“Thanks for a great course!”
I received a lot more from this course than I expected. The instructors were in tune with what I need in order to be successful in my upcoming tour in Egypt… Both instructors challenged me daily by saturating me in Egyptian dialect as it is spoken by real people in real situations. This style of teaching helped me become used to the speed and manner in which real Egyptians speak. I am sure this course will have given me a big head start on Egyptian dialect before I arrive to Egypt this summer. Thanks for a great course!
