· Many of our students choose to return to us to continue their Arabic studies

What does “immersion” mean?

· Students speak Arabic not only in the class with their teacher, but also with friendly school staff, other students and their host families

· Basic language skills and vocabulary can be developed and enriched at workshops, clubs and excursions organized at school every day

· Rich program of studies and cultural activities with strong emphasis on communication will activate student’s speaking skills already in a few days

· Friendly, helpful and joyful atmosphere of school will encourage students to open up and practice their language skills without a fear of making a mistake

· According to what our students say, the efficiency of a month-long “immersion” studying

in Qalam wa Lawh can be compared with a year-long study at their home university
