Egyptian host families will always open their hearts and their homes to welcome you as another member of the family. Staying with us for one academic year and attending local secondary school will give you a great opportunity to explore Egyptian cultural. Attending school is essential. You will study in English and you will learn Arabic as second language, as it is the communicating language in your daily life with your host family and the local community you are hosted in. Schools will provide you with a transcript with your grades. You will either be placed in an international language school or in a national school. You must have the ability to accept and share with other communities, be responsible for yourself, interact with different people and adapt to different life styles. You should be willing to accept and adapt to our traditional and conservative culture and families and to be active and perform well in school, even if the language of instruction is Arabic There will always be volunteer and staff support you when needed.
