A special programme combining travel and study in other Ahlan centres is now available for the winter
months: you will have the opportunity to visit the most important monuments and historical sites of Alexandria, Luxor and Cairo, while studying Arabic.
Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor run classes at the same time. So, if you book to study more than six weeks
in winter time, it will be possible to change centres between Alexandria to Cairo and Luxor at no extra cost, apart from a train ticket.
This special offer allows you to enhance your experience of Egypt, while following your program of study!
