Arabic Studies Resumed

Posted by sue on January 17th, 2007

I found a language institute that looks very promising, and I was able to jump into classes right away. It’s called Kalimat Language and Cultural Center, in Mohandessin, a rather fashionable area of Cairo, pretty centrally located. The vibe of the class is much more dynamic and fast-paced than my classes at ALIF, and they use their own materials rather than the Al Kitaab textbook series that I could definitely use a break from, all for about half the price of ALIF classes. So far, so good!

We have an appointment tomorrow with a real estate agent to look at apartments for rent, and I am really anxious to get settled. I think we made a good decision in leaving Morocco and coming here, both for the Arabic learning environment and the fun of a big city like Cairo, where everything is open late and there’s lots to do, but it’s been strange and even a bit upsetting to move again so soon. But we’re figuring things out, finding our way around (the GPS has been very helpful!), finding where to get our laundry done and good places to eat, and finding things that didn’t seem to exist in Fez, like art supplies and books in English. And now it’s time again to study, study, study!

    That is great. Glad to hear it. Don’t fight too much during the move, even if it is always Len’s fault. Moves are always stressful.

    Sounds awesome. It’s great you were able to find classes so quickly. And you’ll have more time to study since you’re not doing your laundry in a bucket!
