What I would highlight I was only in Egypt for a few months, but I feel I learned so much thanks to UCAN! The teachers and staff are wonderful. Taking classes here was a true blessing during my trip.

What I would highlight Thank you for showing us kindness as we set out to learn Arabic. We discovered that learning Arabic is partly words and the rest is demonstrated in love. A communication that comes from the heart. You have taught us both giving us the opportunity now to communicate in both languages: words and love, to our friends in Egypt. God bless your efforts knowing that what you do is not in vain, Keep up the good work.

What could be improved Everything was positive.

Courses review

Our Arabic language classes are specially designed depending on the student and their needs. Classes in Fus-ha, Survival Phrases or private tutoring are also available. Students may take a short intensive course, get private tutoring, incorporate cultural learning or work only on speaking.


U-Can's books and resources are designed in house to give students relevant grammar and phrases that they can use right away. As students progress in their language the lesson books, phrases and grammar help to develop a well rounded ability to converse with Arab speakers in a flexible and comfortable manner.
