Throughout the year, NVIC offers courses that are open to the general public. The following courses are now open for registration: Intensive Beginner's Course Egyptian Colloquial Arabic and Survival Arabic Group Lessons.
The NVIC organises weekly lectures (on Thursday) and films (on Sunday) on a variety of subjects. Our season of films and lectures came to an end. We are looking forward to welcoming you all back in September, when our film and lecture programme will be continued!
Have you heard about the book bus project (عربية الحواديت) in Sharqiya? This wonderful initiative encourages children, who don't have easy access to books, to read by spreading books by car. They are also setting up a library! Do you want to donate books to this project? Bring them to the NVIC library during our opening hours, and they will be collected by the book bus volunteers later. Books preferred are Arabic children's books, or books for the library in either Arabic or English. To learn more about this project, you can read Al-Monitor's article
Are you interested in the modern Middle East and would you like to dive into the fascinating culture?

Cairo, a bustling metropolis in the heart of the Middle East, will be your classroom.
Between 16 May and 4 June our first ‘Introduction to Ancient Egypt’ course took place with a group of highly motivated students.
