Course Structure

Program Objectives

As the dialect is the spoken version of Arabic, The Egyptian Colloquial Arabic (ECA) program in IH Cairo focuses on developing the oral language skills: speaking and listening. The aim is to enable learners to interact with native speakers in social and professional contexts and to demonstrate understanding of the surrounding culture. The Egyptian Colloquial Arabic (ECA) study levels are based on to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Each course is supplemented by a selection of authentic materials from different resources in the internet for listening and discussion activities.

Methods of teaching:

The classroom activities allow for maximum student participation and aim at developing oral language skills; speaking and listening through communicative activities.

The classroom could be seen as a small learning community and students are encouraged to work in pairs and small groups in class in order to maximize the opportunities for language practice and peers’ support with the teacher’s help and feedback.Assignments are integral part of each course and they aim at enforcing what has been taught in class as well as creating opportunities for interaction with native speakers outside the classroom.
