During this four-week program, you’ll experience an intensive introduction to the Arabic language through immersion in Egyptian culture. You’ll live with an Egyptian host family, attend Arabic classes, and travel with fellow AFS students to cultural and historic sites around the country.

Many experts say that you can’t fully learn a language unless you’re immersed in it. By attending classes and then coming home to use Arabic around the dinner table with your host family, you’ll have a unique opportunity to improve your skills in an accelerated learning environment.

AFS students have lived in communities all throughout Egypt, but you’ll likely be in an urban or suburban area. Past host communities have included Alexandria, Cairo, El Fayoum, El Menya, Giza, Ismailia, Port Said, and many others. Become a cultural insider in Egypt this summer with AFS!
