Experienced teachers

A rarity in MENA; you're able to discuss sensitive politics to financial trends!

All of our qualified teachers have extensive experience & are rigorously vetted before joining our faculty. We aim to provide you with a unique classroom atmosphere enabling your language to flourish. Very few institutes actually deliver small class sizes, but here at Noor Majan Training Insitute it's part of our philosophy; so we completely limit the classes to an absolute maximum of 8, although in reality you'll be hard stretched to find a class with more than 5 students.

  • "You run more than just a school. I felt like I was part of a big

    family in Ibri... I hope to return to Oman sometime in the near

    future. You did a great job of making me fall in love with the

    country... I am very happy with my choice to study abroad here!"

    Charlie Creech, Grand Valley State University, Michigan, USA
  • Calm and peaceful setting to study Arabic … I cannot be grateful

    enough for how much Arabic I’ve learned this summer!... I love the

    language partner concept. I drastically improved my speaking

    skills over the two months. At our last meeting, I was reflecting

    with my partner on how on the first day I could barely put

    sentences together and kept saying “Kayfa naqool…?”

    Anonymous - USA
  • "Studying at Noor Majan was an experience that I will carry with

    me through the rest of my life. The amount of Arabic I absorbed

    throughout my stay was extremely beneficial, as being

    submerged in the language and culture made for a rewarding

    learning experience. The staff and teachers were phenomenal and

    it felt like we were a family. Everyone was willing to go the extra

    mile to help us and make sure we could get as much as possible

    out of the program. "

    Sofiya Asedrem, Northern Virginia Community College, USA
  • "I take this opportunity to warmly thank you for the tremendous

    job you accomplished. I can clearly see now how beneficial and

    positive my learning process has increased having stayed with

    your excellent school. And this is why I can’t recommend this

    school enough. "

    Jean-Armand Figeac, The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London
  • "A great school that I cannot but recommend! Thank you for all

    your help!"

    Johanna von Glasenapp, University of Freiburg, Germany
