Cairo is the capital of Egypt and is the largest city in Africa and the Arab world. Along with governmental, and economic influences, Cairo also has the oldest and largest film and music industries in the Arab world, meaning that students that are interested in studying Arabic courses in Cairo will not only get the history that it has to offer, but will also be submerged in great creators of culture as well. The city also has the world’s oldest institution of higher learning, al-Azhar University. Many international media, businesses, and organizations have regional headquarters in the city, and the Arab League was established in Cairo in 1945 and has been based there for most of its existence. Students will find that there are plenty sights to see during their time at an Arabic school in Cairo, and shouldn’t miss some of the magnificent architecture (both ancient and modern) and great cultural events like trips to the opera or to the Cairo International Film Festival.
