Come spend your summer in the beautiful coastal city of Muscat as you study Arabic. Students will study at the Center of International Learning (CIL), taking 20 hours of intensive Arabic language each week. CIL is a highly recognized international higher institution. It began nearly ten years ago as part of World Learning/SIT.

In 2012, CIL became independent as an American-Omani higher education institution. Arabic classes are held Sunday through Thursday. Classroom instruction will be supplemented by Omani Language partners who will help practice Arabic through conversation. In addition students will attend 4 hours per week of seminars and lectures on Omani and Arabic culture, history, art and society incorporated with visits to historical, cultural and relevant sites in Oman.
