I finished Levantine immersion course last term and i really liked it! i learned Arabic much faster and more than what i accomplished after multiple months in Beirut. Tripoli is a great and cheaper city to live in Lebanon and offers you a bit of everything - great food, cultural scene, many opportunities to meet locals and volunteer with NGOs. The Institute is new, they are flexible and help with everything which makes life way easier! And they have excellent and qualified Arabic teachers. Thanks for a great month
