente local.

The Ahlan team is so great and nice, you will feel comfortable timely if you are open minded. And if you need help in anyway? You will get it!
Thanks for everything.
When I searched at the first day the location of Ahlan school it was pretty hard to find it.
Finally after asking some people and using my maps I founded the right place.
So as a feedback maybe they could place some signs.
When arrived the welcoming was really niced.
My teacher directly presented herself and I needed to do a test so they could check my level.
After finishing my test there was a kind boy who helped me with pronunciation.
During the two weeks I really enjoyed the lessons.
The teacher was able to speak English very well.
Besides that he had a really positive vibe.
I've heard there a hotels linked to the school but I already had another hotel booked.
Sometimes the students organised activities like having diner together or going to cultural places together.
After all I'am really happy with this experience in Cairo and at Ahlan.
Hope this is enough information.

Location is excellent. It’s fun to have lunch in Khan el Khalili. All of the other faculty members seem to be excellent also, as the administrators.Ver los detalles » Leer más...
Very flexible and accommodating: Because of my full-time job, I could only do class on Fridays and/or Saturdays when the school is closed, but they were very flexible in scheduling one-on-one tutoring for those days. They were also very flexible in creating a curriculum that included a blend of MSA and colloquial Egyptian. They were also very flexible in extending my lessons due my frequent travels that caused me to miss class.
Competent teachers: I began with one instructor for the first 20 or so weeks who was very good, but had to depart for a job overseas. My second instructor has also been very good. Ahlan Instructors are patient and especially good with explaining Arabic grammar which, for me, is very important in understanding and retaining the language. Instructors are also very nice and welcoming and enjoy helping students experience the culture of Cairo.
Acceptable location: I live in Cairo about a 20-30 minute Uber ride from the school so the location was not convenient for me in terms of being within walking distance of home. However, the school is located on the backside of the Khan e-Khalili shopping district so it is an ideal location for students to walk outside the school and practice Arabic at shops and restaurants.
Acceptable facilities: The school has separate furnished classrooms (with white boards), outdoor sitting areas, kitchen facilities, bathroom facilities, free Wi-Fi, and A/C (very important in the summer). Flies are bothersome, but that's typical everywhere in Cairo. Feral cats are also frequent visitors slipping into classrooms and meowing loudly for food (students should be careful as they may carry rabies). There was also staff available during my lessons offering tea and keeping the facilities clean.
Housing: Not applicable (I live in Cairo)
Activities: For the most part, my schedule would not allow me to participate in any of the cultural activities that Ahlan offers. I was able to participate in Iftar dinner hosted at the school because it occurred late enough after work. It was very nice. Plenty of good food and an opportunity for me to me other teachers and students that I normally don't have an opportunity to interact with. Very family-oriented feeling at Ahlan.
Ahlan Cairo is a language school that I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to study Arabic in Cairo, as there was a very good balance between studying and doing cultural activities, where you could explore Cairo and learn more about Egyptian culture. The class sizes were perfect for me, as I wanted to do a one on one course and get more personal attention. The classes were then tailored to me, based on what I wanted to learn or study. The school itself is located in Al-Gamaleya, which made the experience feel very authentic, as you get to see the old city of Cairo every single day. The housing was also excellent, as that was one thing I was worried about but I had no complaints or problems.Ver los detalles » Leer más...
Location was perfect and just 10 minutes from metro station. Facilities were excellent and the activities were great. The teacher and manager are super friendly.
I only missed having other students around because I was the only one in my class. It would be more fun to have someone in the same level as me to make homework and practice with in Arabic.
I'm a student of languages and I have studied in several private schools, so I can make a comparison. Ahlan has small classes with few students, divided by level. This was good for learning because the teachers give you full attention and involve you in the lesson. Having different teachers gives different learning methods, such as listening, dictation, grammar etc. The teachers were always available to help you if you had problems understanding, and they incited you to talk and practice the conversation. They had a good method of teaching Arabic to foreigners, which is what is sometimes difficult to find in others Arabic schools.
