* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Great Arabic program, I learned a lot of Arabic! The culture class was insightful but at times difficult due to teaching methods (it was lecture style with 1 break of 15 mins. for a 3 hour class.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

This was the best homestay experience that I have ever had. I felt part of the family and my Arabic increased tenfold.

* Food:

The food was fantastic. The only problem was getting adjusted to it!

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Calligraphy in the park was one of the activities that the resident director put on for the students.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

The city is safe as long as you are aware of your surroundings there is nothing you should be afraid of. I did not need to go to the hospital but I'm sure it would be fine. I did not have any major health issues that needed to be addressed.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
