English Language Institutes in Jeddah-Part 1

The need to learn the English language is fast increasing in Saudi Arabia and in other non-native English-speaking countries. The Kingdom has seen many language institutes sprouting in its main cities during the past decade.

Given that private English language instructors demand very high fees, and in addition do not provide a certificate at the end of the training, many students prefer to take lessons at these institutes.
