Al-Diwan was established in 1997 as a language center that teaches Arabic as a foreign language. It was -and still- located in the district of Nasr City in Cairo. At first, target students were either those who came from abroad to study in Al-Azhar or Western students � and both were studying Arabic seeking a better understanding of Islam. Then, the circle became larger as many students with different aims came to study in Al-Diwan and it became necessary for Al-Diwan to produce educational materials to suit those different aims.
After that, and as a response to the students� suggestions and needs, the idea of establishing another branch in Central Cairo became urgent. We started studying the idea on January 2004, to serve non-Arab students who are living in Cairo and who do not prefer going to the district of Nasr City. Moreover, we started developing new materials for the students who are studying Arabic to go deeper into the Arabic literature or the students seeking better communication with Egyptians (which means that they want to study Egyptian Colloquial Arabic) or even those who want to study for business purposes. We started real working for the establishment of the new branch on March 2006.
Teaching Arabic for non speakers of Arabic regardless of their aims, ages or races; and also we aim at cooperating with research foundations in order to develop the teaching methodology and meet the needs of Arabic learners.
Al-Diwan staff is consisted of native speakers of Arabic. They are university graduates from the faculties or the departments of Arabic. All of the teachers are qualified to teach Arabic as a foreign language and they teach Modern Standard Arabic � Fusha� with the co-operation of educational aids developers.
