Newsletter No.01 - July 2017

Summer is now in full swing in Tripoli. The first Summer Term just finished and the second is about to start. Let's have a look to what happened during the last four weeks at the LEVIT.

A term at the Levantine Institute of Tripoli is full of events and activities. From the Syrian Cooking Classes to volunteering and the trips to different amazing locations in Lebanon, our students have plenty of opportunities to enjoy Lebanon and practice the language as well outside the class. 

An amazing location

The Levantine Institute is located in the neighborhood of Zeherie, in the central part of the city of Tripoli. Both the teaching activities and the student residence are hosted in the same building, a beautiful Ottoman palace, whose terrace is definitely the best place where to chill after a day of lessons and activities.

Trip to Baalbek

On 16 July the Levit organised a trip to Baalbek. Sophie from the LEVIT Team led a group of students to visit the amazing Roman ruins, the beautiful shrine of Sayyda Khawla and the rest of this fascinating city located at the heart of the Beqaa Valley.

Volunteering at the Maan Center


Hosted in the same building of the Institute, the Maan Center provides education to Syrian children excluded from the Lebanese Education system. Students from the LEVIT are volunteering as tutors for the children, while also starting a course of English Language that takes place twice a week.

Syrian Cooking Classes

Every Monday and Wednesday it is possible to join a Cooking class led by an amazing Syrian lady. It is a great opportunity to both learn how to cook delicious homemade food and to keep practicing the language!
