Egypt is probably the most popular destination for Arabic immersion programs so the current instability is affecting many language students.
The American University in Cairo (AUC) issued the following statement, “Classes at the university are cancelled for the coming week. We anticipate resuming administrative activities on Wednesday, February 2, 2011. AUC faculty, staff and students are being encouraged to remain in their homes, and AUC dorms are complying with the curfew imposed by the Egyptian government.”
