xand.net - Arabic - Studies not in Syria or Yemen


Syria and Yemen are really the best locations to study Modern Standard Arabic (see the overview for further information on the difference between MSA and Colloquial). But if you must study elsewhere, here is a short and biased list of schools that might be worth checking. The only reason these schools are on this list is that they have been recommended to the author by people he has met during his studies in Yemen and Syria.


International Language Center
Arabic Language Institute at the American University in Cairo (AUC)
Kalimat Language & Cultural Centre (this one was emailed to me by the school, but sounds interesting)
