You might think you know Lebanon, but Lebanon isn’t Beirut or Tripoli or Baalbek! There is a whole world outside the big cities that you can get to know.

  • If you are over 16 why not come to Lebanon for a three month exchange
  • The exchange will provide you with accommodation during the period you attend school with an Arabic family
  • There will be two months of school and one month of holidays
  • The exchange is reciprocal. If you are accepted you will be expected to host a student either before or after your exchange
  • What you can offer a potential exchangee will be considered
  • To be successful you must demonstrate that you:
      • are outgoing and interested in Lebanon
      • are a good student of Arabic
      • enjoy new challenges
      • can act as a global ambassador.