Talking about the general atmosphere, I never felt excluded; the entire staff had always done their best to make me feel at ease even with the different culture. They treated me with respect and cordiality.
Moreover, the school organized different activities, which allowed you to spend your time outside school, discovering Egypt.
Mr. Hamada, the director, was very helpful; he answered all my doubts and he helped me every time I needed help. He worried about everything until he was sure you had everything you need.
The nice thing about Ahlan is that you can learn and make friends, and feel like being in a big family. Even the cleaning lady was very nice to us. The last thing is the school location: Ahlan is on the old Islamic Cairo, which is the best place to see the real Egyptian life.
I enjoyed my experience at school, especially the fact that I was living in the city where I was studying! The people were very kind and generous. I would however like to make more cultural visits in the city of Cairo. I liked the patience of the teacher. Some were a lot more organized than others in their working methods. The teaching method of Professor Omar was remarkable, because these courses were planned and he tracked back on the material covered in other courses. I believe this is essential to learning.Ver los detalles » Leer más...
The teachers are excellent, very competent and extremely professional. The school is located in a very nice historical area. When you enter the school, the staff makes you feel you are a part of their family. There is a very nice employee who cooks great authentic Egyptian food while helping you do your homework and practice speaking Arabic.
The administrators would do anything to make your stay enjoyable. They actually visit the country with you! They take care of everything. I was living in a nice flat, located about 5 minutes walk from Tharir square. Every single person that I met has become a great friend of mine. It's all about the people. Everyone is so kind.
There are no words to express how grateful I am to have met all these great people.
I liked that the classes were smaller. It was more personal, which helped me learn the language. It was good that the teachers conducted the classes in Arabic as much as possible. This forced me to learn the language. Extra cultural experiences, trips, and lectures outside of class made the experience even more fulfilling. I felt that the location was very good. There were some nice little shops in the area surrounding the school. I walked there every day from the Arabian Nights hostel, which was a very nice walk for me. I liked the Arabian Nights hostel very much, but I think it was a better place for shorter stays.
If you will in Cairo for over a month, do not stay in the Arabian Nights hostel. If you will stay for less than a month, then the Arabian Nights hostel is a nice simple place. As for the teachers, I liked all of them. It felt very family-like, which helped in learning the language. The weekly activities were also amazing and I am glad that I had the opportunity to do some of those. I will hopefully return one day. I connected with a lot of good people.
The staff at school, location and facilities were very nice. I learned a lot, since the school provides classes for every student, no matter which level they are in. What made the experience to study Arabic at Ahlan Egypt even more perfect were the countless activities after class.Ver los detalles » Leer más...
Warm hearty atmosphere. Teaching was well prepared and included intuitive learning which I appreciate. Lessons were held in Arabic only where possible which was really helpful for the learning process. The staff was always very friendly caring and interested. I felt very much at home.Ver los detalles » Leer más...
I am back in Switzerland for a week now. All in all I had a good experience, of which the school was one part. I have relatives in Alexandria which I visited regularly on the weekends and I have friends in Cairo whom I met in the evenings.
I have applied for a class and for a one on one teaching; in the end I was the only student, so I had only one on one teaching. I was welcomed in a friendly way, by Ali the manager and Omar, the teacher.
I am a language teacher myself, so I am probably a very difficult student and in fact I judge the didactic quality varied. On the one hand the teaching material was all in Arabic and did not offer any vocabulary list, but I managed to do one by myself. On the other hand, with the help of the teacher I managed to get through the book quite well, but I must say it is not comparable with what I use in my teaching. As for the didactic techniques, the teacher used a variety of methods through the lessons, gave homework and checked it. But I hardly ever had the impression that he was in any way prepared. I am, of course, aware that I cannot expect Swiss quality.
My Arabic is now on a decent level, I can formulate sentences and speak to strangers who don't speak English, and that is due to the lessons; but I'd like to add that I did my homework and added two hours per day to the lessons, revising and studying.
