Anyone ever hear of this place? Supposedly in "greater Cairo". They posted an ad on bayt.com about four days ago.

This appears to be their website.
I'll let it speak for itself.

It's almost funny - here is an institution supposedly offering

At the International British Institute, we are committed to helping men and women develop the skills and knowledge to pursue many opportunities in fields involving languages and technology.

The International British Institute offer an education that can be used in some of today's fastest growing career fields, including electronics, web development, computer programming, computer networking, and computer drafting and design."

And yet, every link on their page, brings up this or a similar message:


"Not Found

The requested URL /moodle was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I'd place good money on the idea that the content that is grammatically accurate was stolen from another site.

Language academies in Egypt are pretty rare-at least ones where a foreigner could make a decent living. "Greater Cairo" means out in the boondocks where a taxi will overcharge you to take you there, and you'll be hard pressed to find a taxi to take you home.

I googled it and all that came up was the ad referenced in the OP. Sounds like a place to give a miss for now.
