Greetings from the sunny Sultanate of Oman. I am happy to hear about your possible interest in Arabic study. We take in 225 students each year, mostly from the U.S. England and the EU, but also others as well. We have an Intermediate Level class that starts Sunday 2 November, and runs until 26 December.

The tuition for eight weeks is $3,340. We also house students in new fully-furnished flats with all amenities (a/c, wi-fi, cleaning service) for $29 per day. The price is unbeatable compared to hotels, but the flats are much nicer and also have a dining room and fully-furnished kitchen. We also provide weekday round trip bus transport from accommodations to campus.

If you decide to come we will send you a placement evaluation to get your proficiency level just right. Meanwhile, I am attaching other information you will find of interest.

Wit kind regards,