The school is situated in an area that is considered the historic centre of Cairo, unfortunately that means only to a certain extent picturesque, the area (not the school) is rather dirty, but never dangerous. The call to prayer was extremely loud and disturbed the lessons very much. The house in which the school is in belongs to the FEDA, an organization which gives room to craftsmen. That makes it loud too, for hammering and so, but I liked the idea and I didn't find it disturbing.
The school offers an outing every night, I accepted it once, since I had a lot of friends in Cairo, it was a very nice Sufi dance. Every day, we had a breakfast with local traditional food, which I liked very much.
My main issue concerning this school is the staff, not so much as professionals, but rather their way of thinking: Ali the manager is from upper Egypt, not from Cairo and has a wife there who can not come to see him. He speaks openly about wanting to get married to another woman in Cairo since he is fascinated with their libertine ways, although he cannot understand that women in Cairo walk without men at their side.
Omar the teacher, when I answered to his question, what is east of Egypt, there is Israel, said, no Israel does not exist, it's Palestine.
The (female) servant was veiled with a face cover that allowed to see only her eyes. I didn't like that so much, although the lady was very nice.
I can accept that people think the way they think, especially since this gave me an insight in a way of thinking which seems to be very common in Egypt, but this school is oriented to westerners and it belongs to an Italian. So I expect the staff to be aware about their clients' open minded thinking and not to let their thinking shine through too much.
All in all, I learned a lot in this school, not only linguistically, but socio-politically as well, but that part was not easy to digest.
Dear Mr Hilal,
Having read your feedback, I feel it is my duty to respond to you personally. I am glad to hear that, on the whole, your experience of Egypt was good. As you are no doubt aware, Egypt has been adversely affected by both the revolution and the Middle East conflicts along its borders. As a result, tourism is down and students are few. Therefore, we appreciate your visit all the more and take your comments seriously.
Egyptians are very friendly people, so it pleases me to hear that the staff were welcoming. Your assumption to expect less of the teaching methodology here is correct, although your vocabulary list suggestion is excellent and we shall put this into action for future students.
I was pleased to read that your Arabic has improved as a result of the course and that you also understand the importance of the homework and self-study. Not all students are as diligent. Your comments about the setting of the school will be useful to those people who have never travelled to Cairo before and will let them know what to expect upon arrival.
My main issue concerning your feedback was the personal comments about the staff. The review page should not be used as a forum to make judgements about individuals or their religious beliefs. There are no 'servants' at this school, we are all staff. At Ahlan Egypt, if a woman chooses to wear a nicab then this is her choice. As long as staff are friendly and helpful, they are welcome to work in our school.
With regard to the temporary manager (who was working there at the time of your visit), I accept that his personal opinions may have offended you and that they may have been inappropriate comments. However, to state your understanding of his opinions on a public web page is equally inappropriate. Finally, your statement about the teacher being drawn into a political conversation was alarming. Obviously, I have reminded staff that Ahlan Egypt is not a political or religious institution and therefore no opinions can be expressed on these matters, even if pressed.
I hope we have dealt with the feedback to your satisfaction.
I very much liked studying Arabic in Islamic Cairo and found this to be a much more dynamic and authentic experience. It was great having intensive private classes, and the teachers/staff were very friendly. I was disappointed that there weren't any cultural activities offered (it was a very quiet time at the school) and it was also quite frustrating that I wasn't able to have morning classes every day - but the staff did try to be understanding about this.Ver los detalles » Leer más...
My time here in Cairo is amazing. I am having Arabic lessons in the morning, it is one to one because there was nobody else on my level and therefore very intensive, and in the afternoon we are having each day different activities. I really like my lessons, my teacher is good and patient. The school is really nice, the facilities are very good and everybody is totally friendly and helpful. Any question can be asked and they try to do everything to make you feel good. There is always time for having a tea together, for a talk, for a joke... I am not only learning Arabic, but also a lot about the people, culture and the current situation in Egypt. I am living in a shared apartment with another girl who is also studying at school. The place is really nice.Ver los detalles » Leer más...
