The Sultanate of Oman: A nation located in the southwest corner of the Arabian Peninsula, defined by its abundant diversity. A land where the colorful strands of history, traditions, languages, and landscapes are carefully woven into a vibrant tapestry rich in culture. The country is recognized by the World Economic Forum in 2017 at the 4th safest country in the world.
Before 1970 the Sultanate was one of the least developed countries in the Arab world, with an average life expectancy of 49 years. Thanks to the leadership and wisdom of Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, the country experienced a period of rapid modernization lifting the nation out of poverty. Today, Oman has a highly-developed highway system, hundreds of schools, colleges, and universities, hundreds of modern hospitals, and a growing and innovative private sector. This period of modernization was met with reverence to the traditions of the Sultanate leading to the preservation of the rich Omani heritage and a harmonization between tradition and modernity.

Since 2012 Noor Majan has been tirelessly evaluating its programs to meet the linguistic and cultural goals of its students. Noor Majan brings together years of experience in teaching Arabic as a foreign language and cultural education. We believe in providing a rigorous education while fostering the ideal environment for cultural learning.
Ibri sits at a crossroads of civilizations; it is here where the ancient society of Majan emerged and flourished. It is here where the legacy of Majan lives through our institute and our work.
We are proud to have established our institute at this historic intersection of cultures and history, which is why we call ourselves Noor Majan. A name which reflects the dual identity of Oman: “Noor” or light in Arabic, symbolic of the knowledge and wisdom that was born out of the Arab/Islamic influence brought to the ancient land of Majan.
Noor Majan is the leading Arabic language institute in the Sultanate, crafting educationally rigorous Arabic language and cultural programs, equipping students of all backgrounds with the skills and confidence to engage with the Arab world.
