Frequently asked questions 🤔❓

Prices for language holidays in Dubai can vary significantly depending on the type of course, length of stay and type of accommodation chosen. Here is a breakdown of the various expense items:

  • General English courses start at $245 per week, with sessions of 45 minutes each. There are also English courses for business or finance starting at $170 per week.

Yes, you can learn English in Dubai. The city is a multicultural environment with a diverse population where English is widely spoken and often serves as the language of communication between different communities. Dubai is home to numerous language schools and institutions offering English programs for all levels, from beginners to advanced students. What’s more, due to its position as an international business center, Dubai also offers excellent opportunities to learn professional and business English.

Teaching programs are varied and can include courses in General English, Business English, preparation for English proficiency exams such as IELTS or TOEFL, and other specializations. Students can choose between different types of courses and accommodation, depending on their budget and preferences. It can be an enriching learning experience, thanks to exposure to a dynamic city and a community of expatriates and international professionals.

The best time to study in Dubai is during the winter months, from November to March. During this period, temperatures are milder, fluctuating between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius, ideal for outdoor activities and exploring the city. It’s also peak tourist season, so although prices may be higher and hotels busier, it’s the ideal time to enjoy Dubai in comfortable weather conditions.
However, summer in Dubai, from June to September, is marked by very high temperatures, often above 40 degrees Celsius, and humidity levels that can reach 95%, making the climate particularly difficult to bear. Although it’s low season, with lower prices for hotels and activities, it’s advisable to avoid this period if you’re not used to hot weather.
April, May and October represent a good compromise, with temperatures starting to rise, but generally remaining below 35 degrees Celsius. These months may be appropriate if you want to enjoy the beaches while avoiding the extreme temperatures of summer.
It’s also worth noting that Ramadan can affect school and business schedules, with activity quieter during the day and busier after sunset.
In short, for a language stay in Dubai, aim for the winter months for the comfortable climate and the many activities available, while being prepared for potentially higher costs due to the high tourist season.

For nationals of France and many other countries, a visa is not required for stays of less than 90 days in Dubai, as a visitor’s visa is issued free of charge on arrival. However, if you are not a citizen of an exempted country, you will need to obtain a visa before leaving. There are several types of visa available, including single-entry and multiple-entry short-stay visas, and single-entry and multiple-entry long-stay visas. Prices vary according to visa type and duration. The conditions for obtaining a residence visa change regularly, and it is advisable to check the exact terms with the relevant authorities. For further details, please consult specialized websites or consular offices of the United Arab Emirates.

To help you choose the best place to stay in Dubai on a language study holiday, here are a few popular neighborhoods that might suit various criteria:

  • Type of accommodation: The Cité Internationale des Étudiants in Academic City offers student residences.
  • Budget: Al Karama is renowned for being more affordable, with many reasonably priced accommodation options.
  • Activities and social life: Downtown Dubai is the beating heart of the city, with a wealth of entertainment and cultural activities.
  • Safety: Most parts of Dubai are safe, but residential areas such as Emirates Hills and Arabian Ranches are particularly quiet.

Be sure to check the distance between your accommodation and your language school, as well as the amenities and transport available in each neighborhood to optimize your educational stay in Dubai.

To organize a language study holiday in Dubai, it’s crucial to choose the right period, taking into account the climate. October to April are the most pleasant months, with moderate temperatures and an ideal climate for outdoor activities. On the other hand, the summer months, from May to September, are very hot, which can make some activities less comfortable.
It’s also essential to evaluate your budget in order to determine the optimal length of your language stay. Take into account tuition fees, cost of living, housing, transportation, meals and recreational activities to estimate your expenses.
