May 2009 Update

We’d like to share with you the story of a young man who has come to AIL to supplement his university education. He says, “I am studying Trigonometry at this Institute. I have been studying here for about four months as well as studying at the university for my Bachelors of Business Administration Degree. My major aim (in coming to the center) is to focus on the sciences because I have the most problems with them. I have also come to this center because almost all of the teachers here come from the university and teach different subjects here. The discipline in this Institute is good and all the teachers have good behavior with their students.”
