School trip to Memphis
Hedayet Institute for Arabic Studies Spring Semester 2017.
Hedayet school students took their Arabic language skills to the street in a visit to the ancient city of Memphis (Mit Rahina), where the great colossus of Ramses II rests, together with other ancient Egyptian monuments from the 19th dynasty. “The touristic school trip is part of our various cultural activities every semester, which complement the total cultural immersion approach we adopt at Hedayet”, says Dr Nagwa Hedayet the institute Director.
Ramses II was one of the most important and powerful pharaohs in Egypt, the peace treaty he made with the Hittites is one of the earliest known peace treaties in history, a reproduction of it hangs in the United Nations headquarters today.
